Cycling Weekly Verdict

If you’re primarily going to be training indoors over the winter or doing spin classes, these are discrete enough to wear without feeling exposed. They’re less of a faff to get on as they don't have the bibs – and they would be good value for money if you trained 2 to 3 times a week. They wash well and seem to be durable enough to last.
