Cycling jerseys put up with a lot. Exposed to rain, road grime, energy gels and the potent sweat of the Mamil. Usually worn once then washed and worn again because usually after one hard ride the jersey needs dealing with at arms length. This shortens the life of any garment but Polygiene claim to have solved the problem and with Maloja providing one off test pieces I decided to see if they were right.
Santini Cycling Wear, looking forward to the renewed partnership with the UCI for the next four years, chooses to produce the UCI World Champion Jersey using Polartec 100% recycled fabric.
