How to find the perfect road cycling jersey for you

Another consideration is sleeve length. It may seem bonkers to buy a short sleeve jersey in the midst of winter, but it’s a versatile item that can be teamed with either arm warmers when you set off with a nip in the air, or combined with a long sleeved baselayer when you know it’s going to stay cold all day.

If you regularly ride in colder climes then having a long sleeve jersey in your cycling wardrobe can’t harm.

Whether long or short, take a look at the construction of the sleeve – is it a raglan or set-in design?

Raglan sleeves provide a nicer fit in motion, are shaped like a triangle that starts at the neck and wraps around the shoulder and upper arms, showcased by the red jersey in the image above. Set-in sleeves are designed like those on a traditional t-shirt.
