POC WOMEN’S ULTIMATE VPDS BIB SHORTS
Not all bibs are created equal. POC isn’t the first company to release women’s bibs that allow for a bathroom break without removing the jersey, but with the Ultimate VPDs Bib Shorts, the Swedish company thinks it has the most advanced pair available—and these bibs are made by women, for women. They feature a new more comfortable strap design, with a single strap up front that splits into two traditional straps in the back. Adding to the comfort is POC’s women-specific chamois, featuring silicone inserts for vibration dampening. In the back, an overlapping fabric construction allows enough stretchiness for a nature break, while maintaining the compression needed for riding. And to keep things as fast as possible, the fabric features an aero print and integrated leg grippers, with everything sewn together with minimal stitching. $200; pocsports.com
VOLER CALIBER SEQUOIA THERMAL JERSEY
All-day adventures and off-season training call for comfort, not skintight aero fabrics. Voler’s Caliber Sequoia Thermal Jersey is a cool-weather garment featuring the brand’s relaxed club cut. But just because it’s cut looser doesn’t mean it’s not a performance piece. Made entirely from GeoTherm fabric, this long-sleeve jersey retains warmth while still remaining breathable and quick drying. Additional details like a locking zipper allow for easy one-handed operation while eliminating any excess material from the zipper area. And a silicone gripper in the waist keeps your jersey in place all-day-long. For $89, this jersey is a great deal that will keep you going strong through the cool-weather months. $89; voler.com
