The jersey of choice for cross rides in cool weather

Designed as the jersey of choice for high-intensity cyclocross rides in cool weather, the Cross Souplesse Long Sleeve Jersey shares the performance-minded fabrics and tailoring of the Souplesse Collection.

Cut from a sweat-wicking, durable, proprietary fabric wicks that withstands the demanding conditions of cyclocross, whether you’re planning a one-hour race or an explorative ride in the woods. A high collar and shaped cuffs in a contrasting colour keep cold air off the neck and arms, and the right shoulder features a padded panel for shouldering the bike. Tailored at the waist to create a slimline silhouette with a full length zip, three rear pockets and a zipped valuables pocket.


“A jersey costing this much needs to work very hard to impress, and I’m not generally a fan of attempts at ‘cycling niche’ marketing, but you can actually wear the souplesse jersey on a mountain bike or road ride without any funny looks or inner turmoil. The truth is though, it’s perfect for cyclocross. The fabric is the ideal weight, for starters.”
★★★★½ Fi Spotswood, Bikeradar
