Pearl Izumi BioViz After spending extensive time studying how car drivers see and react to cyclists, Pearl Izumi came up with the BioViz line of apparel. The idea is that in daylight fluorescent colors convert UV light into additional visible light, drastically increasing the distance in which a cyclist is seen.

But now they've broadened their scope to include the racer crowd. Meet the Showers Pass Spring Classic Jacket, a top that's been rain gear of choice for the Katusha pro cycling team. Among the key features is a lightweight, breathable hardshell that's waterproof and has four-way stretch material in the side panels, which helps provide a snug, aero fit. This weather beater also packs down small enough that it'll easily fit in a jersey pocket when not in use. | Price: $289 | Learn more at https://www.showerspass.com/product-category/jackets-1

At just 80 grams, Panache's V-Lab (or Victory Lab) is the Colorado apparel maker's lightest jersey. It's actually about half the weight of a normal cycling top. The woven fabric means less overall material needed and a hydrophobic treatment repels water (as you can see in the photo), so sweat evaporates quickly. That means even more weight savings. Fit is slim and trim (think skinsuit tight), making this Panache's top-tier race day option for maximum aero advantage. There's also a matching set of bibshorts with all the same features. | Price: jersey $350, bibs $450 (available March 1)
