Maap Allied Pro Air Jersey review

Quick wicking and highly breathable jersey, but with a very tight cut on the hem of the sleeves

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Allied Pro Air Jersey is a hot weather jersey offering excellent breathability, while not skimping on the supportiveness of the rear pockets. It also has an SPF rating of 50+, which not all ultra-lightweight jerseys do. We found the sleeve hems to be disproportionately tight around the arms (at 177cm / 68kg wearing a size small), but for skinnier armed cyclists, this shouldn’t present too much of an issue.
