Reviews Mavic Helium

Mavic Helium

French company Mavic has an acclaimed heritage of manufacturing ground-breaking bicycle wheels. Since 2008, however, they’ve expanded their range into accessories and clothing.

The Helium is the lightest functional shirt in their road cycling range and is designed for use in temperatures above 28°C. The shirt is well-ventilated by a three-quarter length zip, and the ‘skinwick’ material helps with the light and airy feeling.

It’s pleasingly well-made and has three large, and very useful, pockets on the back, along with a small gripper surface to stop the top from riding up.

The styling won’t appeal to everyone, however, with the combination of the white colour and light material resulting in a somewhat see-through shirt. Although the fit across the shoulders is fine, the sizing of the suit is also questionable, with the surprisingly short length likely to repel those of us not that keen on displaying belly flesh
