We put Bontrager's high-vis summer jersey through its paces

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Bontrager Velocis Halo jersey is a good, lightweight, aerodynamuc summer jersey, with clever high-vis technology that does a great job of helping you be seen after dark. However, this added visibility adds an awful lot to the price tag, and it's such a light jersey that you're not going to be using it after dark too often anyway. The standard Velocis jersey seems like a much more sensible investment.
