Softens the sting of sliding out.
Taking POC's Attention Visibility Interaction Protection (AVIP) concept to the next level, the Men's AVIP Ceramic Short-Sleeve Jersey employs ceramic panels along the hips, shoulders, and sleeves to reduce road rash and mitigate abrasive damage during a high-speed crash. This particular version sports long sleeves, which provides greater coverage from abrasion when you take an unexpected fall or slide out at higher speeds. It remains true to POC's AVIP series with its striking two-tone aesthetic for greater visibility, alongside reflective logos for safety in high traffic areas.
The ceramic panels are printed on, meaning they'll remain flexible and highly breathable, yet still provide heightened protection from abrasive slides on the pavement when you happen to take a nasty fall. A side benefit of these ceramic panels is the disrupted airflow from their textured surface, creating a small but noticeable increase in aerodynamic efficiency on the road. And because you'll likely be pushing yourself on the road, mesh ventilation panels are strategically placed underneath the arms for improved airflow and temperature regulation.

Love the fit and the colors to make yourself visible on the road. It is a bit warm, so I use it on mountain rides where it's going to be cooler.
