We were forced to check the price tag of Broken Riders t-shirt because, having experienced its luxurious Bamboo fabric first, we assumed it was going to be a pricey affair. This felt the softest and finest fabric of the t-shirts we looked at.
Bamboo fabric – as we’ve found out cycling EVERYWHERE in this t-shirt, to work, to the gym (in the gym), to the pub – is a natural fibre with a sublime soft feel, and more importantly for a cycling t-shirt had amazing wicking and antimicrobial qualities.
It was cut well, long enough to keep my kidneys warm and everything out of sight. The stretch in the fabric added that extra level of comfort and I liked the way that after a couple of washes I wasn’t left with obvious dents that so often appear in the chest area. Size small fitted my size 10 frame perfectly.
Verdict: Amazing value, simple style and super soft fabric that delivers. This is our favourite from the test!
Favourite feature: I’m a bamboo fabric convert, that says it all
