If you're breaking into the race scene and aren't lucky enough to have had team kit bestowed upon you quite yet, Scott's RC Pro Tec Jersey can help assuage some of your worries about ruining your favorite kit in a high speed crash. Let's face it, groups of inexperienced riders dropping into tight corners of a criterium sometimes ends poorly, even if you know how to hold your line and don't mind jostling a few shoulders. The last thing you want to worry about as you're looking up at the sky and taking a physical inventory is whether or not you'll have kit to race in for the rest of the weekend. Scott uses stretchy, moisture wicking polyester for the jersey's main body, then reinforces the shoulders and sleeves with ITD ProTec fabric, a blend of synthetic fibers with an higher breakage strength from added carbon yarns and ceramic printing. According to Scott, this improves the jersey's ability to handle crashes, specifically on asphalt, without inhibiting your range of motion in the race inspired jersey. Scott also added a water repellent rear pocket to keep essentials dry as you sweat, along with mesh accent to allow air to move through the jersey. Reflective accents ensure you'll stay visible on and off the course on the days your group gets slotted for an evening start time.
