Checking out the revamped (leaner, meaner, lighter) S2-R Performance Jersey and its performance-based, partner in steez, the S2-R Bibshorts by Search and State. You immediately notice the changes between this and the first iteration of their performance jersey. The bibs are noticeably more form-fitting and more comfortable in riding position. I’ve already put in a few rides in the new kit and I’m impressed. Fit’s on point, and the feel/stretch of the new choice of fabric is dialed.

Also received a sack of socks from DeFeet, which is always appreciated. Desperately needed some black, non-denominational feet sleeves to keep a low profile, man in black style so the UCI vampires don’t recognize me when I’m not in my cyclogravelventuregrinding team kit.
