Louis Garneau Factory Short Sleeve Cycling Jersey
Cycling Jerseys
– Cycling jerseys are made of spandex or other form fitting materials to reduce drag when you ride.  However, this doesn’t mean that you will need to squeeze yourself into a skin tight top covered in corporate logos just for a trip to the store.  Many brands offer cycling jerseys that look and feel very much like regular T–shirts and tops but include a few strategically placed pockets and zippers.  Their fabrics enhance performance by wicking away sweat to keep you drier.

Specific features for cycling jerseys include:

  • Stand up collar to shade your neck in summer (or seal in body heat in cool weather).
  • Front zipper for ventilation when your temperature rises.
  • Shoulders cut wider for arms–forward comfort.
  • Sleeves specially shaped for forward lean.
  • Back pockets for easy on–the–go access.
  • Form–fitting cut to reduce flapping.
  • Longer cut in back for coverage when riding.
  • Reflective trim or highlights for night riding.
