Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form and function and style The story behind the jersey was my first port of call. I read the words with interest, and being a bit of a francophile, it resonated. So I took a closer look at the jersey. Style initially. Bold and striking. At once Harlequined court jester and traditional team styling. I was in, impulse buy, who needs more jerseys? Not me for sure. But soon after arriving in the post it has risen to be in my top 3. The style helps, but mainly the beautiful smooth wool blend, easy to wear in the Aussie spring, and not the least irritating to my skin which normally hates wool jerseys (I always wear undershirts under wool to prevent itch, even the dearest Merino stuff). And finally the quality manufacture and details I have come to rely on, only found in my Rapha jerseys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Visible and the Benefits of Wool It's been shown that contrast, rather than color, is what makes a jersey visible. This thing burns the eyeballs if you look at it too long, which is exactly what I like. Even if you hate acid-yellow, you can still have a hi-viz jersey. I also wear wool and wool blends exclusively and could pontificate for hours about the benefits. I'll just say 'far superior evaporative cooling' and you can go read a book.

What do the A and the K on the sleeves stand for? Anquetil and … ?

Asked by: erikdams
Hi, the A and K refer to Ace and King. Antequil being the Ace and the King being Poulidor. There are other details referring to this famous rivalry, such as the JAC:RAY detail on the right side of the chest.

Love the new Sportswool Rivals Jersey, but what is it like in a Tropical environment. I reside in Singapore and wondered how it would fare in the heat and humidity. Base layers are fine as we ride in the wee hours but not sure about the Wool/Pol mix.. THX

Asked by: Billtm
Hi, I'm glad you like it. The Jersey will be breathable but warmer than some of our other products such as the Super Lightweight jersey or Pro team Climbers Jersey. It is always hard to advise a precise temperature range as everyone regulates temperature differently and it will also depend on exertion levels.
