A couple of new clothing items for the summer released by Craft this week.
First, and undoubtedly drawing on the feedback from the Saxo Bank road squad, the Elite Attack Bib shorts are the company’s state-of-the-art high-end shorts and make use of a ‘bi-component’ material that is claimed to provide breathability and compression and which makes use of carbon fibres to regulate temperature. The pad is similarly impressive, with a seamless, anatomically moulded, anti-microbial and gender-specific chamois with multi-layer gel padding.
Next up, the Marathon Top is a sleeveless base layer making use of a ‘hexachannel’ polyester fabric with mesh on the outside to provide high levels of ventilation and draw moisture effectively and quickly away from the skin.
For women, the Mesh Superlight SL is a sleeveless top designed for hot temperatures and boasts ‘outstanding moisture management’ thanks to ‘polyester fibres worked in a unique knitting construction’ and an outer mesh.
