The TwinSix Betty jersey has a retro feel, with the black and white houndstooth print and pale '6' logo on the sleeves. Three deep pockets at the back will stash tubes, shades and energy gels with ease, and the front features an almost full-length zip for some cracking cleavage posing if you so desire it.
Designed in the USA, TwinSix is probably a new name to you. It's the brainchild of two graphic designer bike nuts who got pretty disillusioned with most of the riding gear out there so decided to create their own. The result, like you see here, is a bold fusion of crisp style and practicality.
The fit is snug and shapely without being overly tight and the sleeves are a decent length, giving you good shoulder coverage when you're in the riding position, plus the back is cut longer to keep your kidneys covered.
Made of polyester it doesn't snag or fluff up like some lycras, and it wicks sweat well. Once you check out the other TwinSix designs you'll be hooked, though at this price you'd be wise to put it on your Christmas list and drop some BIG hints...
