The 2018 Nest Cycling kit celebrates the 8-year anniversary of Nest with a matching jersey, bib, vest, baselayer, and arm warmers. The motif is derived from the shape of the number 8 and traditional Japanese "seigaiha" pattern (which translates to blue wave.) Seigaiha signifies good luck, but also power and resilience.
Much like the ocean's waves, details are visible up close, but subtly fade when seen from a distance. From afar, the Wave bibs presents rich, solid colors, with a burst of color on the cuffs. Up close, a dynamic interplay of subtly thinning arches and layered concentric circles -- similar to many of Nest's optical and wireless designs -- creates an eloquent visage.
The bibs are offered in two refined color palettes this year: Ocean Teal with muted grey and Evergreen with navy blue. For women interested in regular shorts (not bibs with straps) please place your order, than email us afterward with your request.
Designed by a former industrial designer from Nest, the Wave bib is a stylish nod to the company, and our passion for cycling.
♦ Optimal Fabrics: best-in-class lycra tuned for compression, comfort, and durability.
♦ Premium Chamois: Top-of-the-line Road Performance Compact model from CyTech, the global leader in chamois manufacturing. Gender specific, multi-density padding, antimicrobial properties, and anatomical design for unparalleled comfort over long rides.
♦ Dyed Panels: long-lasting, dyed navy blue panels with minimal fading when stretched, washed, or after prolonged sun exposure.
♦ Extra-wide Straps: wider, mesh straps prevent hot spots, shifting, and discomfort.
♦ Extended Cuff: 7.5cm compression cuffs with silicone grippers provide gentle compression, and prevent movement.
♦ Discreet Branding: unlike many other company kits, Wave won't make you a moving billboard on the morning commute, or weekend ride.
All apparel pieces will be custom crafted in a limited-edition run for Nest employees, and their friends and family. The deadline for orders is midnight PST on Sunday, 10/21/18, with delivery in early December.
All sales are final due to the nature of custom orders, but we will make every effort to accommodate all requests, including size changes. Our goal is to make you happy in your new kit!
Sizing will be the same as last year's apparel. As such, please order the same size as last year. If this is your first time ordering kit with us, please refer to the charts below.
If you're on the border of sizes, select the next size up for a roomier "club" fit, or one size down for a tighter "race" fit.
