The Etxeondo Orhi Bib Shorts are a new product from the Spanish company and are their second most expensive offering. They're very well designed with a racey fit and comfortable chamois and the bold leg hem gives them a distinctive look. Well suited to riding in hot weather, with key mesh panels to aid breathability.
The Etxeondo Feather Short Sleeve jersey is an extremely slim fitting jersey with a very breathable fabric. It's excellent on the bike but does come with a high price tag. It does look good though, stylish and simple, and you're not likely to see many people wearing Etxeondo kit on UK roads.
Spanish clothing brand Etxeondo have launched the Etxeondo Bira Bib Shorts at the lower end of their usual price list to create a more 'value for money' range. Whether you consider £79.99 for a pair of bibshorts value for money or not, its hard to argue with the quality.

The Etxeondo Trier is a high-quality summer jersey with some neat features.
It's made in Spain from Meryl Microfibre fabric – fine nylon and elastane. This is lightweight stuff and very stretchy so you get a body hugging fit without it feeling at all tight. I like that; I have a real aversion to clothing that flaps around unnecessarily. If you're a bit self-conscious about any extra pounds it might not be such a good idea because there's nowhere to hide here.
The first thing you notice about these Etxeondo Feather bib shorts is just how light they are. It's not often you say that about a pair of shorts, but our medium-sized pair weighed in at just 125g (just over the manufacturer's claimed 119g). Etxeondo (pronounced et-chay-on-doe) reckon they're the lightest bib shorts on the market and we reckon they're probably right.
These Etxeondo Attaque shorts are excellent but there's just one thing that puts us off and that's the small matter of the £230 price tag.
