Years from now we're going to look at cycling apparel and wonder how we got to the end of long training rides with any skin intact after suffering with sewn seams. The Hincapie Torino Short Sleeve Jersey uses welded seams to eliminate sewn ones that can chafe your skin like sandpaper on balsa wood. The cut is tapered and athletic, definitely a cut that leans toward pro-fit, though not as aggressively as some jerseys.The Torino Jersey is cut from Hincapie Aerator fabric, a super-soft and breathable fabric ideal for rides on hot days. While it offers enough elasticity to give you free movement on the bike, it's not so stretchy that the back of the jersey sags when you fill the pockets. The double weave of the material pulls moisture off of your body and to the outside of the fabric to keep you cool and dry. And despite its light weight, it offers a 30+ SPF for UVA and UVB protection. Hincapie VenTek mesh panels increase stretch and breathability in the around the arms and sides. The panels are laser-cut to keep them from fraying, and this high tech process is what makes the welded-seam construction possible.Three back pockets give great carrying capacity while a fourth, zippered pocket gives you a place to securely store important things like your ID or keys. Reflective accents grace the back pockets to keep you visible in low-light conditions.The Hincapie Torino Short Sleeve Jersey comes in three colors -- Fire, Navy, and White. It's available in five sizes from Small through XX-Large.

I bought one new in 1975 directly from Cortina Bicycles in NYC, the US importer at the time. My sole ride for about 15 years before getting a customer Marinoni. I have the frame repainted by CycleArts in the mid-80s, single color spray with no decals and more recently, contemplating doing a comple ... Read More »
