Lusso is known for its UK made cycling kit which is designed for the British rider and good value. The Lusso Air-16 is its lightweight jersey for riding in hot conditions and in the mountains. Sometimes light means a bit flimsy, but this isn’t the case here: it fits well without pocket sag, which can often be a particular weak point.

Front and sides of the Air-16 are made from lightweight mesh
