It began in the pub. Like all great ideas, especially those born in Yorkshire. Discussing the documentary American Crit about the achingly cool US crit scene. The skinsuits they wore were all zipped up the back prompting the obvious question, why don’t we ride in jerseys like that? A sketch was done, the zip was ditched.
Our primary aim with the Dessus Aero.21 was to produce a jersey that is faster than what is currently available from other brands. We've achieved this with more than marginal gains but like any claim, we've got to back it up with cold, hard data.
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.
It’s always great to see another rider who has pushed the envelope and broken a record of any kind so imagine our excitement when we found out that not only had smashed the British Everesting record by eighteen minutes but had also chosen to do it in the Dessus Nero Aero Jersey.
