We’re in the thick of a very British Summer and in all honesty, it’s not been as wet as we first feared. With the baking sun warming our island, we turn for help from those more accustomed to these hot temperatures.
And who is better to deal with the heat than our friends Down Under? Suffice to say, if you’re looking for warm weather cycling kit, you want the reassurance that it’s been developed and tested in warm weather and Hotmix Cycling apparel has been doing just that.
The Australian brand has hit the cycling scene with a bang of bright colour as both their men’s and women’s ranges use vibrancy to the max, something not often seen on the roads of the UK as the classic black bibshort seems to rule the roost.
It’s not just the bold patterns and daring designs that make Hotmix’s kit so eye-catching either, but they defy the cycling norm by creating non-matching kits. With complementing colourways, the patterns vary between jerseys and bibshorts to create a “hot mix” of whatever takes your fancy.
Well, we fancied mixing up their Pink Chevy jersey with their Hibiscus bibshorts and took the set out for a spin this summer.
