Sportful Bodyfit Pro Evo Jersey - Men's
Designed for the pros.
Sportful designs the Men's Bodyfit Pro Evo Jersey to excel during warmer training rides and racing by utilizing advanced materials and refining the fit, creating a jersey the checks off all the boxes serious cyclists seek when shopping for clothing. Sportful works with professional teams such as Bahrain Merida and Bora Hansgrohe and they help by providing valuable feedback to the brand on their requirements needed while racing at the highest level. The lighter weight fabric provides plenty of breathability and ventilation helping to keep you cooler on long summer climbs while wicking up perspiration and transferring it from your skin to the jersey's surface so it can evaporate and dry quickly. If it's good enough for Sagan and Nibali to wear during the grand tours, you can bet it's fast, cool, and comfortable for the rest of us.
One of our favorite features is the minimal stitching on the collar that creates a clean look, and we think that after you try it on and go for a ride, you'll appreciate its friction and chafing reducing on the neck keeping you more comfortable and better able to focus on the ride. Just down from the collar is the YKK Vislon full-length zipper letting you adjust the amount of cooling during extended climbs. On the shoulders, Sportful employs its highly elastic Aero stretch material that creates an excellent fit while in the cycling position and eliminates any bunching or flapping that could disrupt the aerodynamics. Finishing up the arm openings are a lie flat elastic cuff with laser cut finish and light silicone keeping them comfortably, yet firmly, in place.
Around the waist, stretch fabric and an elastic hem with silicone gripper fit your torso just right, while staying in that position throughout the ride without restricting movement. The rear of the Bodyfit Pro Evo has 3 pockets for hauling snacks, your phone, and flat fixing material. Finally, three rear pockets offer ample space for extra gear and food while the reflective accents help you remain visible in low light conditions.

- Q & A
Great summer jersey
- Fit: Runs small
Sportful is the venerable cycling sportswear company based in the foothills of the Dolomiti in Northern Italy. Cool. And they are apparently something like the parent (sister?) company of Castelli.
In any case, Sportful kit is awesome. Although less well known in the US, Sportful is well known and respected in Europe, supplying many pro teams (Bora-Hansgrohe, Fassa Bortolo, Trek-Segafredo, Bahrain-Merida). Peter Sagan has worn Sportful kit for years. As did Alberto Contador before.
In my exp, the best things that Sportful makes are bibshorts (bodyfit pro with their excellent TC Pro chamois), jerseys, and socks.
Anyway, this Bodyfit Pro jersey is fantastic. Beware: it is tailored for the target rider: fit, athletic cyclists.
Very high quality and QC overall. Sportful kit is made in Europe (EU), not in Asia somewhere like most other brands (including Castelli).
Sizing: Be sure to size up +1 from your normal street size. Sportful/Italian sizing -is- different. Still, it will be snug, as it is supposed to be.
Does this jersey have an SPF rating?
