Decent looking kit but still with stick on plastic logos that crack and peel and look shitty after a few uses.

Finally some reflectivity on the Perfetto/Gabba.

The vest now has a drop tail like the rest of the line.

But unfortunately, uses new GoreTex "infinium" material. This is still a membrane laminated to an outer fabric. Fully windproof means not breathable. Polartec Neoshell or Powershield Pro that actually allow a bit of airflow are actually better fabrics for cycling.

A step backwards on those garments, I reckon.

I like that they're using dyneema in their shorts now. What a great material.

What would be a bib that has a construction similar to the Evoluzione but with a X2 pad?
I love my Inferno's but the construction is fragile as heck. I have a set of the old Body Paint (2.0?) that have the X2 pad and it's fantastic, but not made anymore.

I like a lot the Rapha Pro Team bibs but the price is outrageous and the lower lines have a fit and pad that break the deal for me.

Thanks!

I was a Rapha Pro bib fan until I found these: https://isoles.cc/ cheaper, great service (unlike Raphas which has serious dropped off the past 6 months), fit is spot on, fantastic quality and very comfy in the saddle. Can't recommend highly enough

Don’t agree on the Rapha service part. I stopped buying Rapha some two years ago. But recently crashed in their Pro Aero Jersey (~3yrs old), sent it in for repairs, they didn’t have the right material, so they sent me a 80 euro credit instead. Great service in my view. Compare that to for example Assos who said bibs are not fixable, it’s your loss even if they were only a month old.

Should say Rapha's delivery service. Customer service top notch. Last 3 orders all sent late, wrong items sent, lost returns. One order took 3 weeks to arrive. Granted I got £50 voucher for this but it shouldn't happen. Lost a loyal customer now.

I like their Climber's jerseys due to their high temperature rating and after the current underwhelimng (mostly dark) color options I welcome return of some nearly white option into their range.

However what I find funny is that they rate the 119g Aero Race at 4/5 for lightweightness, while just 3g (claimed) lighter 116g Climber's gets 5/5. :-D
The weight difference between these 2 current generation jerseys is much bigger (159g vs 83g). These new ones seem very similar to each other.

I like the picture of Moscon with the torn bibshorts. :twisted:

Love my FAR bibs and Climbers jerseys. That's all I've been wearing all summer.

For those who have both the Aero Race and Climbers jerseys, do you wear the same size, or do you size up for the Aero Race? I wear an XL in the Climbers and it's a snug, but comfortable fit, the way a jersey should fit, imo (doesn't flap in the wind, but I can still move in it). My SanRemo is a L, and it is tight, I only wear it for racing.

For me same size M for Aero Race (i own and i really like it), and Climbers Jersey (i tried in the shop, but at the end decide it to dont buy it)...
