Day trips, weekend trips, bikepacking adventures… why should these have to stop as soon as the weather turns foul? Don’t let the elements break your rhythm!
Rhythm Thicky Jersey keeps you warm and protected from showers and wind so that you can keep riding day-in day-out, no matter the conditions.
Rhythm Thicky Jersey's insulating soft brushed inner keeps you warm and comfortable. The fabric is breathable, with a dense knit outer that makes the Thicky highly wind resistant. A DWR finish sheds a light shower to give you some weather protection without making you feel clammy when you’re working hard. The full-length front zip is excellent for regulating your temperature, so you can unzip on the climbs and cover up on your way back down again.
The Rhythm Thicky has a relaxed cut – not too aero but not baggy either – so you can comfortably wear it all day, both on and off the bike. The dropped hem and high neck give you full coverage when you go down into the drops, with silicon gripper on the hem to keep securely in place.
3 rear stash pockets give you space for a shell and a ride’s worth of food and tubes, with an additional zipped pocket for keeping your spare change and valuables safe.

I've been following alpkit for a while but never decide to buy their stuff as I prefer to check the clothing in person and we do not have the opportunity to do so in Barcelona, I got this jersey as a present and it's been by far the best present ever. It is soft at touch, the orange colour looks great and bright, the cut is neat, you can use it as a jacket over a jersey or as a jersey with a base layer under it.
The orange is spot on. The fit is spot on, the arms appear too a little long a first glance but this allows for movement and riding drops without it riding up. Comfortable, surprisingly warm and very wind resistant. The pockets work well too.
This review is for the old style: I like this top. Looks nice and is comfy and good value. Only complaint is that the mesh panels are draughty and show a lot of wear - whereas the rest of it is perfect - which is a little annoying. I’m glad the mesh is omitted on the new version but I hopefully I will resist getting that for a few years. Like a lot of cycling gear the sizing is small at 6’4 and 14.5 stone I need XXL. Fit is good.
It got me kitted out when I started cycling, but for long bike-packing trips...
I have recently returned from a 2200+ mile, 10 week bike packing/touring trip from Lands End to the north of the Shetland Islands. As well as including the Alpkit Stingray bag, STEM Cells and Fuel pod as part of my bike setup I took the Rythmn short sleeve and Kepler Velo Long Sleeve to wear when in hot and not-too-cold weather respectively.
During several months of training, I used the Squaline windshell, Rythmn Thicky Jersey and the Koulin Trail long sleeve base layer based on an Alpkit article about what to wear in each season. While these items got be going and eased me into the expense of kitting up for cycling and bike-packing (I started 2 years ago), out of necessity for my bike trip I chose to purchase items from other manufacturers that were less weight, less bulk, more ‘breathable’ and quicker drying. I am not suggesting the Alpkit kit fails. It cost me an arm and a leg to purchase this other kit, but low weight and bulk, the best breathability and drying times I could get were critical for me to achieve a 15kg kit load. It would be good if the drying time of the Thicky could be improved. After a laundry wash it was touch and go whether it would be dry by the next day, and I am sure that it wouldn’t have been dry by the next day on a bike-packing/camping trip.
