Cycling jersey – key garment
Cycling jersey is a specialized jersey for cycling. Cycling jerseys come in many forms and colors, it all depends on current fashion trends. They are common though for men and women, and they can be worn independent on type of cycling. A lot of people cycle in their t-shirts and that is perfectly fine, but once they try cycling in a cycling jersey, rarely who will change back. And that is thanks to its special features:
- Material – they are made of technical materials that are designed to wick moisture away from the skin, keeping the cyclist dry, cool and ultimately more comfortable. They can also be made from organic fibers like merino wool and cellulose, as well as recycled materials, all with the same wicking quality.
- Design – it is cut longer in the back, so that it covers your lower back when you’re stretched out on your bike. The zipper runs long in the front allowing for ventilation. The fit should be snug to avoid air resistance. There are usually three pockets in the back. They are strategically positioned there for couple of reasons. They keep things inside once you lean forward. Some may have zippers, which is especially useful for your keys, money and other loose valuables. Pockets can replace a backpack, in the middle one it is easy to stash a cycling jacket or a bike pump; in the right one, if you are right-handed, some snacks and your phone and the left is then for some tools and a bike tube. You shouldn’t overload, think saddle bag instead.
