The use of silk in cycling jerseys was pioneered on the track in the 1940s but with this, the lightest jersey we have ever made, we bring it back to the vanguard of performance clothing. Using an exceptionally lightweight construction that combines the natural sweat-wicking, fast-drying and antibacterial properties of silk with polyester for added strength, stretch and breathability, the jersey weighs in at just 98 grams in size medium.
Produced in the same Italian mill as our revolutionary Shadow material, the silk fabric is highly absorbent, wicking away sweat rapidly, but also extraordinarily quick-drying, meaning that it feels cool and dry on the skin even when you’re working hard in the heat. Mesh side panels provide additional breathability and create the same stretch fit as the Classic Flyweight Jersey. To keep weight to an absolute minimum, the jersey features a super lightweight full-length zip, a slimline rear gripper and bonded seams on the back at armband. Three gusseted rear pockets carry all you’ll need for the ride, while a raised collar to help protect your neck from the sun.
To preserve the natural properties of your jersey, wash it with similar colours to avoid colour bleeding, do not iron, and use the integrated hanger loop at the collar to dry.
