Bontrager 2014 summer clothing - just in

Lightweight, mesh jerseys, plus stretch- and breathable vest

Trek's house brand Bontrager has made decent strides with its road clothing over the past couple of seasons, moving from relatively generic product to technical pieces with merit. For this summer, Bontrager has a few new tops, including some light wicking jerseys, and a high-performance vest good for tucking in the jersey pocket when the summer rains are threatening.

Bontrager's clothing ranges from the budget RL line up through the top-end RXXXL with jerseys that sell for US$199/£119. Here we look mostly at the mid-range RXL, which hits the sweet spot of good quality at a non-outrageous price.
