Featuring wide mesh side panels, two large back pockets, and a shelf bra (the only top tested with this feature), this top is functional, super-flattering and one of the most comfy we tested. Like the Coeur, this kit features a seamless fleece chamois that doesn’t feel like it’s there—ideal for short- course racing, though it can go long if you’ve toughened up your bum. The shorts feature a wide waist and the leg bands are pretty low cut (and lower in front than in back), but still don’t gap with the top. We liked the placement of the mesh panels and the soft material. This kit should fare well at a hotter race.
