Coming with the iconic three stripes in bright yellow, much needed on an otherwise dark design, the long-sleeve summer AdiStar is said to give the comfort of a stage race jersey and the aerodynamic efficiency of a skinsuit.

On test, the lightweight mixture of the MITI, polyamide and elastane one-piece ‘Bolero' fabric was figure-hugging, yet still comfortable and unrestrictive.

Thanks to its long sleeves, we were tempted to pay no heed to the summer element of the jersey and wear it on cooler days. In reality, anything under 15°C and we still felt the chill.
