Even if you're brand new to the sport, other riders will come to you for sage advice and pearls of priceless wisdom when you wear Troy Lee Designs' Super Retro Jersey. The Super Retro is made with modern polyester mesh that allows air to flow through freely to keep you cool during hot summer rides, but has a throwback look that hearkens back to roots (well, probably before the roots) of mountain biking.
The long sleeves cover elbow guards and protect skin from the sun, and the elastic cuffs and collar keep the Super Retro fitting comfortabl. And the stripes? They make you faster.

Retro Jersey & Keeps Up With The Times
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
I'm 5'11" and roughly 175lbs. I was gifted an XL and its a bit big on me, but sized pretty true to an XL. If I were to buy this myself, would have likely bought a large. The yellow is a previous year's color, but the review stays true.
- I like the mesh's airflow. Its been great for hot summer rides when you want a long sleeve - bike parks, trails with overgrown bush, etc.
-Speaking of bike parks, it covers up and easily has room for body armor. It fits my Fox Launch Pro Elbow pads no problem. It is going to have a baggier sleeve fit, so if you're looking for fitted sleeves, this is not the jersey for you.
-I dig the retro vibes.
-Not sure if its just cause its an XL, but the neck is pretty loose. I list this as a con as I managed to have a bee fly in it during some bike park laps and sting my check.
-Little bit of chafing due to the mesh material.
Cool looking long sleeve jersey's for the win. Can't go wrong with this one!
