They are basically a thick plastic bag which explains price. Decently waterproof but you'll steam if you wear it for any period while riding. Fine for a quick shower.

I'm gonna give the rain jacket a try. Polartec Neoshell fabric which is top top stuff. Might try the 4-way stretch shorts too.

Down to 80 notes. Really rate this.

seems to be an issue with them blowing off some rims,

mine blew off in the workshop at Giant, wasn't prepared to take that risk so removed them,

I've got 24mm Turbo Cottons on at the moment, fast tyres

What's the comfort like on them Jesus? For the price they look good. Quite like the jerseys that they've just released.
