Whilst long sleeve jerseys are good for keeping a bit warmer, they also offer more protection if we’re unfortunate enough to fall off. Although it’s not all about protection, long sleeve jerseys are great for sticking on over armour, or for some extra comfort if you want something loose fitting when you’re out on the trails. Here are our top five jerseys that look good and are specifically designed with women in mind.
