You don't want to dress like the abominable snowman when you're riding in blustery weather -- baselayers, armwarmers, jackets. Too many layers gets constrictive. At the same time, you want to stay warm. George Hincapie, who has collected years of riding in all conditions, knows the best ways to stay warm and the Velocity Competitive Cyclist Long Sleeve Jersey is evidence. The Velocity was originally designed to be worn during the cold Belgian spring classics -- where wind, rain, and sleet pelt the riders. And while many of us avoid long sleeve jerseys due to their less-than-optimal fit, Hincapie's Velocity is designed with all of the same features and fit as its short sleeve Velocity Plus. The entire jersey was constructed from Super Roubaix fleece, a top-tier tech fabric that features a warp-knit construction, giving the material a natural stretch.

However, the precise brushing process is what contributes most to its warmth. After the dying process, dedicated machines brush the inner-lining to provide a high, fleecy, warming loft.The fit of the Velocity is designed to work specifically with the movement of cycling. As such, when you stand you may notice that the front of the jersey is a bit high. The jersey's cut was designed to reduce fabric bunching around your stomach while you ride. Additionally, the lengthened back of the jersey keeps it from riding up while bent over the handlebars. The sleeves are long enough to not expose your wrists and the full-length zipper makes it easy to don and doff. Three back pockets hold all of your riding essentials. Reflective strips have been added to the sleeves for added visibility when rid...
