The notion of indoor-specific cycling gear has always been met by a universal guffaw. Who needs it, right? After all, regular cycling clothing is perfectly adequate for the indoor job at hand. Over the past 12 months, the entire Cyclingnews tech team has taken to riding indoors in an effort to stay fit and sane - and we've naturally looked in depth at the pros and cons of the best indoor cycling clothing

Of all the brands, however, it's Nopinz that has filled this niche like no other. In fact, I recently reviewed its premium Subzero race suit and came away impressed by what it offers the racer thanks to a series of specially designed pockets and cooler packs to promote better performance and comfort. While the race suit is a pricey proposition Nopinz also offers a more affordable option - the Subzero indoor shorts.
