All of my bike accessories are already Specialized, but I've never splashed out on buying my own Specialized cycling kit.
I happen to have met Olivia the Brand Manager for Women at Specialized UK on the Bella Velo rides and she kindly surprised me in June with this Specialized ambassadors outfit.
|I had to take the selfie to capture my excitement, it doesn't quite do it justice, but if you look closely you'll see that I dropped everything in the kitchen to try on this outfit straight away!|
From the moment I started trying it on, I could tell that this was good quality kit and understand why people pay the price for this kit. It is just so soft, it doesn't cut into love handles or upper thighs, it just feels great. This might be a strange thing for me to say and also very cringy, but you feel like a women! Oooh I said it!
The cycling tights are my favourite, it is awesome bib shorts with a magnet fastening on the back which allows you to go to the ladies without taking all of your clothes off. You literally just drop your tights and go.
Below is a video from Specialized demonstrating how it works!
The padding is thin and ergonomically shaped for the best comfort.

The sleeves of the jersey and legs of the tights both have base layer material finishes which doesn't cut into your skin and doesn't ride up either as it has nicely spaced out elastic on the inside.
|Same soft finishes on the legs|
The back of the cycling top has 3 pockets, including a waterproof zipped pocket.
|If you look closely you can see the magnet dropper of the bib shorts underneath my top.|
I love this outfit even though it has pink it. :-) The bib shorts is a must!
