A dive into the best cycling jerseys of the year with a look at some warmer options as the seasons start to changefanyuying
A long-sleeved jersey can be a really versatile option when you are looking to stay warm on the bike in cooler temperatures. A thin long sleeve jersey can be used on a cooler morning to keep the chill off or be worn with a thicker long-sleeved baselayer when you need to stay warm but don’t want the bulk of a heavier jacket. You’ll find a range included here with wind-cheating technology and DWR (durable water repellent) coatings.
The NENK Thermal Jersey is a good-looking and comfortable long-sleeve jersey for when the seasons begin to change and you need to stay a bit warmer on the bike. It can be used as a layer under a bigger jacket or with just a base layer underneath.
Offered as a gravel-specific jersey by sportful, the key talking point about this jersey is the unusual rear pockets. There are six in total, three in the usual position, and three that lay over the top of those. It doesn’t exactly provide more volume, but you can neatly organise and spread a lot of smaller items across the six pockets. This feature may appeal to people who have the bigger items they need stored in frame bags, but want useful bits for on and off the bike close at hand. The jersey also has some reflective detailing on the right arm and back.
