Like most of POC products, the POC Essential Jersey employs a AVIP (Attention, Visibility, Interaction, Protection) strategy developed from a meticulous scientific approach garnered from different fields.
POC identified that visibility is not always simply a question of wearing more fluorescent clothing, but considering and understanding the use of color and contrast and the environment in which it will be used. This approach led POC to the AVIP color palette, which is a cornerstone of AVIP. All colors in the AVIP color palette have been evaluated and considered to provide optimal visibility and contrast in a road bike environment.
The Essential Jersey with 4-way stretch fabric for a comfortable form fit is infused with aerodynamic technology in order to reduce drag. It is designed to enhance your visibility on the road and has a cut specific for your riding position, which ensures all day comfort, performance and safety.
The shoulders and back are made of a woven stretch fabric and uses a compact 3D structure to improve aerodynamic performance. The body is made of 4-way stretch fabric that offers a streamlined fit, allowing great freedom of movement and excellent breathability. This combination of technical fabrics reduces drag while efficiently wicking moisture away, keeping you cool and dry. The full length zip and under arm mesh allows for optimal flexibility and breathability.
