Ribble Cycles expands again with the release of its Nuovo clothing range

Ribble Cycles has released a new range of clothing to accompany its bikes

Ribble has announced the release of its brand new, own brand Nuovo clothing range, a collection of both affordable and premium cycling apparel.

The range has both male and female lines of the kit, which, for the time being will consist of both jerseys and shorts, but the company says more items will be released in the coming months.

The kit is designed in the UK, and Ribble say it's the perfect balance of comfort, performance and functionality.

The short-sleeve jersey is made from a breathable fabric that should allow moisture to be wicked away quickly, while the arm cuffs are made from an elasticated but seamless material that should, Ribble say, keep them in place.

There are three reinforced rear pockets, which have reflective piping for a bit of added safety.

The women's collection's come in a coral and peppermint colour while the men's range are red and charcoal grey, the jersey costs £55.

The matching bib-shorts are a tad more expensive, coming in at £65, but have been designed to be worn alongside the jersey.

Again, Ribble say that it's breathable fabric which should keep stuck to the body. Unlike the jersey's arms, the cuffs of the legs have silicon grippers to help stick them in place.

The back of the bibs is a perforated mesh panel for added breathability.

Like with its bikes, Ribble claims that the "cyclist are at the centre of its design process" and it has "sourced the best materials to help find the balance between comfort and performance".

Both items are now available on Ribble's site to buy.
