Jerseys - long sleeve
The P.R.O Fly Evo Pullover is a smock style softshell outer layer best suited to the changeover seasons of spring and autumn, both from a design point of view and also for its weight and warmth levels. Designed with road use in mind, it has a sleek contoured fit and road friendly features, but would work almost equally well for off-road duties too.
Like the Sugoi HotShot II, the HotShot III is a versatile and adaptable long-sleeved jersey. Thanks to its full front zip, fabric, cut and styling, it functions equally well as a training jacket (with a warm base layer underneath), as a cool-weather jersey (on its own or with a light base layer), or as a really cold weather mid-layer (underneath a windproof gilet).
Out the bag and it's quite a surprise to feel how weighty the Rapha Winter Jersey is, made of a heavy merino-rich material it has more the heft of a winter jacket than a jersey, which is no bad thing when it comes to protection against the cold, and once zipped on it feels reassuringly road-rugged and more jersey-like in it's feel and features.
This is no ordinary jersey, this is the Rapha Cross Jersey. Specially designed for the demands of cyclocross with a lightweight merino-rich fabric and a slim structured fit, the Sportwool fabric supposedly both insulates and breathes to keep you comfortable even when flailing through the mud. A padded shoulder for bike carrying run-up luxury and race-specific pockets add to the crossentric design, and for £130 it will clean your bike afterwards as well. Probably.
Gore Bike Wear’s Power Thermo is a straightforward jersey that provides good winter insulation in a stylish, well-made package.
The long sleeve jersey from Rapha is primarily designed as a piece for autumn and winter training and racing use. It is constructed from ‘merino rich’ Sportwool fabric (52% merino/48% polyester), and is designed to have the temperature maintenance and odour resistance properties of merino, together with the higher moisture wicking capacity of synthetics.
The Xenon Thermo Jersey isn’t the most hi-tech article in the Gore lineup but it’s a sound everyday jersey that you can wear as either a mid-layer or an outer layer, depending on conditions.
If you’re looking for a cycling jersey with year round practicality, good looks and a high level of wear comfort, the Signature Training Top from Shutt VR is a good option to consider whether you are a male or female cyclist.
This is a long sleeve, mid-weight garment made from practical and hardwearing polyester that continues Altura's reputation for good quality, affordable performance apparel. Our red/black sample cut a dash through gloomy October skies while efficient moisture management ensures a dry inner climate. That said, extending the scream out loud reflectives around the side panels would be a definite plus for negotiating unlit crossroads.
The H2O is a brand new model from Santini and it has a cunning trick up its sleeve: it’s highly water resistant while still being as breathable as a normal jersey.
