Skins C400 Cyclewear Review
Executive summary about Cyclewear by Jason
The C400 range is a layering system that features everything you would expect from high-end cycle wear, plus the performance boost of Skins BioAcceleration technology. Skins C400 compression wear has been developed to enhance your potential naturally. Increased circulation helps reduce lactic acid build-up so you can ride harder for longer. Skins compression half tights for running extremely comfortable.
Skins cheaper Short sleeve (non-compression) jersey features three rear pockets plus the all important rear zipper pocket so why not the compression jersey? On longer rides it's a major challenge fitting bits and pieces into just two pockets that sit on top of each other. If it's a cost issue then Skins should consider adding the three rear pockets plus zipper pocket and increasing the price from £89.98 to £100, the cost would still provide excellent value for money. Apart from the rear pocket design it's a great jersey.
The mesh tank is meant to be worn under the bibs and jersey and works well in all climates providing extra warmth in cooler conditions as well as keeper the body dryer, due to it's wicking design, in warmer temperatures. Exceptional!
