Sombrio

  • Review by Courtney Steen // Photos by Brandon Turman When first introduced to the Sombrio Vista jersey and shorts, I swooned and hoped to have the opportunity to check them out further. I love the colors, and I can’t lie about also loving that they glow in the dark. That is some good ol’ fashi...

  • Review by Courtney Steen // Photos by Brandon Turman "That's it!" I had enough of trying to get by in the rain with a hand-me-down rain jacket that just wasn’t cutting it. On more than one occasion I missed rides because it was more than sprinkling out and I knew my jacket wouldn't suffice - i...

  • by Kevin Shiramizu Sombrio has been around for a long time, so obviously they must be doing something right with their clothing. I've had a pair of shorts from them for several years now and they have lasted really well. They were hand-me-downs from a friend, and after my time in them, they go...

  • by AJ Barlas Roughly 10 years ago, a couple of Australian rippers showed up to races with a unique looking, bicycle-specific shoe on their feet - something that hadn't been seen before. Back then the shoe of choice for flat pedal riders was often the Vans Caballero, at least Down Under anyway,...

  • The Good:

    Cool colors

    The Bad:

    cool colors?

    Overall Review: If you are looking for a subtle bike jersey this is a good choice. The jersey comes with black w/ pink graphics and Purple w/ yellow graphics. Although the colorways are a bit odd the jerseys is nice and subtle anddoesn'tlook like you ride for Nascar. The Sombrio logo is done in a retro 90’s ...

  • The Good:

    I really like Sombrio in general and the stretchy materials that they use throughout most of their lineup. The great thing about these short is that you can ride in the them and then also wear them on the street and not look like a total goof. They are really comfortable and you really notice the stretch in the fabric. They work well on hot days and breathe quite well. Belt buckles are really nice and the fit is true. I usually wear a 30-32 and the medium fits me perfectly.

    The Bad:

    Only a minor issue but I wish the side pockets had a zipper. Also wish the back of the shorts wasnt white as after one muddy ride its hard to keep that white section clean.

    Overall Review: Overall the shorts are great. They work well on the bike and you can wear them on the street. The biggest thing I like about these is the comfortable and stretchy material they are made of, they breathe really well and you notice the stretch when riding. Would highly recommend these shorts.
