Two for Today: Velocio & Pearl Izumi

VELOCIO RADIATOR MESH JERSEY

When the heat cranks up, the Velocio Radiator Mesh jersey will keep you forging onward. The front is made from Polartec Delta, a fabric made with Tencel that actively cools you as you ride. The updated 2020 edition gets a new version of perforated mesh fabric—made of recycled polyester—on the sleeves and back. Plus, it provides SPF30 sun protection, so you don’t have to worry about mesh sunburns, unlike with some other summer-weight jerseys.

PEARL IZUMI PRO AIR BIB SHORT

The Pearl Izumi PRO Air Bib Short is the pair of bibs you’ll want to reserve for the longest, most challenging rides. For these top-tier bibs, Pearl Izumi employs a stretch weave for noticeably higher compression and support, while laser-cut fabric helps make these the lightest bibs in the brand’s entire line. For added comfort, a welded and taped construction between the fabric reduces irritating seams. And of course, bibs are only as good as their chamois, so Pearl Izumi finishes off this pair with its PRO Escape 1:1 Chamois.
