HELLY HANSEN Pace Single, £26, www.hellyhansen.com

The Pace series is a collection of technical t-shirts and jerseys made using HH Cool, Helly Hansen’s most advanced fabric for high intensity workouts. It can be worn on its own or as a base layer beneath a jersey or midlayer; the seamless construction means it’s very comfy to wear in any combination.

Most of our female testers love the back design, perfect for sweat-free summer riding and tanning; what’s odd though is that the bust area is unsupported, meaning you can’t wear it without a bra, which ruins that ‘aesthetic’. Jane K
