Often described as a cyclist’s paradise – with its sunny, temperate climate, varied terrain and breath-taking scenery – it does feel like all roads lead to the Golden state of California. It is also a place where our updated Classic Short Sleeve Jersey would feel immediately feel at home. Timeless, yet somehow fresh.
Created to be a highly versatile all-year-round go to Jersey, our Classic is amazingly soft to pull on courtesy of its superfine MERINO + CARBON blend. This is a fabric designed to keep you cool, dry and comfortable – offering great body temperature regulation and moisture management. Thanks to its natural wicking capabilities, the Merino blend dissipates any moisture from your skin to the outer layer of the fabric, keeping you incredibly dry – even in serious summer heat. This luxurious blend of fabrics also boasts 10 times faster wicking than normal Merino wool – and also dries twice as fast.
The Jersey has been re-engineered at the rear, with three stuff pockets now in place to keep your accessories balanced. A zipped security pocket keeps essential items secure, should you need that peace of mind. Weighing in at just 195g, this is a serious piece of kit that is lighter, softer and more breathable for all year round high intensity riding in comfort.
Elliot, head of product development summates “the development process at ashmei is a constant ambition for perfection, the step changes in the classic jersey show just this, everything on the jersey has been tweaked to improve the performance our classics.”
