Rhythm Short Sleeve Jersey [Mens]
Technical short sleeved cycling jersey, wicking with breathable mesh back panel, 4 rear stash pockets and rear zipped pocket
Our short sleeved jersey is all about comfort and performance. Constructed from synthetic breathable and moisture wicking fabrics, ideal for fast moving aerobic activity, this jersey can be worn next to the skin and layered up under your thermal layer or windproof.
Stylish performance is not a word I would use to describe my riding, however it does nicely sum up this jersey. Smart lines, multi-panel construction, an ergonomic fit and a understated classy design pull together to make this a jersey a rather elegant performer.
A mesh panel runs down the back along the spine to increase comfort and breatheability. This is repeated under the arms; moisture wicking, the soft polyester fabric is fast drying making it just as suitable in hot, dry conditions as it is in the cold and wet. To the rear there are 4 easy access stash pockets for spare inner tubes, trail pump, windproof and suchlike. There is also a small zipped pocket for your valuables, a few coins for a panino and a espresso.
A full length zip runs down the front of the jersey giving you the option of maximum venting when it gets hot while still protecting your back from the sun. The collar helps protect your neck and, when zipped up, shield you against the bitting wind on your way back down from the Stelvio.
The back length is extended with silcone grippers so it sits just where it should whether you are sitting up in the saddle taking in the view or tucked down low in hot pursuit.

Top quality for average bods.
This is a very well put together shirt. The fabric is light and comfortable with lots of give and though the mesh panels are not obvious they vent well. Undoing the zip when hot brings air not just into but right through the shirt, cooling you down fast.
The collar is fitted but not too tight.
Sleeve and hem grippers work well, keeping everything in place without any pulling sensation.
The pockets are perfect, keeping things securely contained but nicely within reach. A great touch is is the 4th (or 5th if you like) pocket on the right hand side. This is very easily reached and a little smaller than the others, I have my multitool in there so it doesn't rattle against my phone in the centre pocket.
There's enough storage to get rid of your saddlebag entirely.
For me (a very average shape, not at all a cycling whippet) the fit is spot on. I have to size up in cycling gear and don't even bother with super skinny gear like Castelli, I bought my normal shirt size in this.
More colours would be nice, my only criticism.
Sizing a little off
It seems nice enough quality but sizing/shape is an issue.
Using the size guide I should be somewhere between a small-medium, I bought a small and its way too big in places. For me it is relatively tight around the chest, but then really baggy in the shoulders (and i'd say i have a fairly normal cyclist physique) - i would recommend going at least 1 if not 2 whole sizes smaller than what you think you should buy.
average quality, sizing ok
I am a 182cm tall, 80Kg, sportsmen, with a well developed upper body and the medium sizing was just tight enough.
For this raisonnable price the quality is just OK. The elastic strap at the upper arms give sign of wear after just a few ride. The seams give worrying noise when i dress up. I don't think it will last long.
So it is a well cut, generic Chinese made bicycle jersey. I like the look of it but i will not buy it again.
