Lol. Agreed. But as a longtime wearer of Assos and now Q36.5, I've decided that for me the crazier the product name or description the better the product actually will be. Kukupenthouse? Are you kidding me? But I can't deny they're hands down the finest most comfortable shorts I've ever worn.

Will probably try Q 36.5 - but it seems L1 Essential Bibs are being phased out. So options will soon only be Miles Gregarious (classic construction) or the top-end Dottore and Vented, whereas L1 Essential was "mid range". Looking over the website saw the following and .....

In this case the pure silver thread’s greatest performance advantage is not given by its anti-bacterial or conductive qualities but by it qualities of protection from electrostatic and magnetic interference (the so-called “electrosmog” pollution of electromagnetic radiation resulting from wireless technology and mains electricity). The protection offered by the silver thread from these waves allow the active muscles to operate with less “distractions”, further refining the ergogenic function of Q36.5’s high density woven fabrics.

integrità means
1. entirety, integrality, wholeness
2. (metaphorically) integrity, moral rectitude,...
kids don't take latin anymore (sigh)

i bet they meant the 1st meaning - the sum total of the design and execution, or something like that

edit: (and btw rectitude doesn't mean having a pole up one's ahem...)

Rectum? I hardly knew ’em!

I love that we’re parsing translations of ad copy for meaning. Yeah, “entirety” does make more sense (inasmuch as ad copy ever makes sense at all…). :)

Good post Basillic. I give them a pass on the Italian to English communication. In the end it's the product that counts and not the advertising. And if one is looking for a well designed/subtle jersey, I don't think they can be beat.

Noticing quite a few folks with Gobik kit in Mallorca. Looks clean and sharp from what I've seen.

At this point it is really just:

    * who has the best graphic designers.
    * who has the best taste.
    * who has the best social media game.

sadly none of the above really has an impact on the performance of the jersey other than how it looks.
(how well does it breath / wick in hot weather .... are the pockets saggy?)

There are exceptions of course but I agree that you cannot compare an established company with dozens of workers who have made millions of clothes in the last decades with a couple of hipsters who want to make money fast by offering their cool design ideas to anyone who can produce anything for them.

And they all seem to copy each other with fits. Almost everyone goes for tight race fit jersey with long aero sleeves. If you don't want that you end up with loose jerseys with short sleeves. Trying to find well designed jerseys with short (normal/classic) sleeves and a decently tight but not race tight fit seems near to impossible.

The youtube video is hilarious and not that wrong, unfortunately :). Did you make it?

The cycling jersey game is out of control.

These people are charging $125 - $250 for pretty colors made out of plastic threads.

It would be one thing if they were actually doing R&D to make new wunder fibers, but they aren't. They're just mixing and matching fabrics made by other people, creating an IG account and posting some artsy, terribly filtered pictures of a skinny guy on a bike above the hills of LA.

Does anyone make any decent looking clothing sub-$100 anymore? I've haven't been on a road team for most of a decade now due to my job(s), moving, etc., but I might join a local elite 1/2 team in our next location just to get in on some good looking, well designed threads. Racing unattached pro MTB is too expensive.
