The Nuovo range is described as "premium and affordable" by Ribble, with the short-sleeved jerseys priced at £55 and bib shorts £65.
There are male and female versions of each, with the men's jerseys coming in either red or charcoal with a geometric pattern and the women's in light blue or coral pink. The kit comes in "UK sizing" (we'll take that as regular fit, being as us Brits aren't generally renowned for our willowy frames) to give a good balance between comfort, performance and functionality.

The jerseys are made from breathable fabrics and the arm cuffs are seamless and elasticated. You get three rear pockets and reflective piping on all the jerseys. The bib shorts have two-way stretch straps, silicone grippers in the legs and laser cut details, with a 12mm pad made from perforated foam for all-day ride comfort.
More items are to be released in the coming months, so expect jackets, bib longs and long sleeved jerseys to follow as Autumn comes around. We've got our hands on some of this kit already, and will be testing soon. If you're a bit of maverick and don't want to wait for our verdict though, you can browse or buy from the new range on Ribble's website already...
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
