Looking good while also remaining comfortable is a key consideration for summer riding, and Yorkshire brand Altura has that nailed with its new Icon range of cycling clothing. It has a refreshing collection of pricetags, too.
In 2022, the Thirsk-hailing outfit is celebrating its 25th anniversary since its launch in 1997, and the nineties influence can be witnessed in the design of the Icon Jersey (£60), which boasts a bold tie dye-esque design on its high-wicking fabric.
There are also mesh panels under the arms and on the back to help with cooling, three rear stash pockets, anti-odour properties and a zipped compartment for valuables.
The men’s Icon Bib Shorts (£70) or women’s Progel Plus Cargo Bibs (£70) meanwhile, both boast exclusive chamois designs, which focus on rider comfort and retaining their anatomical shape ride after ride. They’re also constructed with Italian fabrics, soft-touch bib straps to help prevent chafing and boast reflective print detailing. Completing the summer set are the unisex Icon Cycling Socks (£15) featuring Q-Skin yarn technology to limit bacterial growth.
