The best riding apparel is the type that you forget you're wearing during your ride. Binding, bunching, and clamminess are the mortal enemies of any piece of cycling gear. The Gore Bike Wear Countdown 2. 0 jersey gives each of these problems the stinkeye, then beats it into blubbering submission, all without you even knowing that a battle is taking place all around you. Binding and bunch are taken care of with the Countdown 2. 0's one two punch of stretch fabric and a loose, comfortable fit. The main body fabric is made with 20% elastane, so it stretches as your body moves without binding or reaching its limit. Unlike many jerseys, the Countdown is built with an active, loose fit that allows cooling air to move freely through the jersey to keep you from overheating. The fabric is moisture wicking, as well, to eliminate uncomfortable clamminess, even late in your ride. All of this lovely, synthetic goodness is held together with outward facing flatlock stitching reduce hot spots and chafing.The Countdown 2. 0 is made with two secure, zippered pockets at the back for your I. D., snacks, music, or whatever else you bring to make your ride more pleasant. Gore also wrapped the jersey in reflective trim to make you more visible in evening traffic.
