Kicking off 2016 right, we bring you the latest custom Above Category kit from Q36.5 in Bolzano, Italy. Constructed using their Miles Gregarious bibshort and R1 Jersey, it's a kit that matches Q36.5's technical design language we so adore, with the comfort to match.
For this round we went with something a little louder than typical AC-style, a lime green leitmotif that coincidentally matches our new Mosaic RT-1 demo bikes. And some of our new favorite shoes, the fi:zi'k R3B. And the Kask Protone helmet in anthracite/green. And the rest of Q36.5's inline offerings. See where we're going with this? In any case, you will be seen, especially with horizontal color banding on the jersey - crucial to visibility by drivers and riders alike.
The Above Category R1 Jersey uses a training cut that's a bit more generous than the L1 Jersey, as well as more traditional lycra fabrics. But as with all things Q36.5, the textiles are the highest-quality, making for an extremely lightweight, breathable piece. A standard three-pocket arrangement in the rear of the jersey offers plenty of room for anything you need to carry on the bike, and a secure zipper pocket on the right rear offers stow-space for valuables.
Our Above Category Miles Gregarious bibshorts are constructed to the same spec as the standard Q36.5 Miles, but use a textured panel for printing on the sides of the legs, with a bright green band that can render even the pastiest of knee warmer-dwellers looking slightly tan.
Quantities of the kit are limited, so move quickly!
