Cycling Jerseys Available Online & Instore
Cycling jerseys are designed to meet the specific needs of cyclists, and as such are an important piece of equipment that will greatly improve your riding experience. Different forms of cycling have their own specific requirements, and as such the cycling jerseys on offer are designed to accomodate this.
Road Cycling Jerseys
Road cyclists spend long periods out on the road, and generally want to be as aerodynamic and low weight as possible. The road jersey is generally a lightweight, breathable knit that promotes air flow, whilst acting to wick moisture away from the skin to be absorbed in the atmosphere. The benefit here is the jersey helps to keep the rider cool, as well as preventing the build up of sweat on the front or back, that then becomes cold with wind chill if it sits within the garment. The best cycling jerseys will have pockets in the back for practical storage of things like food, spares, money etc; as well rubber stoppers around the hems to keep the garment in place. Bicycle jerseys are also slightly longer in the back to keep the rider covered when they are stretched out in a riding position on the bike. Jerseys are also either full length, or half zip so the rider can let in some more air if over heating.
Mountain Biking Jerseys
Competitive cross country racers will wear similar jerseys to road riders. Recreational riders and downhill riders will often wear baggier jerseys in more of a motocross style cut.
As the bicycle commuter is often sharing space with traffic, commuter bicycle jerseys often has a greater focus on visibility. Bright colours and reflective panels help the rider be easily seen while they are out on the road. Comfort also tends to be more of a focus than speed, so jerseys are often of a more relaxed cut.
