Madison have launched a jersey and bib shorts that are specifically made for cycling indoors, using highly breathable materials and weighing as little as possible to give you a less sweaty turbo session.
Tailored "specifically tailored to meet the needs of indoor training", the Turbo kit has a special anti-bacterial coating that makes it easily washable no matter how much you perspire. The jersey has an open mesh design for maximum breathability, and it's also totally plain to keep the weight as low as possible. It also doesn\t have any pockets because, well... you don't need them on a turbo!
Madison hope to make ultra-sweaty indoor training a thing of the past
The shorts have a custom Italian chamois, have the same anti-bacterial treatment as the jersey and have open mesh straps. they have a 'pre-curved' shape that are tailored for long hours in the saddle, so say Madison.
The Turbo jersey is priced at £44.99, and the shorts will be £66.99. We'll be seeing the new gear in the flesh at the IceBike trade show and will hopefully be able to get our hands on the Turbo kit to try it out soon...
Do you need turbo-specific clothing? Do you need turbo training at all? We'd like to hear your thoughts in the comments, be they positive or positively scathing...
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
