An overcooked right hander this past Sunday saw me spending 20 or so yards sliding across cold, hard tar. Bike's dinged up but fixable; body's scraped and dinged but not broken, fortunately. The Rapha Softshell, Giordana bib tights and Giordana base layer are all, however, ruined.
Am thinking of giving Mavic jackets (Inferno, Equipe, Echapee or Cyclone) and tights (Inferno, Cyclone or Equipe) a whirl.
Your real-world experience with any of these products is much appreciated. They get some good reviews over on the European interwebs.
