We already know ashmei produce great running kit, understanding the needs of the modern runner they’ve skilfully combined the performance and functionality of superfine merino wool with contemporary style. They also recognise that many runners are adding more strings to their bow as the popularity of triathlon increases exponentially. It seems everyone is in on the act from corporate charity sprint day events right through to the almighty Ironman. Yesterday saw the official launch of ashmei’s cycle and triathlon range, which includes a cycle soft-shell jacket, jersey and bib shorts plus a tri suit.

The cycle jacket and jersey build on their tried and tested running range with a cycle specific cut and pockets. Whilst the new bib shorts and tri suit introduce a superior fabric that has been researched and developed to outperform the market leaders, retaining less water and providing extensive elasticity for compression and a smooth fit with no bulges. They also feature a more discreet foam chamois that won’t get water logged. The decreased weight, increased aerodynamics and comfort will give you a competitive edge and ashmei’s signature styling means you’ll look pretty flashy too.

Available for pre-order now. Will you be one of the first to get your hands on this coveted kit? We’d love to know your thoughts, feel free to chime in, in the comments box below.
