Universal Colours Chroma Womens Short Sleeve Jersey
Premium fabrics, considerate manufacturing techniques and modern style converge in the Universal Colours Chroma Womens Short Sleeve Jersey. Utilising a French woven fabric, abrasion resistance is around four times higher than a traditional knit, while being lighter and offering improved compression. Cut to minimise drag, the jersey hugs the body and has longer length sleeves, with the rotated armholes bringing a fit that's perfect in the riding position. Despite the compressive support, there's plenty of stretch in the material for freedom of movement, and the open square weave makes the jersey breathable and moisture-wicking to keep you fresh on hot summer days and through hard efforts.
A full-length front zip provides you with another way to adjust ventilation levels so you can get a cooling blast of fresh air when you hit a long climb. A guard prevents skin chafing when you're fully zipped up. There's an antibacterial treatment on the fabric to reduce the build-up of microbes and associated smells, improving longevity. Stability is ensured by silicone at the hem, limiting movement even when your pockets are packed full. Finished with reflective detailing, you'll be more visible to other road users in low light riding conditions.
