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.

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.
Cycling vests are the unsung heros of cycling. Not only are they oft-forgotten and frequently mistreated, but once they’re absolutely needed they’re expected to perform at their very best. With those high demands, it only makes sense that we bring to you the 2018 Contender Bicycles Wind Vest. It’ll keep you rolling in style and warmth, with use of excellent materials and a cut perfect for nearly anyone.
This jersey comes from the Vermarc Sportline Line. The idea with Sportline is to provide riders with a material that is thick enough as block out wind, but with just enough stretch to fit a road cyclist that moves around constantly. The fabric is antibacterial, and shields the body from absorbing UV rays. The vest consists of two layers that do just that; one outer layer to prevent wind and keep out moisture, and an inner layer to ensure breathability.
If you’re looking to support your local bike shop in style, or if you’re looking for an excellent value vest, look no further. It provides excellent performance and longevity at a great price point. The 2018 Contender Bicycles Wind Vest is available in six sizes (XXS-XL). 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.
