ELIEL CLASSICS RINCON JERSEY
We’re firm believers in simple being better, especially when it comes to kits. Eliel seems to agree with its Classics Rincon Jersey. Made in California, this jersey is no frills, providing the close fit and breathable fabric expected from a race-oriented top. A low-profile collar and aero sleeves also reveal the performance-oriented nature of this jersey. We’d gladly wear any of the understated color options it comes in, like forest green and navy blue. They’re good looking without being flashy. But beyond that, this jersey comes with carefully designed features like tapered pockets that are easier to access, to make every ride just a little better. A reflective Eliel patch and trim on the back keep you a little more visible when training rides go later than expected. $130; elielcycling.com
If you haven’t heard of ROKA yet, it’s time you give the brand’s performance sunglasses a look. The first thing you’ll notice about the CP-1x shades is the weight, or, rather, the lack of it. At 27 grams, these things are seriously feathery. But they haven’t been made light at the expense of durability, strength or optical quality. The lenses are given multiple coatings, including one to resist scratching and another to repel fog and sweat. And there’s a lens option, including polarized and prescription, for every condition. Because no two faces are the same, adjustable nose pads and temple arms mold precisely to your face for an unparalleled fit. And GEKO material on the touch points keeps the glasses from slipping, especially under heavy, sweaty efforts. Everything comes together to create next-level performance eyewear that will disappear on your face. $215; 27g; roka.com
