Premium cyclewear brand Vélobici has developed a new super-lightweight fabric for its latest collection of performance jerseys and bib shorts. The snappily named VB/Pro-VR2 is described as “a high-tech performance nylon, developed with a honeycomb fabric construction and providing a lightweight 150g fabric that excels on the road.”

The new three-season kit promises to perform exceptionally under warm conditions due to the fabric’s ease of movement and wicking capabilities.

The René is a high performance full-length zip jersey benefitting from a standard race fit. It features superlight ‘vélobici’ Jacquard detailing to the side panels and underarm for added ventilation, and is completed with Vélobici’s classic eye for detail, with embroidered René and VB logos to the chest and the brand’s recognisable reflective binding to the rear pocket and hem.

The use of performance nylon, over polyester, keeps this four-pocket jersey (one zipped and waterproof) durable, while delivering better moisture wicking and odour resistance. It is available in sand with wine and black detailing or in wine with sand and black detailing. The René jersey is priced at £175.

Designed to complement both jerseys, the René bib shorts are made from VB/Pro-VR1 performance fabric (280g) to ensure extra comfort in the saddle. It features a new VB pad, constructed using foam carving and wave body technology, this is then covered with bioceramic anti-bacterial fabric that is made using clay minerals. The minerals help reflect F.I.R infrared rays emitted by the human body, providing the rider with unrivalled comfort and thermoregulation. Vented lightweight centre back, silicone leg grippers with Vélobici butt and VB thigh embroideries finish the classic look. They are available individually at £180 and are available as a set at £310.
