Bring on the summer rides.
Warm days are here at last and with that comes loner rides an increase in saddle time. The key to staying comfortable on summer rides, especially if you encounter some extended climbing, is staying cool. Riding with a lower core temperature allows you to pedal a little longer and push harder on those efforts. So if you're in the market for a jersey that'll help you perform at your best during the warmest rides, have a look at the Men's Zircon II Jersey from Louis Garneau.
This standard fit jersey is a godsend when the temps start bordering triple digits and you'll quickly appreciate its ability to transport moisture and ventilate. Louis Garneau hooks it up with strategically placed square mesh panels on the side and one running the length of the back that lets body heat escape and cooler air in, while the 4-way stretch Zircon fabric dries quickly and provides the ideal fit on the bike. If the temps and the tempo are really high, the full-length zipper up front lets you dump heat and adjust the amount of air coming in to cool the core. A silicone gripper at the waist's hem ensures the jersey stays locked into position and just up from that are 3 rear pockets along with 1 side and 1 sweat-proof pocket with a headphone cable exit so you can take your tunes along for the ride. On those rear pockets is reflective trim that along with the reflective logos help you to be a little more visible on the road if you decide to take the long way home.
