Spring is here.
As soon as you feel the first hint of spring in the air, it's hard not to fill up your tires, put on your favorite summer kit, and head out for a ride. However, once you're out on the roads, riding through a tunnel of lingering snowbanks and along gusty descents, the deceptive nature of spring riding becomes pretty obvious. When you're trying to adapt to warmer sun than you've felt in months, coupled with unpredictably cold descents, Sugoi's RS Thermal Jersey will make the transition days easier, providing a lightweight thermal layer that will give you more protection than warm-weather kit, while letting you enjoy the freedom of riding without multiple layers.
The brushed synthetic fabric that Sugoi uses to construct the RS Thermal doesn't feel much thicker than an ordinary polyester blend, but the brushed interior creates a layer of warm air that acts as insulation for your skin while continuing to facilitate rapid moisture transfer to the surface. The full-length zipper gives you the ability to adjust ventilation when climbing in the sun, while the wide, flat arm grippers ensure the jersey stays in place without bunching or chafing, helping you get a strong start to your summer tan lines.
