Primal's new HT.A range is designed for all day casual office use as well as including technical cycling-specific features

Performance cycling clothing brand Primal has launched a new range of active, urban lifestyle wear.

Called HT.A, it ties in with the growing trend to mix technical cycling features into clothing which is as good to wear for the commute as it is all day in a casual office environment or for off-bike leisure.

The range includes clothing for men and women.
