POC Sports’ apparel line is undeniably eye-catching. The Swedish company’s focus is on high performance and comfort with “proactive safety” in mind, and its can’t-miss-it-orange, white and black kits stand out not just for their colors but for their clean, crisp lines and smart details. When you first put it on, the jersey cut feels a little shorter in the front compared to others, but that’s a purposeful move, as it’s made to be most comfortable in a riding position. The entire kit feels incredibly smooth (read: aerodynamic) on, and the fabric is sleek, seamless and stretches easily—it feels noticeably more luxurious than your average bike shop jersey. In addition to all the reflective details, one of the coolest features is the labeled “My Info” pocket where you can store your ID and cell phone, making it obvious where to go if you got into a crash. Our only issue: Although the kit wicks well, you might want a slightly more breathable material for temperatures in the upper 80s or higher.
