The Bellwether Criterium Jersey is very similar to the company's Pro Mesh jersey in several respects, although it comes in a more aesthetically conservative package, which is exactly what many riders are looking for. A simple monochromatic design characterizes the Criterium jersey's appearance a refreshingly simple take on an often overdone piece of cycling apparel. The Criterium also features the same club type fit of the Pro Mesh jersey, making it more generous in cut than typically tight race ready jerseys. The primary difference between the Criterium and the Pro Mesh, however, is the Criterium's lack of TechMesh paneling. This subtraction means the jersey doesn't breathe quite as well as the Pro Mesh, but for more moderate climates that may be just what you're looking for. The Criterium also features the same non elastic sleeve bands for a more relaxed fit on the arms, three open elastic pockets in back, and a full length front zipper.
