Men's cycling kits: Pactimo Men's Summit Aero RT Jersey and Ascent Vector Bibs


$135 each, Pactimo.com

The draw: All-day comfort

This kit scored an “A” in aesthetics and delivered comfort to match. Our new go-to jersey for long rides on the road and dirt, it felt silky soft against the skin and was incredibly lightweight—like tissue paper. It’s packed with thoughtful details, like an internal jersey pocket with a hole for earbud wires, and a reflective rear waist gripper and armbands for added visibility. The bib’s chamois “provided ample padding without overwhelming the boys,” said one tester. The moisture-wicking bibs are available in two inseam lengths: 9 or 9.75 inches.
