Finisseur Gravel T-shirt
The cycling clothing company Finisseur has developed a specific line of garments for gravel, the most booming modality in recent times. We have had the opportunity to try one of the garments belonging to this new family, specifically, a practical and stylish T-shirt of which we tell you all the details below.
Finisseur gravel, style and simplicity
The Finisseur Gravel T-shirt is a very technical and at the same time a very special garment. It is designed to offer great performance on a gravel bike. For this reason, it is made of Sensitive fabrics and with a proportion of 73% polyamide and 27% elastane. With this and as we have seen in our test days, the T-shirt manages to fit perfectly to our body on the bike allowing us to be aerodynamic and avoiding air pockets, which when we ride fast on the bike, can be uncomfortable. The fabric is also quick-drying and has the ability to wick sweat outwards, which is always a good thing when you’re exercising. On the other hand, the garment is also designed to be used once we get off the bike. This is why the jersey lacks, for example, a zipper on the chest, as is often seen in conventional jerseys, and also lacks back pockets. This gives it a more “casual” look to be able to go about in it on the streets, outside the context of cycling.
The T-shirt fits really tight, just like a cycling jersey, for example. Aesthetically, however, the garment looks like a T-shirt, a bit tight, but a conventional T-shirt after all. An apparently very simple garment due to its design, although its technical fabrics provide it with great breathability and comfort.
On the move
The sensations offered by this T-shirt are really extraordinary. The elasticity of the fabric, the ability to keep us dry despite the sweat and the freedom of movement that allows us to feel really comfortable on the bike. Once we stop pedalling, it allows us to wear a garment without too much cycling appearance. From that point of view, it is very practical. Its mono colour design also seems to us the most elegant and combinable with any other garment or bike, taking into account that it is available in three colour options.
The comfort, the most valued aspect in a garment of this profile is simply sensational.
We especially like and appreciate the UPF+50 sun protection offered by this Gravel T-shirt, making it ideal for travelling and spending hours in the sun.
Who’s it for?
We believe it is an ideal garment for users who combine gravel and adventure sports. A gravel bike is also a travel and touring bike, where it is common to get off the bike, to walk, stop for lunch or spend a few hours in various places off your bike. In this context, the Gravel T-shirt is a particularly practical and versatile garment.
