Purveyors of some of the most attractive kit around, Morvélo have carved out a reputation for themselves as pioneers of smart-looking kit since they formed in 2009. Very few brands can claim to have classic-looking jerseys, floral designs and a ‘blood brothers’ line made to look like veins all in the same collection – but Morvélo certainly aren’t most brands.
The kit we have here is called ‘Shatter’, and it won’t take a genius to figure out why. It’s a pretty smart way to infuse a flash of colour into your kit without looking as garish as a second-tier Italian pro team, and will appeal to traditionalists and progressives alike. The Shatter design is available in both summer and winter kit.
The Shatter Thermoactive Jersey is a long-sleeve piece and works well on its own in cool conditions, as a mid-layer when it’s really cold, or under a gilet when you’re not quite sure. It’s made from a ‘ThermoActive’ polyester, which is essentially a brushed fabric with a fleecy lining to lock in warmth, but it’s also plenty breathable for when the pace and temperature rises.
