I have been wearing Voler Cycling Apparel on and off since about 2003 when I started racing and have always liked their products.
They always fit my body shape well and I have Voler kits from 10 plus years ago that still have the chamois in place and still are comfortable. This season, I have been training and racing in Voler’s Custom FS Pro Bib Shorts and FS Pro Jersey on the SoCalCycling.com Elite Team.
I have been riding almost exclusively in the FS Pro Bib Shorts and FS Pro Jersey this season, so I have had quite a bit of saddle time wearing them. From 8 hour rides in the mountains to my local criterium practice, the Voler kits have performed flawlessly. On longer rides, the HP Chamois has kept me cool and comfortable for hours.
Voler Cycling Apparel elaborates on the FS Pro Collection as “FS Pro is our Grand Tour collection equally well suited for racing or long days in the saddle. The Flat Seam construction is perfect for adding a new element to your design. With multiple thread colors to choose from you can give your kits a unique and professional look. Available in a wide range of garments, FS Pro is a great choice for competitive teams or clubs looking for an upgraded kit.”
The FS Pro Short Sleeve Jersey is full zip and is fairly thin on the back, so it is good for cooling on hotter days.
The FS Pro Bib Short straps are wide so they don’t dig into my shoulders while I’m riding and the wide textured Power Grips keep the shorts from riding up on my legs.
The overall fit is form fitting enough to race in, but not so tight as to be too uncomfortable for longer rides. The front of the bibs also comes rather low which is perfect for facilitating mid-ride (or race) nature breaks.
There are also three large pockets in the FS Pro Short Sleeve Jersey with enough room to carry enough food for 100 mile road races. I have had a lot of time to ride in Voler clothing over the years and have always enjoyed how they fit and performed. Their new men’s FS Pro bibs and FS Pro jerseys are more great fitting and comfortable products from Voler. Whether you are a serious racer or a recreational rider, these kits will serve you well.
