Shutt VR Training jersey review£89.00

Merino-blend cycling top

BikeRadar score4/5

Three little words: ‘Made in Britain’. Not often seen today, but part of Shutt VR’s ethos. And the Yorkshire-based company have delivered the goods with their new retro-flavoured training jersey, part of the company’s expanded 2011 range.

Thanks to flatlock stitching on the chest panel we found this more comfortable than previous Shutt tops, while the merino-polyester blend Sportwool kept whiffs at bay after days of riding.

It came up well after washing too and retained its shape. It has a full-length zip, three rear pockets, reflective details and comes in four colour options, in sizes S-XL.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
