Primal has built up a strong reputation since it started over 20 years ago, and with such useful and attractive jerseys as the Ava in its lookbook, it’s easy to see why. There are two things that make this jersey great. First is the SpeedPro fabric it’s made from, which is extremely good at wicking away moisture and keeping you at a constant body temperature. The second is the cut – there’s no elastic in the waistband or sleeves so it won’t do any unsightly digging in or riding up (two of the most unflattering consequences of so much cycle wear). To cement its reputation, Primal has added an invisible full-length zip and three rear pockets.
