You don’t get much bike jersey for less than 30 quid these days, so to find that the Drift costs about the same as a decent T-shirt was a surprise. As you’d expect, the fabric is a standard wicking mesh – but it does its job efficiently and without fuss.
The Drift is pretty robust in the face of abuse from a washing machine or under a pack. The fit is relaxed but neat around the neck and shoulders so that it’s never sloppy – and with construction details such as raglan sleeves, a taped neck seam and a heat transfer neck label, this is so much more than a basic cycling T-shirt.
The graphics are enough to be stylish but not so much as to be sartorially divisive. If you’re on a tight budget this is a good place to start: the no-nonsense style with beyond-basic detail is what makes it the value winner.
