Fox Attack jersey £55

Comfortable mountain bike jersey

BikeRadar score 4.5/5

The Fox Attack is one of those jerseys that just 'feels right' when you put it on, hence its high score. On first glance it appears to be a straightforward technical T-shirt, but every detail has been exceptionally well thought-through and executed.

Flatlock seams throughout mean there are no lumps or bumps and also give a chafe-free finish. They complement the ultra-smooth main body fabric, which has worn well despite its silky feel and is showing no signs of ride-fatigue despite being picked from the pile more often than not as the days have warmed up.

The back is made from what’s described as a ‘structured mesh.’ In real terms, that means its more open knit helps keep you cool, plus it’s extremely effective at wicking away sweat and then drying. With the addition of venting holes down the sides, this means it’s as comfortable a jersey as we’ve ever worn in hot weather.

The V-neck and the panel construction of the shoulders help create a fit that’s neat and relaxed at the same time, and while it might be a tiny exaggeration to say the Attack moves like it’s part of you, it’s pretty damn good.

A long dropped tail and cleanly overlocked hem are the finishing touches that keep things sleek if you want to tuck it in, but keep you covered in style if you want to let it all hang out.
