WHAT WE LIKE
- The jersey material wicks perspiration well.

- Pant fits snugger than in previous years, not as much extra material to bunch up or snag.
- Jersey cuffs, or lack thereof, fit closely to the wrists and lower arms without feeling constrictive.

- The collarless design of the jersey provides a clean look.

- The closure system of the pant is near chastity belt status. Zipper, buttons, and ratchet system combine for three levels of closure and defend well against wardrobe malfunctions.

- Overall fit of jersey and pant is best in class.

WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE
- Don’t love the Refractor and Wedge colorways. (not shown)

WHAT WE REALLY THINK
The fit of the Thor Core gear is now class-leading. The jersey fits properly without giant sleeves flopping in the wind, and it wicks sweat away from your body. The pant also feels tailored, even with knee braces. Although some of the color choices aren’t our favorite, they could very well be yours, and the fit and performance far outweigh the style opinions of some of our staffers.
