Craft Elite jersey
Craft's Elite range is the clothing line used by their ProTour teams: RadioShack and Rabobank. Here we test the Elite 2012 Jersey, a short sleeve at the pinnacle of jersey design - but cutting edge doesn't come cheap.
This lightweight jersey is Craft’s top-of-the-range offering and it puts in an impressive performance during warm-weather rides. It’s mostly polyester with a dash of Lycra thrown into the mix so it’s stretchy enough that the slim fit is perfectly comfortable. The main fabric (the black stuff) doesn’t get waterlogged easily when you work up a sweat and it dries out quickly if it does get wet, while the grey panels, which are mostly around the back, are a fairly open mesh and they provide plenty of cooling ventilation.
