Happy New Year to all my readers, I hope this year will bring a lot of adventures and collaborations!
Starting the year with a post about fitness apparel, you’ll see a lot of these posts coming, and for different sports!
Today’s apparel will interest the bicycle riders.
For the bicycle riders, Specialized designs advanced bikes and equipment that make your ride better.
They are known for their Deflect™ Reflect Hybrid Jacket which flawlessly performs a lot of duties, ranging from protection to visibility. It is made from Specialized‘s wind and water-resistant Deflect material, this fabric is extremely lightweight and breathable. The design also includes two front vents, a large back vent and laser perforated exhaust points throughout the jacket for a strategic level of breathability.
Specialized has designed this jacket to be extremely versatile, and to complement this, the sleeves are made to be completely removable. This way, you’re able to wear it as a jacket when it’s pouring with rain, and then zip off the sleeves and stow them away once the clouds clear.
As if this was not enough, this jacket features Schoeller® fabric with 3M® reflective technology that takes millions of microscopic glass beads and permanently seals them to the fabric structure. As you can imagine, this feature will increase your visibility to others on the road when it encounters light.
I got the chance to try the Shasta Long Sleeve Top and the Shasta Knickers
The Shasta Long Sleeve Top
It is designed to be right in between generous and slim, or what some might call “active,” while the long sleeves work in harmony with its soft, warming VaporRize™ construction. This material is extremely diligent at managing sweat buildup, so you’ll always keep as dry as possible during your workout. But should you feel the need to vent a little built-up heat, feel free to use the quarter-length front zipper to let it out.
To make it more practical, there are two zippered rear pockets for stashing your goods, plus reflective accents that’ll increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
The Shasta Knickers
Then there are plenty of pockets to house your music and other small items, while the second-skin fit offers plenty by the way of compressive support.
Whether for bicycle riding, for gym training or for relaxing, no matter the activity the Specialized apparel feels like a second skin, ensuring the proper amount of support and comfort.
