Perhaps known more for their casual cycle wear, Altura’s Synchro jersey is fit for any kind of riding and racing. The soft, light and stretchy Merly fabric is body skimming and comfortable. In the heat, it doesn’t feel as dry, or dry as quickly, as meshier weaves, as there’s less air flow through the fabric. It has anti-UV power for sensible protection from the sun though. The collar comes up nice and high and there’s a small flap that keeps the zipper end from rubbing the skin. There’s one zippered rear pocket and a tiny reflective logo. Silicon gripper keeps the hem in place.
