A noble jersey.
If Gore Bike Wear's Xenon 3.0 Men's Jersey was actually an elemental gas, its atomic number would be one, not because it would have a single proton in its nucleus, but because it would be the best noble gas. Forgive the tortured hypothetical — how would you even rate gases, anyway? — but don't ignore the Xenon 3.0's race-ready design, which fits like a second skin to keep the air flowing smoothly over your body and your muscles comfortably supported.
Excellent breathability is an assumed feature in top-shelf jerseys like the Xenon, but Gore took ventilation to the next level by incorporating a series of strategic mesh panels to increase airflow in key areas. The full-length zipper is also semi-locking, so it stays put when you open up for a little extra cooling on a tough climb, and the ergonomic racing collar sits comfortably whether you're fully zipped or flapping wide open. Bonded seams and hems give the Xenon a friction-free, sleek, and streamlined finish.
Gore didn't focus on fit, shape, and material at the cost of functional features. For starters, it includes a three-compartment zippered back pocket for water bottles, energy gels, and a wind layer, and integrated 360-degree reflective details so you don't have risk being run off the road when your ride stretches into the twilight hours.
