Cycling Weekly Verdict

A solid lightweight jersey that performs well with excellent breathability and a figure-hugging fit, but lacks pocket space against some competitors. That said, the value is great compared to other premium offerings which balance an aero fit and cooling - plus the use of recycled materials is always much appreciated. Just remember to go up a size from your usual one.
