The name may not be so known in the US, but you've seen it on Alberto Contador for several seasons, and the technical clothing on display at the Sportful apparel booth was a showcase of the latest jackets, jerseys and bibshorts from the Italian brand.
When I was asked by PEZ to write a review of the new Velocite Syn I was not particularly receptive to the idea, but not because I don’t like the bike.
