The Contender Dot Jersey isn’t too far off of the King (or Queen) of the Mountain jersey. Traditionally, riders receive the KOM polka dot jersey when they’ve collected the most points in the hill climb sections in a tour. Rides are won and lost on the climbs, and dots signify that you aren’t just a proficient climber, but that you thrive on the climb.
Maybe it can just mean you like dots. look into it as much as you’d like; just as a work of art, our Dot Jerseys are gorgeous. Want to spice up your wardrobe? Get some polka dot socks (like these!), a tie, or maybe even a dress. Few patterns bring out youthful energy and exuberance like polka dots do.
It’s with those thoughts in mind that we came out with the Contender Dot Jersey. Not all of us are master climbers, but we can all put on this jersey, ride to the canyons, and imagine that we’re Richard Virenque, on our way to yet another KOM title. Or, ride to your favorite coffee shop and show off how fun you are to your friends. Both are good to us.
The Contender Dot Jersey features our “In the Club” fit; slightly relaxed for plenty of fun in and out of the saddle. The Dot Jersey is available in a men’s and women’s-specific cut; men’s jerseys come in six sizes (XS-XXL). Looking for the perfect accessory? Check out our matching Contender Dot Sock, an excellent companion for your feet both with and without our jersey.
