Adidas London 2012 Range – ‘26’ Cycling
WSR report was lucky to be able to review the new Adidas "26" Cycling range.
The luminescent jacket is a great idea and made to a high quality. I am a size 10-12 and the jacket I tried was a 12 a little on the snug side around the shoulders, so I would recommend a size above. Great for keeping safe while out and about. It's nice and light to wear and a recommended buy.
The 26 Cycling tops come in all designs and inspire us to get out there, be safe and be fashionable at the same time. Love the designs, the t-shirt felt really good on, kept me nice and cool while exercising.
