There’s definitely an interest in ‘going light’ when carrying kit on your bike. Many riders are looking at options when choosing between a backpack or stashing items on your body and bike.
There are plenty of options out there but we feel we’ve hit on a winner with the Alpinestars Paragon vest. It’s a brand that keeps producing some winning designs.
With the need for additional back protection as well as storage, this vest is ideal for stage racing or a few hours on the uplift. It’s good to get storage away from your shorts (where they can hinder comfort as well as pedalling) and onto your torso with strategically placed pockets. Back protection needs to be certified yet be not obtrusive and cause discomfort.
