When flashier kits go out of style, Search and State’s polished look will remain a classic mainstay in your cycling wardrobe. Created in Midtown Manhattan, Search and State’s tailored kits focus on luxury and comfort, with a simple, subtle design that performs. Testers like the “perfect fit” of the jersey with a slightly longer sleeve cut, and found the bibs had a just-right leg width and waist size (one tester noted, however, that the straps seemed a little shorter lengthwise compared to other kits). The jersey material is thin and light, and the bibs have a thick chamois best suited for road bike rides. The leg gripper stayed put without being too tight, even while going in and out of the saddle during a three-hour cyclocross ride.
