BikeRadar verdict

5 out of 5 stars

"Altura’s Raceline jersey is well tailored, warm and great at wicking"

Monday, May 13, 2013 11.00am By

Altura’s Raceline jersey is relatively heavy to begin with, weighing in at 340g for a spring-weight jersey. But, despite its weight, it’s surprisingly adept at wicking. 

The top performers in this area are the garments that gain as little weight as possible but are also able to shed that weight quickly afterwards. Given those criteria, Altura’s Raceline jersey is one of the best. It gained a very low 113g after an hour of riding but also lost an impressive amount (32g) in the following hour. 

It’s also comfy, well tailored and warm. All there is to criticise are the fiddly garages at the top and bottom of the zip, which make opening and closing it a faff.
