That is how the very cool Miami based brand DS PRO identifies itself, and I couldn’t agree more! The brands goal is to bring out the strong but also feminine side of its clients, making them feel good and look good while wearing the apparel.
Cyclists wants to look stylish and to be confident while riding, and DS PRO has really captured this into their full range of performance outfits, designed just for women. And, as women we want and we deserve to be stylish 😉 Having examined the new DS Pro Floweral Outlines one-piece Cycling suit when it arrived, it was soon time to actually put it on and get out riding into the French Maritime Alps.
The new Cycling suit has a beautiful flower design on a fully black squared polyester material. It has a very classy and elegant design, which is fully compatible with the brand image – elegance and style, with performance sewn in. The sides are slightly more breathable, having a mesh type fabric to aid wicking, moisture control and breathability. It reduces perspiration during the hot summer months, keeping you feel fresh and feminine. On the back of the one-piece there’s two equally spaced pockets, which are large enough to fit a spare tube set into, as well as a couple of gels or bars for the long ride or even a long-distance Triathlon. Yes, it’s a cycling suit and has an extra comfy chamois, but it’s also suitable for you to try out a tri 😉
The panels are well cut and the material is 4 way stretch high quality fabrics, meaning that movement is free and unrestricted. The suit also fits my body in a complimentary way, allowing me to show how great I feel.
This latest DS Pro one-piece also differs slightly from TriSuits that I’ve tested, as it has a slightly more comfortable padding. That’s because it’s not a TriSuit, it’s a cycling suit. The brand have used their expertise in one-piece design to bring this awesome garment to pure cyclists. Typically, a one-piece can bring some unfortunate butt pain when the cycling part of the Tri is more than 3h; however, this certainly and thankfully isn’t the case for this cycling specific model. This is a smart, well thought out and a very comfortable design, with excellent finishing and all aspects of rider comfort dealt with.
Initial impressions are more than favourable, and I can’t wait to try this cycling suit in a combined swim and ride this summer, assuming COVID doesn’t get in the way again. Having a clothing brand out there, that gives us ladies the very best of performance fabric technology, whilst also allowing us to be as stylish as we feel is important. DS Pro have yet again achieved this with their latest one-piece suit for cyclists, and I feel stylish and free when using this great garment that’s filled with style.
Stay sporty and classy!
