Comparing the Bike Jersey and the Ski Jersey


Well, there they are!  And seriously, what you're looking at is the product of a ton of hours of phone calls, design work, etc.  Even with great software like photoshop (where you can scrap up an image that looks more or less exactly what you want the final product to look like), you still have to help the professionals convert your idea into their format...and there are always a couple hiccups along the way.


Well, all that's done now and we're pretty happy with our bike and ski kit.  I would have liked to throw in a picture of the "Lime" style suit as well, but I don't have one of those laying around my house (they sell quickly...as do all things of beauty).

Anyway, in my ever present quest to find something to write an article about, I thought it might be fun to do a side by side comparison of our marvelous ski and bike suits.  Although they're inherently similar, I really do have to admit that the bike kit has some advances that really make it stand out.  One thing that's great is that V cut that tapers towards the waist (it's slimming, even on a fat guy like me).  Also, the two little CyclovaXC shields on the back are good because they suggest eyes (just like the camouflage of certain jungle frogs) so predators are much less likely to sneak up from behind and pounce on you.

The lighter green up in the shoulder area was a good call too.  You notice it as you're out riding or whatever (you glance over at your shoulder and, seeing the cheery green, you accelerate!).

Amazingly, this is actually the 4th suit that Frank and I have collaborated on and the 1st bike kit.  Hopefully we can take a break for a little while (although I know that people want vests...so we'll see what we can do about that).  For now, I just want to think about riding for a little while.
