Twin Six calls their Standard cycling jersey and bibshorts everything you need and nothing you don’t. Honestly, that prettying sums them up perfectly.
The jersey packs the features you want in a soft, comfortable top that breathes and wicks well and offers decent sun protection. Likewise, the shorts are comfortable for all day rides and short workouts.
Zip past the break to see what makes these standard looking items so special…
The jersey uses their Prime T6 fabric with UPF 28+ sun protection. The front has a full zipper that’s easy to operate in both directions with a single hand. That’s key for temp regulation without taking both hands off the bar, and it’ll hold position half way open even when you’re blasting downhill at 40+ mph.
The back has three deep pockets that hold your essentials well enough, and the full circumference silicone waist gripper keeps it from sliding around your waist.
Arm bands are soft and not any more stretchy than the rest of the jersey (which is to say the whole thing has the normal amount of stretch you’d expect from a mesh material). They’re sized normally, so if you have super skinny arms, they’re not likely to provide that aero ski suit look.
The shorts lack any silicone gripper, which I actually kinda like. The wide leg band is soft but holds position just fine, doesn’t become too constrictive and is easy to adjust mid ride as my legs get a pump.
They’re mad with an 8oz micro denier nylon with 8-panel flat seam construction and embroidered details.
A seamless, perforated Italian chamois ain’t fancy looking, but it remained perfectly comfortable on an 8+ hour day riding the Blue Ridge Parkway.
As basic as they are, both pieces are really nice and have worked their way into my regular rotation. Retail is $110 for the jersey, which comes in black, white and gray, and $125 for the bibs (black only. Both are made in the USA.
