It's just over a year since the launch of the Dessus Aero Jersey and none of us could have predicted how rocky 2020 was going to be. It has, however, been a year with plenty of time for riding and testing kit to its limits. Every inch of thousands of miles of testing has come together to create kit that performs far beyond expectations in every department. Introducing first, the Dessus Aero.21 Jersey.
An improved fit with an added silicone grippper and redesigned integrated rear pockets mean that the Dessus Aero.21 has tested with the cutting edge technology at Body Rocket to be faster than the market-leading, grand tour winning aero jersey and 8-16w faster than a standard cycling jersey.
"The Dessus jersey design is less affected by contents in the pockets, which can save 5-10w" - Body Rocket
Data aside, we know that riding a bike isn't all about being fast, you need to look good while you're doing it which is why we teamed up with Charlotte Jarps on the visual front. Available in three colourways: Rosso, Nero and Azul, the Dessus Aero.21 serves up style in spades with a series of perfectly paired pantone colours. Perfect for any style whether you prefer a hot crimson and coral, cool electric blue or a stealthy black with a crimson tinge.
Th right-hand sleeve of each Aero.21 jersey gives a nod to its roots, the roads on which it has seen savage testing. The pattern shows the topographic contours of the Wharfe Valley, Yorkshire, one of the most beautiful and ruthless areas of the UK and the home roads of countless world-class riders both on- and off-road.
Never ones to settle, we have also developed a premium addition to our bib shorts range to go alongside our five-star rated Pro Bib Shorts. The Dessus Fondista are manufactured in Italy, arguably the home of cycling and certainly the spiritual home of the world's finest fabric and fashion.
The Fondista Bib Shorts are constructed from high quality truly black fibre fabric with laser-cut seamless grippers. A world class Dolomiti long distance chamois means that you will be seated in utmost comfort whether you're flying around final corner before the line or cresting the brow of yet another alpine pass.
Topped off with reflective graphics, you're certain to be seen both in headlights on the road and under the floodlights of an evening criterium. Great for safety and, when you look this good, you want to be seen.
That wraps up launch No.1 for Dessus' 2021 range, just in time for Christmas, don't forget that if you're buying for someone else we've got gift cards so you can leave sizing to your loved ones.
Launch No.2 is in the works with some exciting additions, keep your eye out in the run up to Spring.
