Anyone who thinks there's no room for palm fronds on race cut, competitive minded cycling kits has clearly never been paying attention to the annual February exodus from Europe to Qatar during which Belgians ride around in the subtropical desert blowing the peloton apart in crosswinds. Attaquer's Palms Kit proves that either the Australian manufacturer has been paying attention to the migratory habits of skinny Europeans with funny tan lines or someone at the firm has an uncle with a vested interest in the present superfood trend touting the benefits of the acai palm's fruit.

It's also dimpled throughout and has extended sleeves and legs, both of which are reminiscent of the aerodynamic trend sweeping the peloton with the same alacrity that acai has swept the health foods aisle, helping you hang on if you suddenly find yourself with a gap off the front.
