One hour goes by, then another, then another. If your morning loop sometimes turns into a home-by-moonlight affair, you'll want an off-road jersey that gives you all-day comfort and visibility. The Gore Bike Wear Countdown II Short-Sleeve Jersey 's comfortable, stretchy fit won't distract you from the awesomeness of the singletrack you're riding.
The Countdown II Jersey has an active, loose fit and is made of 80 percent nylon and 20 percent elastane, so it stretches with you. It wicks sweat away from your body, which promotes evaporation, and thus cooling. The flatlock seams are oriented horizontally rather than vertically to prevent chafing. A short zip with semi-locking slider lets you air out just the right amount, as do the armpit mesh inserts. Two zip pockets on the back store your ride essentials. There are plenty of reflective accents wrapping up the Countdown II Jersey to ensure that you'll be seen by motorists on your twilight journey back to civilization; the front logo, sleeves, and back are all tagged for 360-degree visibility.
The Gore Bike Wear Countdown II Short-Sleeve Jersey comes in sizes Small through XX-Large, and in five color options: Black/earth beige, Black/white, Earth Beige/black, Lime Green/earth, Red/black, and Black.
