The characteristics of cycling jerseys
There are 3 levels of adjustment, 3 styles of cut, in the bike jerseys: T-shirt style, semi-fit and pro-fit (the most tight). The more the jersey is tight, the more aerodynamic it is and the faster it will expel sweat.
Some guidelines to help you in your jersey selection
A cyclist riding a hybrid bike can settle for a T-shirt style jersey, such as the RPM jersey by sugoi. All made of breathable and lightweight synthetic fabrics, they meet the aeration level sought after by hybrid bike riders.
A cyclist looking for performance, such as a road bike cyclist might be interested in a more fitted pro-fit cut. Very tight, this type of jersey prevents taking in the wind, further reducing friction. This type of jersey also uses different fabrics to meet even more the needs of the cyclist: net under the armpits to let evacuate perspiration and more stretchy fabric at the shoulders to allow the articulation of movements in all axes.
The more quality the jerseys are, the more they are made of thin fabrics for more breathability. Some jerseys, such as the RH + Maestro, offer more compression and are equipped with a zippered pocket that is impervious to perspiration for personal effects.
The majority of our road jerseys are equipped with three back pockets to put your water bottle, money, spare tube and several other essentials. When trying on cycling jerseys, it is important to take the position you adopt on your bike, because the bike clothes are cut so that they are longer back and shorter forwards to promote freedom of movement and movement. comfort when you are bending over your bike.
