Made right here in Blighty, Shutt Velo Rapide is a small brand that was started by two cycling enthusiasts in 2009. As well as producing its products in the UK, the brand also states that it sources materials from the UK where possible too.
Here are our first impressions of the Women's Signature Jersey:
- It's really eye catching. The bold colours set against the white give the top a vintage feel. I personally love the colour combo but am not so good with white as I seem to muddy it almost as soon as I pop it on!
- The jersey is suitable to a wide range of body types as it is not a snug fit. The size small looks pretty roomy.
- There's a 360º reflective trim on the hem for extra visibility.
- There's three generous, reinforced cargo pockets with an additional fourth zipped waterproof valuables pocket, with ring-pull zip
- The jersey looks quite heavy but the brand assures us that the merino mix fabric is very breathable and wicks away sweat efficiently
