Need For Speed.
Capo's Thermo Roubaix material has been a revelation for us when it comes to winter long-sleeve jerseys. The highly technical fabric provides excellent lightweight insulation with an ultra-soft feel. As purveyors of all things fast, we can't help but be inspired by the pattern of this particular jersey. The Le Mans Roubaix Long-Sleeve Jersey just so happens to check off all the things important that we look for in a jersey: fabric, fit, and aesthetics.
Thermo Roubaix is a hollow-core microfiber material that allows the jersey to be lightweight and stretchy, offer excellent breathability, and transfer moisture. These traits are essential to staying comfortable when it is cool out and worn with a base layer or under a jacket. This jersey is made-in-Italy and gets the requisite three rear pockets for toting food and extra gear and a full-length YKK zipper and lockable puller for personalized climate control. An elastic gripper at the hem keeps the jersey solidly in place as you transition from the tops to the hoods and the drops.
As much as we love the material, the graphical treatment is really what grabbed our attention. The Le Mans themed patterns hit a sweet spot with our non-cycling sports obsessions, watching 24-hour endurance auto races. Le Mans is more or less the internal combustion equivalent of a grand tour. We can only guess that the colors and shapes are similar to that of what a driver sees as the track goes blurring by, and it certainly adds a splash of color to the much-needed world of black cycling jerseys. Tonal reflective logos help with visibility so cars on the track, ahem road, can see you in low light.
