Ashmei’s Classic is a little different looking to most race style jerseys with its simple retro styling. That said it’s made from a modern soft-to-touch, super-fine Merino wool and carbon blend fabric.


The addition of carbon is designed to speed up the evaporation/wicking process and increases the drying rate of the jersey. This makes it an impressive performer even on hotter rides.

I also liked that it dried quicker than regular Merino, which tends to hold moisture more than man-made fabrics, after being caught in a storm.

Ashmei has also given it a UPF50+ sun treatment for added protection.

The cut is fitted yet forgiving and comes up true to size, sitting well thanks to a silicone hem. Three deep pockets and a zip pocket take on load duties.

It’s not cheap, but this subtle looker performs superbly for training, sportives and long days in the saddle.
