Year round cycling demands a varied wardrobe, able to adapt fluidly to daily changes in conditions. Fall and spring are especially problematic in this regard, as just a day or two can separate weather that requires thermal insulation and water resistance and weather that only calls for a jersey and warmers. Hincapie Sportswear's Men's Long Sleeve Vantage Jersey is built to fit into such a volatile climate, and you'll find that its blend of insulation and breathability are just the right mix for most fall and spring riding. The Vantage is stitched up with panels of QuadroHot fabric, a material made from hollow core yarn. The empty center that gives hollow core fibers their name effectively increases the insulation of QuadroHot without a corresponding increasing in volume, so it's more insulating than a fabric this light really has any business being. It's also moisture wicking and fast drying, which are as important in keeping you warm as the material's insulating properties. As evidenced by the, um, passionate Es Pasion line, Hincapie Sportswear isn't afraid to take a leap on aesthetics. While not as distinct as the Es Pasion, kit from the Vantage line features colors and patterning that stand out from the sponsor festooned race kits or ubiquitous, non distinct black that most cycling clothes default to. The jersey's long sleeves and hem are kept in place courtesy of elastic inserts and Hincapie's GelGripper, respectively. Three rear pockets provide enough cargo space to carry tubes, CO2, and the gloves, headband, and toe covers you'll no doubt need to put on during some rides due to the above mentioned volatility. The Vantage also incorporates reflective stripes on the sleeves where a short sleeve would terminate to help keep you visible in low light conditions. The Hincapie Sportswear Men's Long Sleeve Vantage Jersey is available in five sizes ranging from Small to XX Large, and in the colors Blackwhite, Claysummit, Harborlime, and Redwhite.
