Poc have amassed a huge following since their move into the road bike market thanks to a combination of superb styling and pro-level kit. Their new Fondo range comes in at a lower price than the standard road garb, but aims to still offer a similar level of functionality.
Style-wise, you can’t knock the jacket at all. The dark blue colour combined with white Poc logos is attractive and understated, and unlike their AVIP road range will probably appeal to most riders rather than dividing opinion.
On first glance, the Fondo Rain Jacket looks pretty simple, with the navy blue colour scheme attractive yet understated enough to please almost anyone. It’s very difficult to go wrong with navy. The confusing thing is that it looks almost exactly the same as Poc’s Raceday rain jacket which is also navy, although they call it navy black rather than navy blue. That’s cleared that up, then.
