The best women’s cycling jerseysfanyuying
The best women’s cycling jerseys have come a long way from the ‘shrink it and pink it’ approach of decades past, with companies and designers finally giving some time and care into the development of women’s-specific kit. With a variety of options available to tackle all the seasons, we’ve taken a closer look at the best jerseys to use throughout the year. This includes options for warmth, aerodynamics, comfort or price, since the market is broad and there really is a jersey to fit any need now.
For warmer days, a lightweight jersey with short sleeves can play an important role in moisture management, helping to wick away sweat from the skin and keep you feeling cool. Thicker jerseys, on the other hand, are better suited as a layer of insulation paired with the best women’s waterproof cycling jackets, but whatever the weather, we recommend starting your layering with one of the best women’s cycling base layers.
Popular cycling brand Rapha are well-known for their block colour jerseys with a singular contrasting armband and it’s highly likely that you’ll have spotted this design at some point whilst out on your bike. There’s a reason their jerseys are so popular and this Women’s Core Jersey incorporates all of these: it’s comfortable, flattering and practical.
Three rear pockets, plus a handy zipped pocket for valuables (big enough to squeeze in a mobile, yay) means you can stuff your pockets easily with all your ride essentials, while the silicone gripper on the base of the jersey keeps it from riding up. We liked its length, which makes it suitable for those with a longer torso and its flattering cut, which gives a close fit but without the need to suck anything in. This jersey also comes in at a great price point with its luxe feel and details comparable to those at a higher cost.
