Race tech without being too racey.
Louis Garneau's Semi-Pro fit designation of the Sport Metz Jersey means that it retains technical features typically reserved for race jerseys, only in a more relaxed cut. For example, the Sport Metz uses both Pro Cool and Mesh construction, complete with cycling-specific designs like a dedicated empty-gel pocket.
Pro Cool panels use a small inner cell construction to enhance airflow and moisture management through a capillary effect. This allows the Sport Metz to dry very quickly so your core is comfortable throughout the ride. For additional hot-weather capability, Louis Garneau equips the jersey with cooling and breathable mesh panels.
These are located under the arms, and, because of its spandex content, the mesh not only provides high levels of breathability, but it also provides flexibility to the structure of the jersey. So, you'll enjoy effortless transitions from the drops to the hoods, without a hint of disagreement from the Sport Metz. The Pro Cool fabric also has UPF/SPF 50, while the mesh panels have less protection with a UPF/SPF of 20. This is due to their location, where enhancing air flow trumps sun protection.
And when you need to pull out all the cooling stops, you'll appreciate the Sport Metz's full-length zip, which will provide maximum ventilation during hard exertions. At the back of this jersey, three angled back pockets allow easy access when pedaling. And for your electronic devices, a dedicated multimedia pocket with headphone port keeps the music playing with snag-free internal cable routing.
Louis Garneau has also addressed the issue of the sticky empty gel packets that end up on the ground roadside by fitting the Sports Metz with an Enviro pocket. Essentially, this is a place to stash trash without making a mess. Completing the Sports Metz are reflective elements that enhance your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
The Louis Garneau Sport Metz Jersey is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Twilight Blue, and White.
