Long sleeve season is upon us, as the warmth of summer becomes almost a memory and leaves begin to fall. For cyclists, this is a time to celebrate: a new season with its new conditions, smells and landscapes. It's a chance to breathe in the crisp, clean air and get out onto the quieter roads whilst many recoil. For these new-found conditions, you're going to require a change in wardrobe - some key items that will take on the challenge of autumn just as you do. For this exact purpose, we've created the Girona Long Sleeve Jersey.
Getting thermal jerseys 'just right' is a balancing act between keeping you warm as you leave the door but not feeling clammy as you near the post-ride pub. To ensure the perfect combination of materials we've worked with the experts at Castelli and utilised a material they've developed especially for Team INEOS riders as they train. A lightly fleeced fabric that has just enough windproofing credentials, the right level of stretch, an allowance for airflow - but not too much - and a cut that feels just right. We want you to put this jersey on, head out the door and not give it another moments' thought.
The CHPT3 GIRONA collection uses a series of abstract patterns inspired by the Eiffel Bridge in Girona - a bridge built the same man responsible for giving Paris its Eiffel Tower. Noticing the light hitting the lattice bridge structure and the soft, intricate patterns created by the shadows cast upon the striking Fire Red wrought iron, we began creating layers of this pattern, eventually resulting in the abstract pattern found on the jersey.
We've used our 'JustRight' Fit that bridges the gap between race-fit and loose for the Girona Long Sleeve Jersey. We advise that you size up one size to ensure the correct airflow and for heavier-weight base layers that you might choose to ride in during the colder months.
