Nike cycle clothing deserves to be taken seriously. Those years of sponsoring the efforts of Armstrong have certainly paid off, with Nike now shipping a very strong cycling range at surprisingly good value.
The spherical textured Dri-Fit fabric of this jersey claims to improve airflow for superior wicking. It certainly moves sweat at a reasonable rate, and the slightly thicker fabric should extend the jersey’s colder weather potential with a bit of thoughtful layering.
The fit is tight without being able to count your ribs and the overall cut is well thought out. The hem is elasticated and doesn’t feature the rubber grippers, yet still manages to stay put as long as your Lycra shorts aren’t too shiny.
