The latest entrant onto the apparel market hoping to win over the riding scene with high-performance apparel at attractive prices is Rocday. We’ve taken a few key pieces from their collection onto the trails to make up our own mind.
Rocday WOOD Jersey
Loosely cut, the long-sleeved WOOD Jersey is designed to be worn in mild temperatures. Nicely understated in design, the production appears to a high quality with slightly tailored sleeves that are longer than a regular top to ensure your wrists keep covered while you ride. As the temperature drops the WOOD Jersey teams brilliantly with a thermal base layer underneath. It has a sewn-in piece of fabric with which to wipe your goggles and retails at the very fair price of € 35.90.
Rocday ROC Shorts
Compared to the blue-green colourway of the WOOD Jersey, the ROC Shorts are quite understated so will basically match any jersey in your wardrobe. The robust-looking 4-way stretch material is comfortable and water-resistant. The shorts have a satisfying length, and can be worn with or without knee pads. They are tightened with Velcro at the bottoms and have enough space to fit large knee protectors underneath. The waist is also tightened with a generous Velcro buckle that keeps the shorts secure. To protect your phone and other essentials from mud and rain, the deep pockets have watertight zips. There are no inner shorts with a chamois inside the ROC Shorts, so you’ll have to wear those separately. Coming in either dark gray or dark blue, the shorts retail at € 89.90.
Rocday ELEMENT Gloves
The ELEMENT gloves are the golden middle ground in Rocday’s glove collection. Alongside the ultra lightweight FLOW gloves and the warmer EVO model, the ELEMENT gloves are designed to be the classic all-rounder. The additional terry cloth insert is on hand (literally) for you to wipe sweat out of your face. These gloves come in three colours and cash in at € 33.90.
This Rocday outfit cuts a fine figure on the trails. And while none of the parts offer anything groundbreaking, they’re solidly made with no weaknesses to show. In terms of pricing, Rocday is definitely competitive and leverage superb value for money.
