A few teammates and I recently rode in the Hotter'N Hell 100 Century ride in Wichita Falls, Tx (8/25/19). Texas in August is hot and windy so I knew I'd need a jersey that had great wicking ability and lightweight fabric to keep me cool. I've been wearing Fusion apparel for about 2 years now and the SLi Hot Conditions Cycle Jersey did not disappoint. Temps that day rose to 102 degrees with 20+mph winds - it was hot and miserable. This jersey kept me cool and comfortable all the way to the finish!!!
The front of this jersey is mesh fabric, allowing oncoming wind to cool you as you ride, while the back is a tighter weave providing sunblock protection (and white fabric is cooling). The underarms are an even wider mesh for cooling your underarms. The three pockets on the back are suitable to filling with nutrition, a water bottle, phones, etc. It’s a snug fit for me in medium, but the fabric is very stretchable, so when I’m over in aero there isn’t any pull under the arms or on the back. Highly recommend to pair with the SLi Cycling Bib Shorts!
I have been training and competing for 21 years, so I have spend a lot time on the bike. The SLi bibs and jersey are by far the best kit I have ridden. The jersey was lite and breathable. The bibs are breathable with a compression fit which translates to performance.
I received this jersey just in time for the hottest weather in California this year. It made a huge difference on my first ride - I was able to stay cool and feel the breeze through the vented fabric. The color, the fabric and the lightweight all made the difference in hot and humid weather. Definitely recommend!
I have equipped my corporate tri team with fusion gears and everyone on the team loved the product. We bought the fusion SLI tri kits
