Transitioning into or out of shoulder season rides can often bring fickle weather but with jerseys like the AV Versa Short-Sleeve Jersey from Giordana, it can help make the transition easier. Often a favorite worn by the pros on Astana and Mitchelton-Scott during the classics and while training, the AV Versa Short Sleeve Jersey is a super lightweight top with some wind blocking protection up front to keep your core warm. Pair it with a baselayer and some arm warmers and you'll be ready for a wide variety of conditions. The lightweight, tightly woven exterior fabric helps to block wind and precipitation while providing a durable rip proof surface and allows you to take this short sleeve jersey into conditions that usually warrant longer sleeves or more layers. That lightweight thermal fabric is bonded to an eVent DV Stretch membrane keeping your core comfortably warm without impeding your range of motion on the bike and the entire jersey receives a DWR treatment preventing it from soaking out causing a chilling effect. Up front, a wind resistant zipper keeps drafts and chills from sneaking through and getting you cold while the microfiber fleece inside the collar keeps your neck and throat cozy. The arms are slightly longer and the openings receive thermo bonded cuffs to hold them in place without excessive constraint. On the back, the three pockets are reinforced with gussets to prevent sagging and they get drainage holes keeping rain from pooling up inside. On their tops they get a lip, keeping items in over rough roads. Below the pockets is a Pixel reflective tail that works in conjunction with the reflective details on the drive side armband for increased visibility.
