Few moments in road racing are as exhilarating as rocketing away from a competitor who's trying to hold your wheel. We're not saying the Gore Bike Wear Phantom Short-Sleeve Jersey will do the heavy lifting for you on the attack, but it does come in a tight, ergonomic fit and with a nice mix of technical features that won't hold you back when you decide to disappear from sight.
It's clear that Gore Bike Wear designed the Phantom Jersey for speed; there's not a lot of extra fabric used here. The 3/4-length front zip is concealed to create a wind-slippery surface. The Phantom breathes well, however, with mesh inserts under the arms, in back, and at the nape. The nylon/spandex blend of fabrics wicks away sweat so that it can evaporate before it inhibits your performance. An ergonomic collar negates any turtleneck-ish feeling when you're fully zipped. At the waist, an elastic hem and silicone gripper keep the jersey from bunching up. The three-compartment back pocket tapers on the sides for easier access. Reflective print on the front logo, as well as on the sleeves and back, keeps you visible when you want to be seen.
The Gore Bike Wear Phantom Short-Sleeve Jersey comes in sizes Small through XX-Large, and in five no-nonsense color options: Black/white, Citrus Green/white, Pool Blue/black, Red/black, and White/red.
I've other Gore product and like Gore product, but this jersey does not fit on me.
Great service from backcountry.com thanks.
Like all Gore stuff, this is a nice jersey. Well made. Nice quality. It is NOT a full-zip jersey. It is 3/4 zip. That's not the problem for me though. Unfortunately, the fabric on this one is soooo soft and stretchy I can't seem to get anything in or out of the back pockets when I am riding. I have the Oxygen jersey and it does not have this problem. Still highly recommend Gore gear. Their bibs are great. Just not this jersey for me.
