When you design a custom jersey from the Nalini Pro Shop, you have a gigantic swatch in which to choose your materials and fabrics. We spent the time and went through literally hundreds of different fabrics, fabric weights and styles and assembled our interpretation of the finest warm weather cycling jersey.
The front body of the jersey has a doubled lined and perforated AirLite fabric that is super thin. This material has superb wicking properties and nothing breathes better. The rear body and arm pits have a tightly woven MicroHatch Mesh that is so airy, it is see-through when held up to a light (it is opaque when on your person). This material is incredible breathable as well.
The low cut French collar is doubled over MicroHatch and provides just enough support so the zipper doesn't sag when the jersey is fully zipped up. No silicon is used at the ends of the Raglan cut sleeves, the jersey relies on its superior cut and shape to fit your arms.
The pockets on the rear of the jersey are sewn it at an arch. This means the center pocket is taller for storage of larger items like a jacket and the side pockets are easier to access because of the downward slope on the ends. This brilliant concept comes from Nalini's vast experience of working with European Pros. Full YKK Vislon zipper can be operated with one hand and is durable and reliable. Average jersey weight is an amazing 128 grams.
I have been using the standard Excel team jersey for the last 2 seasons. It is excellent fit and finish. This new jersey design is really well done and works amazingly well in hot weather. The textile choice looks killer too. You need this jersey. I would like to suggest that Excel gets some Team bib shorts made in the same material.
Pros: Excellent fit and funtion
