Redesigned from last year, the Curve has benefited from a feminisation of style. The shape is rather rectangular, but with contrast-stitched princess seams it has a flattering drape and is figure forgiving.
We've been impressed by Bicycle-line's offerings in the last two years and this jersey is no exception. It is fairly simple in terms of construction, yet the colourblock pattern is quite stylish.
You don't have to go down the wool route to get that retro look.
The top-end Carbon LE jersey actually uses fabric injected with organic carbon. This is made from coconut shells to provide moisture management and odour adsorption. .
We've been seriously impressed with the performance of DHB's clothing in the past and nothing changes here. The fleecy inner P Therm material sucks sweat up well and feels great against your skin.
I chose the Vapour as my only jersey for a week-long bike ride and came to appreciate the carbon-imbedded fabric for its smell-stopping power. Days of eight-hour rides, followed by being stuffed in a rucksack with other odorous kit.
The Freeride's textured polyester piqué fabric wicks well and dries fast, and heat and stink build-up is reduced by big mesh underarm vents. The loose fit and seam-free sloping raglan shoulder cut moves well over body armour.
This is perfect for cold rides. Its feminine cut means it hugs the figure brilliantly, being snug yet free-moving. The long cuffs, high collar and long back with elasticated hem allow you to stay warm and comfortable.
The Shark's thin, smooth-finish fabric is incredibly stretchy so everyone will know about your nipples and how many pies you've eaten. It's super snug and free moving though, with mesh underarm and shoulder panels boosting excellent wicking and drying speed.
The Sportive lady tank is a stretchy, form-fitting first layer. Madefrom Gore's Coolpower material, it's extremely supple and cool to thetouch, and while moisture doesn't evaporate quite as quickly as somemore porous fabrics
New Zealand has sheep to spare, so it's no surprise that the Baked Alaska is a woolly warmer. The Merino wool acts as a comfy, cosy inner face to a tougher polyester outer.
Howies NBL base layers have been responsible for much of the recent woolly renaissance. This top uses 100 per cent MAPP (Merino Advance d Performance Programme) wool, which is the finest fleece to come off a New Zealand sheep's back.
The classic, stylish retro looks of the Club jersey are much more than a homage to the past. The Club jersey is a highly technical garment and performs admirably no matter what the level of riding.
The Mack Daddy is just one of Sugoi's huge selection of quality jerseys. It has a mix of textured Terrano fabric and stretchier, softer Technifine material on the side panels, collar and chest strap for easy movement.
We're already on record as loving the Intermediate Evo, and one year and many miles later, nothing has changed. No other jersey comes close to handling the in-between chilly/warm weather of Spring and Autumn as well at the InterEvo.
