MavicTech – Ergo 3D Insert, Ergo Grip Race, Sleek Power, Hot Ride

What i say –
What i like about mavic bib shorts are that they are long in the thigh and have good grippers. I find some bib shorts are like wearing hot pants and sit to high on my thigh. These don’t disapoint me! nice and long, sitting just above the knee. They are very ‘race fit’ and you can feel the muscle support even when just standing still. The material is super soft and the padding is layered and cut to the high degree you expect from Mavic. I’d expect the pad to be good on rides up to about 50-60 miles but after that i think they might be a bit to race orientated and comfort maybe lost. I could be subtly surprised though…my next kit purchase i think! Also Available in red/black

Mavic Sprint Jersey – £69.99

What Mavic say –
Highly breathable performance jersey
Reliable comfort, excellent fit in addition to the exceptional moisture management give this jersey a high performance to value ratio.
Mavic Tech – Wick Matrix, Hot Ride UV

What i say –
A good fitting jersey that sits nicely on the front and is plenty long enough at the back. No riding up for this jersey, especially since the gel grippers are super tacky. The material isn’t to thin and flimsy either. Once again you can fell the quality in the material and know that on those chilly morning rides that a baselayer would be apple at keeping you softly warm. One thing i found a bit odd was the sleeves felt a bit baggy for me. I’m a Small and i know i don’t have the largest biceps in the world but still I’d like something a little more fitted in the short sleeves. Also available in white, red and green.
We also have the matching Bib Shorts priced at – £89.99

Mavic Espoir Vest – £49.99

What Mavic say –
Everyday lightweight vest
Whether this vest is in the bottom of your jersey pocket “just in case” or on your back as you head out on an early morning ride, you will appreciate its lightweight Wind Ride protection.
Mavic Tech – Dura Lite, Wind Ride

What I say –
A seriously packable gilet/vest. This thing could easily scrunch up into your back pocket. Perfect if you live round her and get to the top of these windy mountains! This was an extra small and was probably a little to fitted for me, a small would be fitted enough not to flap around and still have room for layers if needed. Large zip pocket on the back and a tight knitted mesh back make it super light weight as well. Also comes in White and red!…mine will be a red and on order tomorrow!
