Launched today, Kalf says it aims to create stylish high-performance cycling apparel for riders who recognise that the devil is in the detail when it comes to their riding experience. It cites the examples of the method used to join fabric panels for a perfect cut and how a zipper sits when closed. And Kalf says it’s made sure it hits a price point of under £100.
It says its Flux bibshorts have a unique bonded cross-over bridge to the rear of the bibs, while it’s included side pockets in its Transition jersey, so that you can stash your last gasp energy gel there to get you up the last hill before home.
