The Gore Bike Wear Contest Full Zip Short-Sleeve Jersey is streamlined but not skin-tight, making it sporty enough to race, yet comfortable enough for your long training rides. It has a full-length front zipper that allows for unlimited ventilation and makes it easier to put on and take off. The breezy mesh inserts are made of a nylon/spandex blend, which adds to the conforming but flexible fit of this jersey.

The zipper is a semi-locking design, so it will stay put once you've chosen how far to unzip. There are three pockets in back, which taper on the sides so you can access your energy bars without straining. An elastic gripper on the lower hem ensures that the jersey won't ride up. Flat-lock seams glide over your skin, friction-free. Reflective piping on the back and reflective accents on the front and back logos ensure visibility while on light-deprived rides.

The Gore Bike Wear Contest Full Zip Short-Sleeve Jersey comes in sizes Small through XX-Large. It's available in five color options: Azur Blue/white, Black/white, Lemon/white, Pool Blue/white, Red/white, and White/black.

  • Reflective piping increases your visibility when you rides head into dusk
  • Mesh panels increase breathability
  • Partially elastic hem gripper keeps everything in place

Light and Breathable

    This jersey is a good lightweight jersey. Stays in place, breathes well, and is pretty comfortable to the skin. I would recommend this to anyone starting out in cycling and those that want a good jersey for a decent price.

    The sizing is comparable to that of other brands. I am often between a Large and a Medium T-shirt and found the same fit in this jersey to be true.

    The perfect summer jersey!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This jersey is an amazing value. I own over 20 different cycling jersies (inclucing the Gore Xenon 2.0 Jersey which costs twice as much), and this one is my hands-down favorite for warm-weather riding.

    Why? AWESOME ventilation. Mesh panels are perfectly placed - this jersey stays dry and airy even when temps soar above 100 degrees here in the Sierra Foothills. I am a high-sweat-rate rider, and in over 30 years of competitive riding, I have never had anything that transports moisture so well.

    Other benefits of note:

    Pockets are well placed, and there are no silly, unserviceable zippered compartments that require two hands to open while on the bike or to harbor mold on the washline.

    I LOVE the collar that tapers down to the neck zipper. Pros tend to wear high-collared jersies, but that is because that collar is billboard space for sponsors. I own several high-collared jersies for cold-weather use, but unless you ride around with the jersey zipped all the way up in the summer, that extra collar is going to just flap around in the wind and chafe or annoy.

    Only caveat: this jersey breathes so well , that when climbing in hot & dry conditions with little wind, you may find yourself pouring water down your back for additional cooling. This is a tradeoff I'm willing to take for a jersey that never leaves you with a clammy belly on long descents.

    Fit: I am 6'1", 155lbs , 40" chest, with an athletic build and muscular arms. The Medium gives me a perfect, race-ready fit with zero puckering or material to flap in the wind. If you are a bigger build you'll want to size up to the Large.
