Kit so good...I own 10 of 'em!

This jersey is the Hincapie Velocity custom jersey but with Hincapie graphics. Team BMC will tell you that this is the jersey they wear but a close inspection of big race photos shows that they actually wear the Emergence jersey. However, it is still a top notch jersey. I own several of these jerseys of different vintages and all have proven to be extremely well made and very comfortable for the average (i.e. not 125 lb) rider.

The fit on this jersey is a “race” cut but you don’t have to be 6’ 4” and 145 lbs for the jersey to fit correctly. What I really like about the jersey is the longer sleeves. I have tried a number of jerseys with a standard length sleeve that rides up into your armpit when the body of the jersey fits correctly. The sleeves in this jersey do not do that.

Unlike the Equipe version of this kit – the same garment but with different graphics – there are no reflective logos or piping which has become a trademark of Hincapie Sportswear.

The graphics on this kit are sharp! The stock pictures that accompany the description here do not do them justice! They look much better in person. The reds are very rich – more like a crimson – and look good even when wet. These kits are much better looking than the Equipe graphics which are an identical garment. My only complaint is that there isn’t a version that is primarily white for those of us who live in warmer climates.

Overall, a very comfortable, well made kit.
