Selecting the correct performance wear is very important, not just in cycling.

The first question to ask yourself is….


1- WEATHER – What conditions will I be riding in?

Spokesman jersey

Are you riding in the winter or the summer and where will you be riding, in the UK our touring through France?

These are really important questions, as they will have bearing on your jersey selection.

Addressing the seasons first, obviously cycling in the Winter and Summer will require a different selection of clothing.

Is there a possibility that there will be changeable conditions?

Our ever-popular Trio Jersey takes you through the seasons  And comes with a pair of fleece-lined arm warmers so depending on the conditions you can either have them on or off.

Our race cut Trio Jersey is like a lightweight second skin, created from ultra-light four-way stretch jersey to make you completely aerodynamic.

The fabric is a three-ply Stormshield fabric, providing great protection from the elements, as it is both windproof and water-resistant. 

As the seasons change the Trio Jersey will be your perfect companion, it’s adaptable, comfortable, and perfect for any weather condition!

Are things warming up outside?

In dry, warm conditions we would recommend a light jersey.

The Chronicle Jersey has a superb aerodynamic fit, but unlike most of the slim cut jerseys, which are clingy and constricting, the high stretch fabric is fitted but comfortable and it won’t hug you too tightly.

Designed as a successor to our hugely popular Ghost Jersey, the fabric features the same Coldblack® technology which absorbs less heat, staying cool against the skin in hot weather. Despite being a black jersey, the Chronicle jersey is still ideal for summer because we use Coldblack technology which absorbs less heat, staying cool against the skin.

The sleeves are raw edge mesh, which reduces the weight you’re carrying when you wear it. The back panel overlaps the pocket section of the garment adding a further aerodynamic quality. The inside panel features a chronicle of our favourite bikes through the last century.

2- STYLE – What cycling will you be doing?

The correct style and fit ensure the maximum performance and comfort of your cycling jersey.

Are you road racing or off-roading or do you just want to be comfortable?

If you are looking for a performance fit then our Tracker Jersey has a superb aerodynamic fit!

Spokesman jersey

It features a perforated mesh that starts at the shoulder and runs into a cuff for added breathability. It also features strategic stitch lines to stop the back pocket bagging when it’s full of your essentials and a reflective stripe for enhanced visibility in the evenings. The print is taken from track marks on the Manchester velodrome.

Off road riding?


The Cross Jersey is made using very tough, high density, stretch polyester jersey, with a fine-brushed back chosen because of its high resistance to nagging and abrasion. As a Gravel Rider, this jersey is suitable for riding both on and off road and is specifically designed to combat mud and wheel spray. The contour pattern was inspired by the elevations of the Dalby Forest in Yorkshire.

Is comfort your priority?


An all-around jersey, the Champions Jersey is our most premium garment as it’s made with a high wicking jacquard fabric, a first in cycling jerseys. It is a soft and comfortable fabric, which is also highly breathable and includes a strip of the reflective pixel on the neck and zip for low light protection. The inside of the garment features a list of the winners of a well known all night cycling race in London.

3- LOOKING GOOD! – Are you looking for bright colours? Or do you want functional wear?


It may sound funny but choosing your colour and look is a massive factor, does this mean you are more likely to wear it and more likely to get out when you are less inclined to? We think so!

If you are riding at night, reflectiveness is important and if you are carrying everything you need can your Jersey support this?

Our Climbers Jersey is the epitome of cool. The back features a band of reflective pixel for visibility and the interior back panel features a To Do list of European climbs

Spokesman jersey

The Climbers Jersey has an aerodynamic but comfortable fit which is tailored from 3 fabrics. The front panel is a very breathable (but not see through) mesh, and the back and shoulders are made from a performance stretch fabric, with high UPV protection. It has mesh panels to the sides for ventilation and the three back pockets are made from a sturdier mesh to prevent bagging when the pockets are filled with cargo.

Got the technical gear? Are you carrying supplies?


Our Sportif Jersey is designed for a long day in the saddle. It is made from a high density, water resistant stretch polyester jersey. Three internal back pockets allow you to carry extra supplies in preparation for the ride ahead. Along with the standard reflective panel on the back pocket there is an additional reflective strip across the back providing added visibility as the days’ conditions change. The inside print features a breakdown of our top ten sportives.
