Little Kit

Little Kit

When you're riding there is nothing worse than uncomfortable kit. So we thought we would share our favourite items and why as well as our wish list.

Currently wearing and loving -

We both love Le Coq Sportif, their jerseys are affordable and fit well and they look pretty damned good too! We just wish they had a bigger range for women, we would happily wear all of the men's designs. The kids jerseys are also a good fit too for us little people though!

Rapha's bibs although they're more so on the pricey side, they are probably the best around. Compared to other women's bib shorts on the market, the full vest top is a lot more practical and comfortable than other designs. The fit is great and they are super comfy.

Castelli clothing generally comes up super small and a lot of their clothing is almost see-through! But their Fortuna Jersey is the loveliest fit, and the cut of the sleeves is really nice too, the only thing is the pockets are a little on the small side still love it though.

Currently lusting over -

I have had my Specialized Ember shoes for a little while now and they've been great, although the fit is a little big in the toe box, so my next shoe purchase will be the Specialised Zante, the fit is a lot more streamline and fastens better. With a carbon sole making them super stiff as well as light weight and they also come in black!

We've loved all the amazingly beautiful patterned kits that have been flying around.

Our favourite's include:

We couldn't mention kit we're lusting after without mentioning our little friend Ginger Wheels aka Matt! 

We're loving his designs and can't wait to see the kit made up.

So maybe the lusting list is never ending but whatever a girl can dream!...
We really love The Heavy Pedal Zephyr frame and well the kit to go with it is just as awesome
