Roka Gen II Elite Aero Short Sleeve Tri Shop & Shorts

The Draw: All-around luxury

Roka’s Gen II collection continues to impress with top-notch comfort, quality, aerodynamics, cooling, and function. Despite only coming in very basic colors (the entire line is a variation of white, black, and grey), the brand manages to infuse sleek design details that give this kit an upscale appearance. The aero short-sleeve tri top is new for 2019, giving those who prefer two pieces the full aero benefits and element protection of short sleeves (versus a tank). With matching shorts that come in both 7.5-inch and 9.5-inch length options, as well as eight different sizes (including tall), there’s a fit for almost every size triathlete. The jersey’s pockets are fairly small, but they easily hold everything needed for a longer bike and run. While white is the most eye-catching part of the whole kit, be aware that it can stain.
