It’s fair to say the cycling kit market is full to overflowing – cyclists are literally spoiled for choice when it comes to purchasing new gear and planning what to wear on a ride. All manner of colours, styles, fabrics, designs, fit and finish proliferate the packed market – it certainly takes a unique point of difference to stand out from the crowd.
This has certainly been the case while recently riding the Prism range from Aussie-based kit company Cinettica. Available in either a black background with white prisms, or vice versa, the Prism design is based on the premise of the flat surfaces of a prism portraying speed and light.
A ‘Second Skin’
Made with top-quality Italian fabrics, the lightweight jersey slipped on to firmly and comfortably to offer a race cut feel. It offered free arm and upper body movement and no noticeable restriction while both preparing for the ride and underway.
Well cut and true to size (as tested in medium), the jersey retained is shape, fit and comfort. As it was a cooler day, a thick base layer was underneath, and what we particularly noticed was the Prism jersey’s excellent breathability and moisture wicking properties, particularly on a local 3km climb.
To the Cinettica Prism knicks and these are finished in classic black with the matching white Prism design on the lower right leg. Firm in fit, they offer a slick, smooth and very professional finish. The knicks feature reflective strips on rear leg seams and a stylish Cinettica logo.
To the all-important chamois and this is true to the theme and inspiration of the brand, an Italian Cytech chamois for all-day comfort & breathability.
After several big days out on road – along with several hard-core MTB trips – the Cinettica knicks have proved faultless. They provide a firm and comfortable fit, no chafing, and retain shape and snugness right through the day.
