Having previously reviewed and highly rated the Tribesports Performance Tech Tee our expectations of the Performance Cycling Jersey were understandably high. Now in full production and shipping to over 180 countries, Tribseports were originally crowd-funded (via Kickstarter) and the growing company continues to utilise community-power to encourage feedback and influence design.
Not that the Performance Cycling Jersey has any sense of being designed by committee, more that it has clearly passed the rigorous scrutiny of serious cycling consumers. Available in both men’s and women’s versions it balances aesthetics and performance exceptionally well with a longer cut to the back, secured by a rear hem silicon grip strip to stop it riding up, and zoned ventilation under-arm to the sides for good temperature control.
Attention to detail shows with a ‘zip locker’ at the upper end of the generous 22cm front zip so there’s no neck-snagging (technical term?) or discomfort. It also features flatlock seams, reflective detailing and two lumbar pockets for gels, bars and other necessities, plus an additional, zipped pocket for keys, cash and cards.
Comfort is really noticeable with the Performance Cycling Jersey; the 12% Spandex / 88% Polyester fabric mix moves well on the bike, wicks and breathes admirably and also features an antibacterial treatment to help minimise ‘bike stink’ (another technical term?) and prolong the apparel shelf life.
The Tribesports Performance Cycling Jersey is available for men in black/yellow in sizes S-XXL and for women in charcoal/yellow in sizes XS-XL, both at £48.00. Full details and online purchase at Tribesports.com
