RACE MTB JERSEY
It’s a straightforward name for a cleanly designed long-sleeve jersey that’s available in six colours. There are low-key more reserved colours and designs as well as the brighter, louder style we have in for test. The 100% Polyester fabric has a good degree of stretch and a smooth finish. It has a quality feel to it, with a well designed and finished neck and lycra bound cuffs. The arms have a raglan cut so the seams are well placed, and mobility (in combination with the fabric’s stretch) is very good. We’ll have to put it to test but we feel this fabric may well work over a broad range of temperatures better than most. Its closer weave may well be what’s needed in our changeable UK conditions.
There’s very little else we would add on this type of jersey. Maybe a small security pocket or a goggle cleaning patch on the inside?
The cut is more of a closer fitting trail/enduro fit and we feel a lot of kit is heading this way size-wise, even DH specific clothing. If you’re always between sizes then maybe go up a size on this brand.
A well made, high quality long sleeve jersey with a distinctive style that looks suitable for DH through to trail riding.
TEST UPDATE: 19.05.16
With a spell of warmer weather here in the UK we’ve been out testing on a regular basis. This Pull-In jersey has been an instant hit… the smooth fabric has proven to be a great choice being both cool on the skin yet reasonably wind resistant when out on a hill top. The long sleeves have added a touch of protection from the sun without overheating and we’ve been impressed at just how the fabric lifts moisture and dries very quickly. The cut is good, with the right length (front and back) and a well shaped collar. The elasticated wrists mean the sleeves can be pulled up when things warm up but we’d like another 2cm on the length ideally.
A very straightforward yet stylish riding top with an excellent cut and a high performing fabric. It’s sure to be a favourite for the summer ahead and into the autumn.
