Panache makes a few simple changes to the classic tricolore jersey style and gives the Rider jersey a completely unique and cross platform appeal. The top and center color blocks are slightly angled to give a chevron-like appearance. Add collegiate style rib knit cuffs and collar and you get a jersey that will be right at home on the local group ride, dusty trail or weekend crit.
The main fabric used in the jersey is Coolmax. And when it comes to moisture management, it's doesn't get much better than that. By moisture management, we mean the fabric is able to take your perspiration and quickly transfer it the outer layer of the garment. The layer next to your skin is now dry again and the moisture in the outer layer dries out quickly from exposure to the elements. The Coolmax fabric has many perforations for added air flow and ventilation. From the outset, the Rider jersey looks like a very basic lifestyle piece, but it's actually a highly technical garment that will perform for you on every outing.
All of the Rider's panels are anatomically correct, so the jersey fits well while on the bike and in the cycling position. Other details include the full length YKK zipper that is easy to use and helps regulate body temperatures. 3 large pockets with one small zip pocket in the rear take care of storage duties.
