The Stratos is described as ‘the ultimate trail jersey’ and it emerges from its wrapping with a silken expensive feel. The airy mesh fabric is gorgeous! It’s so light it’s barely there, but it’s super-wicking and fast-drying.
The technical detail is there too, with bonded lighter mesh inserts on the back, front and side panels, scuff guards on the shoulders and elbows, and a taped neck with heat transfer label.
The fit feels roomy but not baggy and combined with the feather-like material it makes for one extremely comfortable jersey – even in hot conditions. We love the ride performance, but even with the carefully placed scuff guards we wince when we wear this near anything potentially snagging.
