Alphonsine uses a unique polar fleece fabric, specifically designed to effectively trap air against the body and so provide a natural layer of insulation in colder riding conditions. In conjunction with this, the blend also takes advantage of merino’s natural thermoregulation and moisture management properties, producing a jersey that is fully breathable, high wicking and odour resistant.
There are front shoulder ripstop windproof panels for further protection from the elements while, unlike a traditional fleece, the fabric has true four way stretch to allow for both a streamlined slim fit on the bike and a full range of movement.
Along with a single chest pocket, Alphonsine has two, oversized, rear cargo pockets and also a zipped pocket for valuables. A full zip aids temperature control, a reflective element adds to security when riding in poor or low light while styling details include a chest patch logo along with contrasting pocket flaps and zips.
