The Contender Club provides our members with an opportunity to participate in all aspects of the sport of cycling – from racing to recreational riding to advocacy. Every year, the club is involved with a number of events, non-profit organizations, advocacy efforts, group rides, clinics and races. Membership in the club includes additional benefits. Preseason opportunities and monthly specials will be available to only club members at Contender Bicycles. Once you buy any item of 2018 Contender Club apparel, you will officially be part of the club and will be added to an exclusive email list. This includes the 2018 Contender Bicycles Classic Jersey.
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 2018 Contender Bicycles Long Sleeve Jersey is the cure to what ails you, as it not only looks great, but has fantastic fit and quality too.
This jersey comes from the Vermarc Essential Line. A bit heavier than the short sleeve classic jersey, it makes for an excellent pairing for early Fall/late Spring alone, but works well for cooler temperatures with a baselayer or vest. Fit is a race cut hybrid of sorts, not so tight as to constrict the body outside of a low and aero position, but tight enough to not flap in the wind and cause excess friction.
If you’re looking to support your local bike shop in style, or if you’re looking for an excellent value jersey, look no further. It provides excellent performance and longevity at a great price point. The 2018 Contender Bicycles Long Sleeve Jersey is available in seven sizes (XXS-XXL).
