ALE Silver Cooling Short Sleeve Jersey
ALÉ's best jersey's are race oriented or race inspired, delivering high performance breathability, support, and efficiency through impressive use of technical fabrics and construction techniques. As an R-EV1 series design, the Silver Cooling Short Sleeve Jersey carries that race pedigree. As the name implies the Silver Cooling Jersey employs silver ion treatment to the dominant fabric in order to keep you as cool and dry as possible, while also allowing the natural antibacterial properties of silver to inhibit any order build-up. The quick release of moisture and the natural action go a long way to keeping the jersey fresher, for healthier skin and better viability of the jersey long term.
With a panel structure and fabric choices dictated by ALÉ's Body Mapping process as well as the R-EV1 designation, the Silver Cooling Jersey embraces the body, supporting and seeking to draw out moisture while allowing cooling air in based on the body's hottest output areas. By using their Bonded Technology seaming process, friction causing stitching is eliminated, and despite the fabric and panel transitions, the jersey feels like a soft second skin without being overly restrictive. The fit and fabrics work best when the rider is in the most aggressive riding positions. A Raglan sleeve and shoulder design creates a fluid range of motion with proper support, extending down the longer short sleeve design in vogue today. It ends in a simple fold-over cuff that assists the mildly compressive fabric in holding the sleeves in place.
All of the key details are here. A locking zipper allows you to set-up the front where you want it for more manual air flow on the toughest ascents or less on the way down. The rear pocket structure is ideal for a pro-style jersey. You get adequate storage and stability when loaded, plus the pocket zone is built for heat and moisture release, just like the rest of the jersey. The two side pockets are traditionally built and the center offers a greater stretch, and is ideal for an extra bottle. It also carries reflective details on the exterior for helpful low-light visibility. The rear elastic hem sits flat and carries silicone gripper that keeps it place.
When race fit and cooling are your priorities, the ALÉ Silver Cooling Short Sleeve Jersey is a top choice. Remember, this is European company, and this is a true race cut, so sizing up is advisable for anyone who is even close to the upper range of any size, and many report moving a full size up regardless, which is likely as much a function of personal preference as intended fit.
