8 super stylish jersey picks from around the globe
Get ready for a summer of super-cool cycling as Nara Martins Ishikawa introduces the hottest new jerseys from around the world…
1. Maap, Women’s Field Team Jersey,
The colours on the Maap Field Team Jersey are super intense, boasting brilliant colour blocking, a fantastic fit, high moisture wicking and SPF+ 50. Awesome!
Price: £111.49 (approx)
2. Leave Pass, Women’s Bronze Jersey
One of my favourite jerseys is from Leave Pass, a lesser-known Australian brand. Their ethos is all about recognising that we all have to juggle responsibilities to fit in time on the bike, and “if you're only going to be out for a limited time, you should look the best”. They have a pre-order system which opens once a month with a 4-5 weeks turnaround, but as far as I am concerned, their jersey is well worth the wait.
Price: £126.88 (approx)
3. Canela, Pre-Venda
Canela.cc is a women's cycling blog created by Adriana Vojvodic to support and incentivise the growing women's cycling scene in São Paulo and throughout Brazil. They recently designed their first cycling cap, which featured painterly and playful patterns and colour, with their very first jersey using similar flourishes. Stunning!
Price: £52.61 (approx)
4. Tenspeed Hero, Women’s Race Fit Collage Jersey
The Tenspeed Hero Collage Jersey is insanely beautiful and the result of a cool collaboration with French architect Maud Glasel. It's got ventilation panels on the side, a snug race fit, longer sleeves and vibrant colours.
Price: £121.25 (approx)
I absolutely love Tenspeed Hero, so here’s another one from them - the Resort Stripes and Fade jersey. They mention it being their fall/cross jersey, but I reckon it would be a brilliant addition to any road biking wear in the summer too!
Price £113.11 (approx)
Machines For Freedom jerseys have always been a win for me as they’re made by women for women, so flatter every woman's body. They are close fitting, but still have great pockets that fit everything you need in when taking on a longer century ride. Plus they are super stretchy, so move with the body during the ride. I love this slick Element design, with the geo-fade print in cobalt and turquoise feeling fresh and uber original.
Another Machines For Freedom belter, the Avant print takes its inspiration from architectural sketches against a white background, with the result fresh and bright, with signature coral accents adding a pop of color to the mesh vents along the underarms as well as the zippers and pocket trim. Awesome.
Price: £128.47 (approx)
The Velocio ES jersey boasts a gorgeous print and colours, plus performance features for high output riding - fewer seams, a high tech denier gradient fabric for a streamlined fit, high breathability and slightly longer (short) sleeves. What’s not to love?!
Price: £153.28 (approx)
