Hincapie paid slightly closer attention to style when it designed its Power collection. Not to say the Power line of apparel isn't loaded with high-performance features—it is. But what you'll notice right away when you look at any of these garments is a clean, stylish look that you won't find often in cycling apparel. The Hincapie Sportswear Power Jersey is a perfect example of this dedication to style.
The Power Jersey features the soft-to-the-touch, ultra-lightweight Aerator double weave fabric. This weave ensures that you benefit from the gentle feel and powerful wicking of polyester, while maintaining the stretch characteristics you need for a full range of motion. Hincapie treated the jersey with Nano UV Cool, which not only reflects heat to keep the surface of the fabric cooler, but provides protection from the sun's harmful rays to give the Power jersey a UPF rating of 30+.
For breathability and further weight reduction, the Power jersey features Ventek Mesh stretch panels on the sides, back, and underarms. This produces an effective airflow through the jersey in order to keep you cool, and to aid in rapid moisture evaporation. Additionally, it also aids the fit and movement of the jersey with its malleable composition. So, when you bend and flex in the cycling position, the Ventek Mesh construction helps the jersey move with your body, not against it.
As for the fit of the jersey, Hincapie designed the cut for the position and movements of cycling. Accordingly, the rear of the jersey has been lengthened, while the front hem resides a bit higher on the stomach. While providing more adequate coverage than a traditional hem line, the system's primary duty is to eliminate the bunching of fabric. After all, fabric bunching is a typical source of skin abrasion. That's why the Power jersey has been designed with next-to-skin fit.
Hincapie also included reflective flat-lock thread on the seam that secures the center back mesh panel. This bolsters your visibility to motorists when your ride goes a little bit longer than expected. And for storage on these long days in the saddle, the jersey features three rear pockets.
The Hincapie Sportswear Power Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black or White.
