It’s still warm out there, so here is part two of our best summer cycling jerseys buyers guide.

Welcome back to the second instalment of the Wevelo guide to summer cycling jerseys.

A good summer cycling jersey can improve not just how you look on the bike but also how you feel. You’ll want something that’s tight fitting but comfortable enough to wear all day.

There are many types of kit to choose from, ranging from the most relaxed cut to the full-on race jersey that clings to your body offering aerodynamic benefits you might want when racing.

Most cycling jerseys will be made from quick wicking materials that are fast drying. The more you pay, the more advanced features you’ll find such as silicone grippers and aero materials to help you create less drag.

We’ve put together another five excellent summer cycling jerseys. Check them out, share the site then ride your bike!

Void Capsule Jersey

What they say

The Capsule Jersey, like our Print Jersey, is your go-to item to show you off as a fashion-conscious rider! Where the Print Jersey is where you will find staple styles from VOID, the Capsule Jersey is where you will find our other styles inspired by the Swedish fashion scene, to bring another type of fashion to cycling.

This year’s model is our best fitting jersey yet! We have looked at every panel and seam to make a jersey that is tailored to riding. The sizing is the same as the previous iterations of the jersey, but the difference on the bike is noticeable from the first ride. You will feel even more comfortable, especially when riding hard.

Key specifications

  • Quick drying and breathable fabric
  • Full zip with YKK lock zipper
  • Three pockets at back

Our verdict

Another company we’ve been posting a lot about on Instagram are Void Cycling. The Capsule Jersey is right up our street with its classic design and a wide range of colours. The jersey is cleverly put together with breathable mesh side panels and zip up pockets for valuables. The fit is more on the aero side so size up for a more relaxed fit.
