Our Aquazero Long Sleeve is based on the Vermarc Aquazero Long Sleeve falls in with every other quality piece of Vermarc kit, but with a bit more protection. This long-sleeve piece is designed to offer light protection against rain, wind, and cold conditions while still maintaining breathability. It belongs to the DVstretch series, which takes that outer DWR-treated membrane and pairs it to a fabric that can go 85% with full recovery and full windproofing with 0.1 cm permeability. Translation? Aquazero will work well as a cool to cold weather layer when paired with a base layer but will do much better than our traditional Contender Classic Long Sleeve when it becomes windy or wet outside.
The 2020 Contender Bicycles Aquazero Long Sleeve is available in four sizes (S-XL). Fit is race cut, with the aim of forming a second skin of sorts without the bulk of a comparable piece of apparel. Sizing up from our regular PRR jerseys is a good idea, and if you're on the edge, size up. Vermarc says this is best from 50 degrees Fahrenheit all the way down to freezing temperatures with a baselayer.
