Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Rapha + Ourdoor Voices sports bra is a good option for road riding, but it's not designed to offer enough support for anything higher impact such as spinning, mountain biking or any running or plyometric work you may do in the gym to support your training. It's quick drying, but I'm still waiting for a brand to produce a sports bra that dries quickly and offers more support.

Sports bras are perhaps the most disappointing category for women who cycle. There are so many brands creating beautiful, lightweight jerseys and winter layers which wick sweat away - but none able to create a sports bra carrying the same properties, meaning the underlayer undermines the effectiveness of the outer in almost all conditions.
