Le Col Indoor Training Shorts review

Classy but pricey shorts built for indoor training

Cycling Weekly Verdict

Sometimes it’s only when you discover the solution you realise there was a problem and that is the case with the Le Col Indoor Training shorts. Comfort and moisture management is essential for indoor training and they have made two weeks of quarantine indoor training more productive than they would otherwise have been. Even if you limit your indoor sessions to poor weather these shorts are a sound investment.

The British company is one of a number of premium brands to have launched clothing optimised for use on the turbo, partnering with Wahoo, to provide these shorts with a distinctive splash of colour.
