Bike Kit Close-Up: Lululemon

The company has now branched out into men’s cycling apparel with the same emphasis on a flattering fit

Lululemon is known for its form-fitting yoga pants for women, and the company has now branched out into men’s cycling apparel with the same emphasis on a flattering fit. Testers put the Sea to Sky jersey and bib shorts in the same category as high-end brands like Rapha due to its compressive material, “extremely nice, very dense” chamois and overall quality fit. (One minor fit exception was that the bib straps felt a little short compared to other bibs, but this may vary by rider.) The understated, solid color options are a welcome reprieve from flashy, overly branded apparel. One tester noted that even during two hours in and out of the saddle while mountain biking, the leg grippers stayed in place and the large panel of open mesh on the back allowed for breathability. Other features of note: the sleeves have a slightly longer cut, the pockets are large and snug and include a small zippered one for secure storage.
