Cycling Weekly Verdict

Leaving aside the argument about whether you actually need specific kit for it, if you spend a lot of time riding indoors and want to do it in a well-performing, nice-looking jersey rather than an old T-shirt or base layer, I can recommend the Ido.

The Ido jersey was created to be, according to the new British company, a highly technical jersey that is “light and breathable, that helps you perform and is comfortable with no concession to elegance. Looking good is feeling good.” Ido also makes a pair of indoor-specific bib shorts and for the moment those two garments (in men's and women's sizes) are all that's in the range.

Before we look at whether or not Ido succeeds in its aims, I’m just going to head off the ‘do you need indoor-specific clothing?’ debate and link to this feature, which looks at the pros and cons and leaves you to make up your own mind. Just like helmets, disc brakes, shaving your legs or going vegan it’s your decision.
