Thankfully Velocio stayed away from using white in their new cross specific Men’s/Women’s ES CX Suit. The Italian made garment gets their ES bib short lower, along with a soft yet durable upper. The legs stay in place with printed silicone grippers, while the top gets an internal micro brushed treatment. The outside has a single pocket for a bottle or other goodies, a YKK Vision zipper, and clear logos. Additionally, Cytech helped create the high density chamois that’s attached to an anatomically designed pattern. Men’s and Women’s are both priced at $330.
