Is The Adidas And Peloton Apparel Line Any Good?

Two of the biggest names in fitness have worked together to create a 19-piece capsule collection which celebrates the digital fitness community.

The spring/summer 22 range is available to buy now on the Peloton and Adidas websites, as well as select Adidas stores in the UK, US, Canada and Germany. It’s made up of workout wear as well as unisex recovery pieces. While this is the third collection released by the fitness giants, it’s the first with gym wear staples.

For women, there’s a choice of cropped or long workout vest (both £28), as well as a sports bra (£38) and leggings (£60), while men can pair a workout T-shirt with shorts (both £38). The workout wear features Adidas’s HEAT.RDY tech – a combination of materials, cuts and moisture-wicking treatments which combine to keep you cooler while you work up a sweat.

We got our hands on the women’s workout apparel and put the leggings, bra and vest through their paces in a spin class. The bra was tight yet comfortable, and I felt like there was minimal breast movement – the whole point of a sports bra after all.

The leggings were spot on: they didn’t budge and there was no gathering at the crotch – a great fit overall. The high waist also kept everything smooth and tucked in. I was a fan of the vest, although the double layering made it quite thick and warm, so it didn’t stay on for long. 

I certainly couldn’t fault the overall quality. I feared the kit might feel like a bit of a knock-off, but it really isn’t. It’s the Adidas quality we know and love, with a Peloton touch.

The shorts, leggings and bra sport a geometric-pattern which may feel familiar to Peloton owners, as the connected spin bike brand’s graphics and icons served as inspiration for the designers.

The relaxed recovery wear spans a crewneck sweatshirt (£63) and pair of joggers (£60) which are ideal for warm-ups and warm-downs, as well as a stylish bomber jacket (£78).

We’re pleased to report the collection is also available in an inclusive range of sizes (Adidas is one of our favourite plus-size running wear brands).
