Plus, all of the items feature a reflective logo that helps to keep you visible in low light. Prices range from $20 to $225. Keep scrolling to find out more about each piece.
For men, the 7mesh Quantum Jersey Short-Sleeve Top is a tight-fitting full-zip riding jersey that is comfortable and features four-way stretch for mobility, designed specifically for the riding position. Perfect for all of your cycling adventures, it has five pockets to hold all of your small essentials such as money, keys and more. You can pick up this top for $140 and it’s available in three color options.
The two brands have also created a very unique piece for men and women called the MK2 Bib Shorts. These are designed to being able to secure your shorts from not sliding or falling down while you’re peddling. With sweat-wicking material, the bibs will be comfortable and breathable throughout your ride. Also, the material is made with a “clean finish construction”, which means that all of the seams and edges won’t be irritating to the skin. For women, these bibs are priced at $150 and for men they’re $200.
“A lot of the gear on the market gets wet and heavy in difficult conditions, and it doesn’t protect you,” says Jordan CEO of 7Mesh. “Our goal is to create light, functional, durable equipment with a premium on fit and moisture management. It’s an alpinist’s approach to riding.”
If you’re on the hunt for a new workout jacket, we’ve got you covered. The Resistance Jacket features water-resistant material in case you get caught in a storm. Plus, in case of warm weather, it packs down to the size of a fist and can fit into a pocket of your pants or top. Also, with an integrated ventilation system, this jacket is breathable and will keep you cool throughout your ride. It’s available in a bright red color for men, that’s perfect for Fourth of July and a pretty blue for women.
