We all have one jersey that never gets worn. Whether its due to an uncomfortable fit, or because the jersey isn’t the most visually appealing thing out there, no designer goes out and says “I’m going to make a really frumpy jersey today”. The 2017 Contender Aero Jersey is the cure to what ails you, as it not only looks great, but has fantastic fit and quality too.
The 2017 Contender Bicycles Aero Jersey is from Vermarc’s Sportline AERO line, meaning it uses predominantly a lightweight 100% polyester fabric. It is designed with a double face structure, utilizing two different yarns to increase the expulsion of the sweat toward the external surface. The microfiber fabric, thanks to its micro perforated structure, promotes the fast drying and the airflow while maintaining a soft hand. The jersey is a bit stiffer than the average cycling jersey, due to it being designed more for aerodynamics. As such, it’s not as breathable under the hottest conditions and is best worn when performance is of the utmost importance.
If you’re looking to support your local bike shop in style, or if you’re looking for an top-quality jersey, look no further. It provides excellent performance and longevity at a great price point. The 2018 Contender Bicycles Aero Jersey is available in seven sizes (XXS-XXL). Fit is race cut, but not so tight as to constrict the body outside of a low and aero position.
