Looks and performance from Campagnolo

BikeRadar score4/5

The original bicycle component maker has often offered Campagnolo-branded clothing for super fans to display their affection for the Italian company. While its style is a given, the new range is Campagnolo’s most technical yet, and I put its Titanio Jersey and Magnesio Bibshorts to the test.

Campagnolo Titanio Jersey

The new range includes the compressive Titanio Jersey, aimed at reducing muscle fatigue. It’s constructed with minimal seams for a clean look, using stretchy Lycra that keeps it snug for aerodynamic benefits.

The near elbow-length sleeves have slim thermo-taped grippers, while the broad elasticated hem uses printed silicone Campagnolo script to maintain its position.

The reverse-fitted zip’s ends are protected by garages, and the generous upper one is embossed with the Campagnolo emblem.

Centrally split, the rear pockets are easy to access, and spacious, plus there’s a waterproof phone pocket with a hidden zip located on the right side.

The folded collar is cut lower at the front, and works with the close-fitting, smooth Lycra to be comfortable when zipped up. The snug fit keeps the jersey flap-free, and my only minor gripe is how the arm grippers can feel tight on arms that aren’t slim and toned.

Campagnolo Magnesio Bibshorts

Also designed to provide compression, the Magnesio bibshorts are anatomically cut, with a high quality, light, but robust feel.

Thermo-taped lower bibs provide structure and support, while the stretchier, silicone-infused shoulder straps ensure stability, with a thin but strong mesh back section between them.

The Lycra is treated with Coldblack, which blocks UV rays, helping to keep you cool, and the legs have raw edges with an effective printed silicone gripper to hold them.

Ensuring long ride comfort, the two-way stretch pad is triple density with gel inserts, all covered with an antibacterial carbon-infused filament. The muscular support offered by the Magnesios makes them superior endurance or competition bibshorts.

Robin began road cycling in 1988, and with mountain bikes in their infancy, mixed experimental off-road adventures with club time trials and road races. Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that. Ten years as a Forensic Photographer followed, honing his eye for detail in pictures and words. He has shot at the biggest pro events since the '90s, and now he's here, drawing on all those experiences to figure out what makes a bike or component tick.
