At Westbrook cycles, we stock and supply an excellent range of cycling jerseys that we supply online to our customers. The right road cycling jersey is about so much more than just making a fashion statement - the right jersey makes each ride more comfortable, and in turn - more enjoyable. Although some riders choose to ride in a cotton t-shirt or top, such materials keep hold of sweat and grime - which means that as soon as you stop, you can expect to be incredibly cold.
Back in the day, most cycling jerseys were made out of wool - which had a number of drawbacks. Thankfully, today there are jerseys which are made from synthetic materials which have been designed to keep sweat away from the body, allowing you to stay warm and comfortable on each ride. There are also different materials and designs available, with some jerseys suiting your riding more. Those looking for a high end cycling jersey, will do well to consider a jersey which contains Merino Wool.
Trying on a cycling jersey can be a strange experience, as you are hunched over the handlebars when riding - those trying on a cycling jersey for the first time, may feel that the jersey is a little tight around the shoulders. One of the biggest choices to make is whether or not to choose a loose fitting jersey, or a tighter jersey. If you are purely riding recreationally, it may be more comfortable to wear a looser fitting jersey, if you are racing - it’s worth sticking with a tighter fitting, more aerodynamic jersey.
Whatever Jersey you choose, you can expect to see a number of different parts of the design which are there to make each ride as comfortable and easy as possible. Many jerseys have SPF protection, pockets for phones, spares and food, wind and water resistance and flatlock seams and hems to provide minimal rub.
The range of jerseys across this page have been handpicked from the world’s leading bike brands, including customer favourites such as Castelli. There are a complete range of men’s and women’s jerseys available, and please do get in touch if you have any questions about the right jersey for your needs.
