Kitsbow Geysers' Road Bike Jersey - Short-Sleeve - Men's
Life in the saddle.
Two odd design choices are currently trending in the boutique jersey world: character-less solid black and obnoxiously loud floral prints. Kitsbow bucks them both with the short-sleeve Geysers' Men's Jersey. The Geysers' Jersey manages to combine distinctive colorways with a classic, unassuming aesthetic and incorporates the kind of thoughtful construction details that we expect from brands whose designs come to life in the saddle rather than the boardroom.
Kitsbow is known primarily for producing trail gear, but the merino/synthetic blend of the brand's first foray into skinny-tire kit dispels roadie doubts with breathability, moisture management, and a soft touch against the skin that makes us want to forgo base layers. The Geysers' microclimate is further vented with mesh inserts strewn strategically throughout. The materials conspire for a fit that's shaped, but not that we would call "aero race." It's for an athletic build — a cyclist who's in shape and takes their pedaling seriously but doesn't have to turn every outing into a half-wheeling study in passive-aggressive competition.
The jersey's details stress its pedigree as a serious cyclist who isn't interested in constantly establishing their dominance. The standard complement of three rear pockets is supplemented with a chest stow pocket and a weather-resistant rear zip pocket. That latter addition is especially welcome, as it protects things like emergency gas station snack funds from rain and rooster tails — though your cash may not fare as well when you forget about it and run it through the wash. Taped collar seams, which reduce chaffing, represent the classic Kitsbow touch, and the jersey is finished with reflective piping to help keep you visible on the ride home after evening intervals or a post-ride drink.
