This is a race-fit jersey. I'm not a chunky guy at 6' tall and 167 lbs, but this makes me look like a sausage around my non-6-pack middle. While I LOVE the bib shorts, this is either a size-up jersey or a do-not-buy if you aren't rail thin. Plus, while the zipper is hidden, it is one that I have found, with other kit, difficult to engage while riding. Zipper works fine going up/down, but getting it INTO the tiny slot while moving is a challenge.
Can't give the jersey a truly fair rating since I never rode in it, but it is not recommended based on being designed purely for skinny types.
Works great, no problems. Cleans up easily like everyone said. If you are anal-retentive, you may get annoyed that prolonged use of the trainer in one spot will leave indentations on the mat. Also, the sticker will come off if you roll it up to store. My 2 year old easily removed it because it had begun to crinkle after about 1 year of ownership (the mat, not the kid).
Has anyone paired this or a different Shimano MTB rear derailleur with 10spd Ultegra shifters? Running a compact Dura-ace drivetrain (but Ultegra shifters) and with one ride this summer (Harpoon B2B) I want to run a casette that's bigger than 28. Thanks!
Love the width/height of the lenses, so even with the frame I still have a ton of coverage. My old Natives are smaller and leave more areas where light comes in.
These fit well and are snug to my head; takes a bit of fiddling to get comfortable with a skullcap or winter hat when riding in the cold.
My only real gripe is that they do fog up easily. Not sure if it's b/c of the full frame trapping air or just how the size and my face shape work together. Definitely find that I have to take them off when climbing, and have to wipe them clean quite often.
So much better than the crap sports drinks out there. Love the Skratch stuff over those sticky and sweet drinks, and I like it better than NUUN (not that they are bad) because there isn't any fizzy-ness to it. I find it super easy to digest, a 1-lb package goes a long way. Lemon-lime is my fave; the raspberry one has too many particles that don't dissolve.
Just got this and am impressed. Got a large and it is snug, but not racer-tight/form-fitting. I'm 6', about 172 lbs and a 41 chest. Could have gone medium, but would likely be VERY tight.
Jersey feels as if it isn't even there. So light and breathable. Likely will be a great warm-weather jersey, it is comfortable in the cool (mid-70s) temps we have now, and with a base layer would be ok too. Would recommend.
My first pair of LG clothing and I am impressed. Of course, getting them for $59(!!!) @ Bonktown/Chainlove made it FAR better.
I'm 6' and generally about 177 lbs or so. Unfortunately, right now I'm about 185, since our 7-week-old baby is making exercise tough! Still, the large is the right size. I can't imagine going bigger, and at my regular riding weight/dimensions, I am sure these will be even more comfortable.
The fit is snug around my quads and the bands around the bottom of the legs feel tight at first, but they are comfortable throughout the ride. The chamois is super-soft and supportive. The straps fit comfortably; no pulling or cutting into shoulders.
I basically didn't notice much about these over two different 30-mile rides, except for the chamois. It is supportive and comfy, if a tad thick. You are aware it's there, unlike thinner ones.
Weather was around 55 both days, with 10 mph wind. My legs and groin were warm and comfortable. No chill issues at all.
Are they $170 worth it? Hard for me to say. But at $60 these were a STEAL and I wish I got a second pair in the alternate color.
Got the kit on sale from RC. Disliked the long sleeves of the jersey. I got the black jersey, and the long, black arms on the jersey had me worried about summer heat.
6', 180 lb. Size large.
I am sure they are comfortable and good while riding. But the sleeve length and compression cuffs at the bottom of the bib shorts were a no go for me.
6', 180 lbs. Got these and the jersey on sale, both in Large. Bibs fit fine, like 90% of the other Capo gear. The slight ribbing of the material felt interesting, but not offensive.
But I didn't like the cuffs at the bottom of the legs. Compression was uncomfortable just wearing them around. Maybe it would be better riding, but I disliked the jersey so much that I decided not to keep either part of the kit.
