Riders of a certain age will instantly recognise the Helly Hansen signature stripe – and we like the way the motif has been worked into this bike-specific style. Somehow it just feels as if it will make us ride faster. 


The Lifa fabric is super effective at both wicking and drying and although we expected some less-than neighbourly results from some back-to-back hard rides it stayed remarkably fresh.

There are two large rear pockets and these, combined with the neat cut, mean we’d recommend this for demanding XC types who want to travel fast and light. It’s not flashy, but the sheer hard-working nature of the fabric – together with the serious implications of those heritage Helly Hansen stripes – makes this a jersey we really want to own.
