Our review

Top-notch merino base but way too expensive for the majority of riders

We loved the shape and design of this top. Long at the back, curving up at the front, it’s cycling-specific and has a panel construction that follows every move you make without bunching.


The Merino is smooth and comfortable to wear and the flat-locked seams add to the appeal. It made it attractive enough to wear with just a gilet over the top – a perfect combo – and because it’s made from wool, we stayed warm without getting too hot.


The only downside, which you’ve probably already spotted, is the price. We’re firm believers in paying an appropriate price for a performance product, even if it means we have to save up, but this particular garment is just too expensive.
