1. » Souplesse Flyweight Jersey - Aero Block


Recent years have witnessed an aerodynamic arms race in professional cycling. Races might be won out on the road but they begin in the wind tunnel. This limited edition version of our ultra-lightweight summer race jersey features a design inspired by the lines drawn by scientists and engineers as they plot the flow of air across a rider’s body. From the darker areas of higher air pressure at the shoulders, the design fades to become lighter at the waist.

The front of the jersey features a lightweight fabric with a grid structure for optimised ventilation, allowing air to pass over the body. The back of the jersey is made of an alternate lightweight fabric which provides UPF 40 sun protection. Thanks to their excellent breathability, both fabrics dry very quickly – meaning they aren't weighed down with sweat after a few hard efforts in the heat. The sleeves are cut long for further protection from the sun. A full-length zip that locks and glides smoothly allows you to easily open up your jersey with one hand to let the air in when working hard. On the back of the jersey, the three cargo pockets have been engineered to expand and carry all your ride essentials while valuables are kept safe in a zipped hidden pocket. Keep cool even when working hard on your hottest rides.
