Cycling Jerseys Here is a little secret that not every rider knows – You don’t need to wear a cycling jersey to ride a bike. Why then should you buy one? Simple answer: Comfort.
Ride With Me
Cycling jerseys are made of moisture moving fabrics that will pull perspiration off your body and move it to the outside of the garment where it can evaporate quickly. Additionally, cycling jerseys are cut to follow the natural lines of your body while riding, they use grippers to stay in place as you move around the bicycle and many options also have pockets to help you carry things like food, phones, or tools. A lot of options also include some reflective features making you more visible while out on the road. All together these features make you more comfortable and safer on your bike. More great news! - Cycling clothing is no longer all skin tight. Jerseys are now made in every conceivable fit, ensuring you can find one that feels good. When trying on a jersey, consider a few things. First, when standing bolt upright, the jersey will feel short in the front and long in the back. It’s important to lean over a bit and try to replicate your cycling position. If the jersey still feel too short/long it is probably a good idea to try a new size or fit. Second, from totally synthetic to purely natural, and every combination in between, jerseys use different materials to create something that is functional and comfortable. Costs will vary widely based on the material and complexity of the construction.
