To have, or have not.
Upgrading your training kit takes a technical turn with Louis Garneau's Elite M2 RTR Jersey, which is constructed with five different fabrics jockeying to wick moisture and follow your body movements as quickly as possible while you ride. Overall, the jersey adopts a slim, rather than painted-on race fit, still contoured and able to follow body movements with its high Lycra content but not so tight that it can't be taken out on an easy evening spin. Though portions of the Elite M2 are dark in color, it still makes a valuable companion on hot, sunny days with its all-over coldblack coating, which equips the jersey to reflect, rather than absorb, UV rays.
Garneau doesn't skip adding a host of thoughtful features to the Elite M2 RTR, and its attention to detail shows. The longer, "aero"-inspired sleeves employ sleek laser-cut hems that allow the fabric to stay in place as you move around without pinching or chafing, and the standard three rear pockets at the back of the jersey have been angled to make their contents more easily accessible from the saddle. For the days you forget to bring along a small plastic bag to protect your phone from sweat on your ride, you'll be able to store your phone or other electronics safely in the jersey's additional, double-walled pocket. The rear hem is finished with a lightweight, flexible gripper to make sure the rear of the jersey doesn't ride up as you shift in the saddle, and reflective accents help you stay visible to motorists when your ride extends into the low-light hours.

Easy to love

This jersey is amazingly versatile: aero fit for normal people, aero fabric on strategic areas, well vented fabric on appropriate areas, and reflective fabric on the back. This is the best summer jersey I have ever owned.
Great summer jersey

Very cool summer jersey. Medium size is a nice race fit for me at 6'2" and 185 lb.
