Why can't I wear a t-shirt for cycling?
For starters, you'll be soaking wet within a few minutes and it will take ages for the material to dry. A cycling jersey (Maillot), is made of technical fabrics with fibres engineered to pull moisture from the skin. They become especially useful on your bike ride because of these features:
Rear Pockets - pockets are used for storage of on ride nutrition, valuables and tools. Some jerseys incorporate a hidden zipped pocket for those small and important possesions (Mobile, ID, Money),
Front Zipper - Most jerseys incorporate a full zipper allowing not only easy removal when in need of toilet duties but also extra ventilation should you begin to overheat on a pronounced climb,
Lightweight - technical fabrics chosen to make most jerseys have a second-skin feel effect,
Clean Cut - Clean cut fabrics are the latest innovation for garments where a clean, seamless or non-slip edge is required.
Cycling jerseys can be found in sleeveless, short sleeves and long sleeves. When choosing a jersey check the material type and which weather conditions it is made for as you can also find them waterproof, windproof or with a warm lining inside (check the Kuum range on www.fasterwear.com for short sleeve wind/water-resistant jersey).
