For summer rides we have devised lightweight jerseys with proprietary smart fabrics, that enhance the thermoregulation process and reduce the uncomfortable overheating effect that happens when regular jerseys become saturated with sweat, a common occurrence during this time of the year. As needs differ, depending on the conditions you find yourself in, we have devised three main categories from which the rider can choose the proper layering system:
All the fabrics of the Essential Collection have been throughly tested with our analytical-instrumental method that tests thermal-hygrometic comfort, giving us objective results on the performance of each piece of equipment.
This is not an update or a reconstruction. This is all new and it’s powerful!
New pattern cut with minimal use of seams. Revolutionary 3-dimensional Fabric – delivering a 50% quicker drying time than our previous jersey.
A completely new fabric enriched by HeiQ Smart Temp treatment, a hydrophilic treatment that increases both cooling and moisture management:
• Cools only when you need it
• Cooling activated by high skin temperature
• Perfect balance of temperature in changing conditions and varied activity levels
• Cool, dry, comfortable
HeiQ Smart Temp treated fabrics dynamically react to body temperature helping the wearer stay cool. This treatment gives faster initial cooling and cools more over a longer time (compared to untreated fabrics).
HeiQ Smart Temp treated textiles enhance the wearer’s comfort and compliment the body’s natural thermal cooling.
Weighing in at a mere 100g, this super light jersey was devised with a new proprietary woven fabric with a high silk content. The return to natural fibers in performance equipment gives this jersey an extra boost: it has good low heat conductivity properties, perfect for hot and humid conditions. In addition, we introduce silver thread into the weft of the fabric that offers not only antibacterial and anti-odour protection but also increases thermoregulation and creates an anti-static barrier against electromagnetic fields. The sartorial construction is an evolution of the G1 that we call ‘Monocoque’: it’s a single panel that follows the anatomy of the body along the torso, resulting in a snug fit.
The jersey G1 is entirely made with knitted fabric comprised of special yarns and uses a double face construction to increase the mechanical push – pull action that removes sweat away from the skin during the ride. We chose to use 70% recycled polyester yarn to support eco sustainable and to reduce the overall environmental impact of the product. The jersey revisits a traditional ‘giro manica’ construction, it is totally pre-shaped in a riding position.
After careful studies both in the areas of body mapping and aerodynamics, our new raglan is designed using a combination of different fabrics strategically placed resulting in a new look and offering all the benefits of our detailed research.
The sleeves are made with a lightly ribbed fabric while the front panel is a micro perforated fabric and there is a honeycomb mesh on the back. All together, this innovative combination makes the Jersey R2 very light (110gr) and very breathable.
