In a world of blinding colors, migraine-inducing jerseys-cum-billboards, and more-is-better design, Nalini's Raiale Men's Cycling Jersey stands out for its simplicity. Solid, muted colors paradoxically help you stand out from the pack and disguise the Raiale's classic array of features, like a triple back pocket for tools and gels, a dropped back hem with a non-slip silicone gripper, and anatomical sleeve construction that won't chafe or hamper your mobility.
Simplicity, of course, can't come at the cost of functionality. The Raiale is made of Hot Moa Light fabric, a lightweight and soft synthetic that moves moisture quickly away from your skin for top-shelf wicking and breathability. It's stretchy, too, so you'll have a slim fit without the eyesores that are present on many well-fitting jerseys.

Was a little disappointed in the fit. Along the chest, there's a band of fabric between upper chest and neck that fits oddly. Of course...it would be my body, but none of my other jerseys fit me this way. Weird thing is that the zipper is metal, but the zipper is plastic. Not sure about its potential longevity. well, with Competitive Cyclist's return policy, I will give it a chance... Maybe I'll like it more as I use it...
