I have a Tri Suit from Real that I absolutely love, so when I saw the new cycling kit in a design I liked, I went for it. The jersey fit true to the size chart. It has a really nice feeling material on the back and shoulders for sun protection, as well as a more breathable material on the chest/stomach that isn't exposed as much. Great structured pockets for storage, clean stitching throughout. My go to kit traditionally has been Assos Equipe RS line, it fits me best and if I have a long day in the saddle I know I'll be comfortable. This is priced similarly to that line, so I expect it to compete on all aspects. So far it has passed with flying colors. The only thing I can't speak to is longevity at this point, but I see no reason for concern there.
Thanks for the thoughtful review and kind words. Enjoy the ride and let us know how things are after you have a year in the new jersey.
