Candy X seems like a fitting description for Capo’s latest kit. Offering a contrasting, high visibility look without the use of Hi Viz green, Candy X builds on the color palate found in their previous Limited Edition Leggero SL kit. Going a bit more wild with the graphics, Candy X uses Capo’s SL level clothing with a Limited Edition jersey, bibs, and of course a few essentials to really dial in you kit game…

Crafted using an 11 panel design with a race fit, the SL jersey uses new Aero micro fiber as well as their Leggero and Speed fabric. For increased visibility the sleeves include 360º Luminescence cuffs which are paired with additional reflective inserts throughout. Out back are the standard three pockets and the jersey closes with a full length 6mm zipper. Made in Italy, the jersey sells for $180.

For the perfect match you’re going to want the Candy X SL bibs. Built with a D4 Evo EIT insert for the chamois, the SL bibs also use the 360º Luminescence technology for the 7cm compression bands. The 12 panel construction includes a high degree of compression and the bibs are made in Italy. Pricing on the bibs is set at $230, but since you’re probably going to buy the matching kit everything is eligible for a 15% bundle discount when you buy all 4 pieces.

To complete the set you’re going to need the Special Edition Candy X Meryl sock and Camelbak Podium Bottle. Running a 15cm cuff to show off the Candy X graphics, the Meryl sock uses their Skinlife Hollow constriction which includes the use of Polymide yarns for moisture and odor control.  The Podium bottle is the new 24oz model we’ve come to love and is a perfect compliment to the rest of the kit. If not part of the bundle, the socks and bottle will sell for $20 and $15 each.

Candy X SL kits are limited to 150 pieces of each, so to ensure a complete kit in your size you should get your sweets fix early.

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

No matching gloves, really? I just can’t justify a repaint on my bike if they aren’t going to put out a full kit.

$410 for a riding kit? What is the markup on this stuff?

The Euro to USD conversion rate definitely is the best it has been in years, we should be getting better prices on this stuff.

I really like a lot of their designs. I just can’t afford them.

Don’t knock the pricing…. a so called Colorado company, Pactimo, sells expensive kit with little Colorado flags sewn in plain sight and for high prices and upon closer inspection they are Made In China. We KNOW the Italians are working for a much higher wage than the Chinese are, so what is a rip off. I also agree with Erik, wheres the gloves ! Nothing is as soft as bubble gum colored lycra to wipe my nose on.

Kinda off on a tangent but why the hell can’t anybody make cycling jerseys that fits like they are supposed too. EVERY brand I have used exept Squadra has their off the shelf stuff hang over your ass in back. Look at pro teams, the stuff is fitted so it rides up higher in the rear, how hard is it to do that with “race fit” stuff.comment image

$410 will buy you a down jacket suitable for Everest.

@Jeb – I’ve had no issues with Voler? I have one of their jerseys and they fit tight snug (Euro Race Cut) and are not long at all.