Really like these leg warmers. Easy on/off, nice material inside that feels a lot better than the arm and knee warmers from Capo's Modena line (which are ok, but a bit cheaper-feeling). L/XL fits me fine, with maybe one fold of excess material. My inseam is 32-33".
Have worn this in 50 to mid-50-degree temps by itself and in lower temps with my Craft baselayers. Fit for me (6', 180 lbs) is snug but not restrictive. I wear a size large in Capo gear. This fits better than the Riserva line, IMHO . Cuffs on the sleeves are a tad loose and can let cold air in. I bought the white version, and the material has a slight waffle-like texture.
I have a few pieces of Capo gear and picked these up as the sale price was good.
Overall, these have a fine chamois, though it is a tad on the thin side. But for 2-3 hours in the saddle it is fine. No worries. The straps don't pull on my shoulders at all. I returned a set of Capo Riserva bibs because the straps pulled WAAAY to hard on my shoulders both in and out of a tucked position.
Only complaint is the thin stitching. I've got two pulls/runs in the thigh stitching just from pulling these on. I'm 6' 179 lbs and haven't had this problem with ANY other bib. Makes me wonder if Capo cut costs with their 2011 line, as older stuff at the same original price point feels far more robust.
At the sale price they're fine bibs. Full retail, no way.
Bought these along with the white jersey. I'm 6' tall, 179 lbs, and wear a large in all Capo. I really like these bibs. They fit well, good support, the straps don't pull on my shoulders (unlike the Riserva bibs), and the seams are unobtrusive. Chamois feels thin when I'm squeezing it, but I had no issues with a recent 50-mile ride in these.
Definitely recommend these. Great full kit.
Love, LUV, LOVE this jersey. It's fast become my favorite to wear in the ever-warming weather.
I'm 6', 179 lbs and wear a large in Capo. This jersey fits well, snug but not Euro/race tight. The full zip is great, easy to open and close when riding. White color certainly helps in the hot sun. It breathes well too.
I definitely want to get the blue jersey if/when I can catch it on sale.
Let me first say that 3 of my other kits are Cap (RealCyclist one, Turismo, and Atlas) and a Descent kit. I'm 6' tall, about 179 lbs, and wear size large in all the kits. All fit fine. I am, according to all Capo sizing charts that I've seen, a Large.
I bought these on Bonktown for about $109. They finally arrived and I put them on to test fit, and they felt snug. More snug than other Capo stuff. But I decided to give them a test ride. They got uncomfortable after 5-6 miles and my 20-mile ride was definitely less enjoyable because of the bibs.
The leg grippers are fine, but some of the seams dig in. The BIGGEST issue I have is that these don't seem sized right. The straps pull down uncomfortably (they leave a mark on my shoulders) and the neck area at the back of the bib cuts into my neck. It's as if the bibs are just too short in overall length.
They fit my thighs and waist fine, but the straps cutting into my shoulders makes these impossible to wear.
I tried them again last night, just to make sure I wasn't being picky. Same issue, this time on a 10-mile ride (cut short because of the straps). So they are being returned. Disappointed with these...but would be REALLY annoyed if I had paid full price.
FWIW, the chamois is very thick and comfortable. Thicker than that in the Turismo.
I'm 6' 180-186 lbs. Less Schleck and more normal American. While I don't have a gut, I'm not rocking the 6-pack abs either. The low cut of the bibs made me wish for a bit more support around the waistline, and the wide shoulder straps were something that I could never get comfortable with in my test fittings. The shorts fit really well in size XL and were comfortable. Tight, but not restrictive. The chamois was very good and seemed well positioned. I really WANTED to like this and keep them, but I'd be unhappy in the end. They're great for Cat1 riders who have 3% body fat and rock hard abs. If you lack that, you may be uncomfortable, particularly if you like bibs that have a bit more support across the midsection.
34" waist and I'm between 182-186 lbs. Bought the large and while they're snug they aren't constricting at all. Very happy with them compared with PI bibs I also have.
