As spring progresses the days get longer, the passes clear, and the trails and roads become that much more appealing. Rides become more frequent, and longer - all the better to enjoy the heat and sun of the summer. Only too soon fall will arrive, with the temperatures settling back down and the days slowly getting shorter.
The right apparel for each ride will vary as these conditions change, but one piece that’s always a staple is the perfect midweight jersey. You need something comfortable and welcoming, but airy enough to keep you cool and dry when temps heat up. And when you reach the 3-hour mark and still have half the ride ahead, you’ll appreciate the finest details of next-to-skin comfort and anatomic patterning that eliminates bunching and chafing.
7mesh Jerseys reflect a forward approach to fabric selection and construction detail. Conventional jerseys use knit polyesters with high elastane content to provide high stretch and a forgiving fit, with less required patterning effort. Unfortunately elastane is very hydrophilic, meaning it absorbs and holds a large amount of water. These jerseys become heavy, breathe poorly, and dry slowly, resulting in significant added weight and rider discomfort.
The Britannia Women’s Jersey is ready for everything from your daily cruise to your longest epic rides. It’s constructed from 100% polyester elastane-free knit, keeping you dry and light, and its soft brushed surface and mechanical stretch ensure a close and comfortable fit. The Britannia is fully equipped with our 5-pocket system, buttonhole passthroughs for cables, and headphone loops. Advanced patterning optimizes fit in the riding position, and the textured inner mechanically wicks moisture away to facilitate evaporation.
