The graphics on the Twin Six Steep Jersey depict how we often wish we felt on long, hot climbs—to wit: weightless. And though we've never quite been able to self-sublimate and literally float up a climb, the jersey's graphics certainly take some of the sting out of two hours of 50rpm climbing. OK, it doesn't actually make climbing easier or less painful, but at least the graphics themselves are sublimated. So there's that.
Regardless of its inability to aid in solid-to-gas transformations, the Steep—like the rest of Twin Six's jerseys—is 100% produced in the US. 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 to keep you fueled as long as you remain in the solid state.
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.
