The better half.
In front of every good sprinter is a good leadout. This may take the form of a well-executed train of Italian gregarios working tirelessly for their team leader, or it may be replaced the enterprising, find-the-gaps scrappiness demonstrated by lone sprinters whose craftiness lets them benefit from the work of other teams' trains. (It seems these sprinters tend to be Aussies.) Either way, Twin Six's Leadout Jersey pays homage to the unsung hero of bunch sprints: the guys in the wind until it matters most. The jersey represents the chaotic mishmash of a sprint finale with a mash-up of colors and a peppering of polka dots.
Though we've cited potential Italian and Australian inspiration for the jersey's design, the material and construction are both 100% American. The jersey's material is breathable and lightweight, wicking moisture from your skin to keep you dry. The full-length zipper is hidden to maintain a classic look without sacrificing contemporary functionality, and the back includes a complement of three pockets for enough storage space for you to carry food and bottles to your sprinter or the excess baggage of stardom if you yourself are the team's prima donna.
Twin Six's jerseys fit between the super-small Italian brands and the looser cut of American mountain bike clothing. If you like a slim, race fit, go for your t-shirt size; for a more commodious, club-ride cut, size up. Either way, the updated sleeve length sits a bit longer, adding some contemporary style to Twin Six's alt-cycling designs.
