Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'll cut to the chase here; this jersey really surpassed my initial expectations. I believe this is shimano's first foray into the road apparel, as they had made some MTB apparel previously. I had tapered my expectations of fit & performance accordingly.

I was looking for an all-black jersey with minimal branding and a solid fit, which is usually fairly difficult for someone who is 6'3" and weighs around 177 - 180 lbs. Turns out - I ended up really loving this jersey for those reasons stated, and more.

Fit is really great - tad larger than a traditional Euro fit, (I find myself wearing a M in Euro-cut). Went for a Large and it's a great fit in the body/stomach - tight in the arms, and arm length was spot on - not capped sleeves, coming to slightly above tru mid bicep. no rubbing or hot spots, no bulky zippers, neck/collar fit great.

Material used is a huge plus - it's not see-through thin, but still feels lighter than traditional lyrca for, say, training jerseys. The jersey also feels very waterproof, while retaining stretch - almost feeling like a more robust fabric overall.

I have been using this jersey for almost any temps, wore it in the fall, used it last year in the heat of summer - and now I've been riding in it during spring. Legit all-around jersey, couldn't be happier with the purchase.

These shoe covers are exactly what I was looking for. Stylish, effective in keeping your shoes clean of dirt & grim (especially helpful in winter riding weather/general shoulder season riding).

Being made of Latex/rubber - I figured that warming properties would be an added benefit, surely not expected. To my surprise, these have kept my feet from becoming numb on windy rides, and extra cold rides (<32 F).

I love that these come in a variety of colors, look great on the feet, and are totally minimal (aka not bulky/stiff waterproof material).

Some may complain about having these stick together in storage (haven't had a problem) and getting these on your feet (give yourself an extra 5 min before you ride out and be patient)
