We're aware that searching for the right short sleeve jersey can be a little overwhelming. But we also know that by narrowing down the most important features your cycling tops must possess, the quest can be successful. That's exactly what Craft took into consideration when it designed the new Performance Jersey. It combined the elements that make a jersey great, without the unnecessary, and wrapped them into a single package. The result is a jersey with a lightweight and breathable paneling design, ample storage and ventilation, with a price that won't empty your wallet.
The Performance Jersey was constructed from several of Craft's technical fabrics. The majority of the paneling is C167, a wicking elastic fabric that's woven with a tetra-channeled thread, which is soft and comfortable against the skin. This material rapidly pulls moisture off of the skin and transfers it to the quick-drying outer layer. Aiding in this process are the C102 mesh underarm panels. Additionally, the C101 fabric is used in conjunction with C167 for its ability to cool the skin with its boxy, Hexachannel structure. Craft 'bodymapped' areas of the torso prone to developing hot spots and incorporated panels made from these materials to further aid temperature regulation.
The jersey is patterned on an anatomic form that was designed to fit perfectly while in the riding position. You may feel a little bunching while standing upright, but on the bike, the fit is precise. The stretchy fabric and silicone-backed hem helps the jersey conform to your body, yet still provides you with a full range of motion.
With three deep pockets and a fourth zippered pocket, there is room for additional clothing and nutrition. There are also ports that allow personal communication devices to be cleanly routed up the interior of the jersey. A full-length zipper rounds out the top, along with reflective print that keeps you seen by motorists in low-light riding conditions.
The Craft Performance Jersey is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/bright red/white and Focus/black/white.
