WHAT IT IS

As one of the newest motocross gear brands to hit the sport, Sedici is Cycle Gear’s exclusive off-road line of riding gear. The Italian inspired brand features the Podio line as their greatest offering of pants, jerseys and gloves in their 2016 lineup to go along with the Lavori line. Sedici also offers a Lavori line of pants and jerseys specifically cut for women, and two more separate lines of jerseys called the Avanti line and the Ventilatore line allowing for riders to mix and match whatever style of pant, jersey and glove they like. This 2016 line of riding gear marks Sedici’s very first go at throwing their hat into the ring of off-road gear brands, as they have only been known for their presence in the on-road community of motorcycling.

HITS

  • The Podio line of pants fit very well – especially with the tapered legs that won’t bunch up inside your boots.
  • The Podio jersey is extremely light and features a ton of ventilation all through the arms and back of the jersey.
  • Sedici went with the minimalistic approach for their line of Lavori gloves, which is something that we prefer when choosing a pair of gloves.
  • The pants feature the simple ratchet system around the waist. Nothing fancy, but always affective.
  • The pants also feature a number of panels that stretch to ensure a comfortable fit.
  • The jersey comes in two different distinct color ways.
  • The jersey is a little longer than some other brands, which aids in continuously keeping the jersey tucked into the pants.
  • The gloves are slip-on, but are very easy to get around your hand.
  • We really like the option to mix and match jerseys and pants.
  • We like how the inner lining of the pants doesn’t get stuck on your knee braces as you take them off.

MISSES

  • Although we like the longer jersey, some riders may not if they prefer their jersey to be untucked in the back.
  • The collar on the Podio and Ventilatore jerseys are really big, so the pads on a chest protector could rub on the sides of your neck too much causing irritation.
  • Even though the pants fit well, the knees felt a little big even with knee braces on underneath.
  • The graphics on the Podio jersey were a little too loud for our taste.
  • The helmet actually fit well, but it was a tight squeeze to get it around our head.

THE VERDICT

Sedidi’s off-road gear features some rather impressive characteristics for an entry level line of riding gear. Not to mention the prices are extremely cost-effective for anyone especially after buying a near $10,000 dirt bike. With X-Games Gold medalist Lance Coury wearing the gear for 2016, and aiding in the brand’s development, Sedici is a brand on the rise that many should consider when searching for a new set of gear.
