With road features but mountain bike pedigree, we test the Troy Lee Ace II Windbreaker to see which side of the fence it falls

Overall Score
A windproof front and breathable back help manage temperature and moisture
That breathable back can be chilly when stopped or riding slow with a tail wind

Although Troy Lee is primarily known as a mountain bike brand, we quickly find this Ace Windbreaker is far better suited to the road. With its windproof front and arms, but open weave back panel we find it breathes really well when riding, but when standing around or slowing right down the windchill can squirrel its way in via that panel. Those conditions are far more likely when offroad, but on the road the wind is almost invariably coming from the front.

A traditional road layout of three pockets across the base of the back also points away from mountain biking, and are very handy for stashing the usual waterproof and food for a long day in the saddle.

With the price coming in under £60 it is definitely worth a look, and is perfect for those fresh spring and autumn days out in the saddle.
