There's a time for team kits, and there's a time for understated, classy attire. If your next ride falls into the latter category, consider the Gore Contest Short Sleeve Men's Jersey.

For the construction of the Contest, Gore chose a polyester microfiber fabric for its ease of care and ability to wick sweat away from the skin. By transporting moisture from the skin to the surface of the fabric, the Contest keeps the rider dry and comfortable. The construction of the Contest takes advantage of evaporative cooling in order to provide thermo-regulation on warm days. Meanwhile, mesh underarm panels further enhance the jersey's core-cooling airflow. And in addition to this, the stretchy fabric keeps you comfortable no matter how many times you readjust your position in the saddle.

A contoured cut complements the understated styling of the jersey, making the Contest an adaptable piece, regardless of the intent of your ride. Gore uses flatlock stitching throughout, which keeps chafing and fabric bunching to a minimum. Additionally, Gore placed a full-length semi-lock zipper at the front of the jersey that lets you dump heat in a hurry. This zipper leads up to a close-fitting collar that rests against your neck instead of flapping in the breeze.

For holding your ride essentials, the Contest has three rear pockets. Even better, the outside pockets have been slanted for easy access while in the saddle. Gore also incorporated reflective materials throughout the jersey to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

The Gore Bike Wear Contest Jersey - Short Sleeve - Men's is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/white, Blaze Orange/white, Neon Yellow/white, Red/white, Splash Blue/white, and Weekend Green/white.

The perfect summer jersey!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jersey is an amazing value. I own over 20 different cycling jersies (inclucing the Gore Xenon 2.0 Jersey which costs twice as much), and this one is my hands-down favorite for warm-weather riding.
Why? AWESOME ventilation. Mesh panels are perfectly placed - this jersey stays dry and airy even when temps soar above 100 degrees here in the Sierra Foothills. I am a high-sweat-rate rider, and in over 30 years of competitive riding, I have never had anything that transports moisture so well.
Other benefits of note:
Pockets are well placed, and there are no silly, unserviceable zippered compartments that require two hands to open while on the bike or to harbor mold on the washline.
I LOVE the collar that tapers down to the neck zipper. Pros tend to wear high-collared jersies, but that is because that collar is billboard space for sponsors. I own several high-collared jersies for cold-weather use, but unless you ride around with the jersey zipped all the way up in the summer, that extra collar is going to just flap around in the wind and chafe or annoy.

Only caveat: this jersey breathes so well , that when climbing in hot & dry conditions with little wind, you may find yourself pouring water down your back for additional cooling. This is a tradeoff I'm willing to take for a jersey that never leaves you with a clammy belly on long descents.

Note on sizing: this is a RACE fit, aerodynamic jersey. For European standards, it actually runs rather large. I'm a wiry 6'1" 155lb, 40" chest & a Gore's medium fits me perfectly (I'm an XL in most Italian jersies, and a M/L in American brands like Pear Izumi). If you want a baggy / loose fit, look elsewhere.

Too Small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Bought a medium for someone who is 5'9", 160 lb, very lean. Medium was very tight. Jersey looks good, but will have to send back and exchange for larger size.

Is this your first European cycling jersey? This is a RACE fit, aerodynamic jersey. For European standards, it actually runs rather large. I'm a wiry 6'1" 155lb, 40" chest & a Gore's medium fits me perfectly (I'm an XL in most Italian jersies, and a M/L in American brands like Pear Izumi).
I would recommend waiting to review a product 'till you've actually USED it. What are you going to give an even smaller sized Medium Castelli jersey, one star? Educate yourself FIRST, then review.

I agree with BergMann , the product is not too small at all. Because of jss105409136 I bought a large and its too big. I'm 6' and 172 lbs, 39'' chest... Backcountry should delete his review
