Keep unzipping.

From its classic, solid colors to its slim (but not constrictive) cut, the Gore Bike Wear Contest II Short-Sleeve Jersey is loaded with features and devoid of pretension. Wear it on your group ride or your weekend coffee-shop trek. The Contest II is for those of us who just like to get out and have fun on our bikes while getting a great workout.

The Contest II offers a lot of refinement at a wallet-friendly price. It's made of 100 percent polyester, so it pulls perspiration away from your body, where it would otherwise linger and contribute to discomfort. You get a 3/4-length front zip with a semi-lock slider so you can vent. The three-compartment back pocket tapers on the sides for easier access. There's an integrated security pocket on the right for keys, cash, or anything else you can't afford to lose. An elastic gripper on the hem ensures that the bottom of the jersey won't bunch up when you're in the drops. And there are reflective accents on the front, sleeves, and back, so you're sure to be seen in fading light or adverse weather conditions.

The Gore Bike Wear Contest II Short-Sleeve Jersey comes in sizes Small through XX-Large. It's available in five color options: Azur Blue, Black, Lemon, Red, and White.

This is my first choice out of the closet. Not too snug, not too loose. Very light and airy. Handle with care. Mine developed a stubborn wrinkle.

Excellent jersey for hot summer rides

Very comfortable jersey at a good price point. Light and airy, it wicks well and doesn't cling or get clammy. it isn't snug-fitting but it doesn't flap in the breeze either - just right for me and 3/4 zip is great. Have worn it on several 70-100 mile rides in 90F temps and it has performed well. Love the small zip key pocket in the back.

Can you tell me about the fit of this...

Can you tell me about the fit of this jersey, as well as the full-zip Contest? I know they are slim fit, but sometimes there are differences within lines. I'd like a road jersey that is on the tight side, and these are at a good pricepoint. I have some of your older Motion jerseys, and if they fit like those I'd be happy. Thanks.

This should fit like the Motion jersey, maybe a little bit looser. If you're looking for an almost exact match to the fit of the motion, you should check out the Contest FZ Jersey... same fabric as the Contest, but Full Zip, and a little bit tighter fit.


hope that helps,

Great purchase recommended

This is a great jersey that is comfortable and breathes really well. I've used it mostly for 30 miler trips either around town or up a canyon. The pocket for the key is awesome. I don't regret this purchase at all.
