Reviewed: Hincapie Edge women’s jersey
The Edge embraces a racer cut but combines it with looser shoulder panels for improved freedom of movement. When riding upright on the hoods or on the tops, the sleeves flaps a bit in the wind, but when bent over in a low and aggressive position, the jersey fits snugly for an aerodynamic fit
Silicon grippers on the armbands and waist provide just the right amount of hold, keeping the jersey from riding up without squeezing or pinching. We also like the look and feel of the Edge’s collar. The low profile adds a stylish touch and it doesn’t rub our neck raw after a long day in the saddle.
The Edge’s materials are soft and feel great against the skin and the cut feels like a tailored fit. Three good-sized back pockets round out Hincapie’s new women’s jersey and they fit plenty of spare clothes — rain jacket, extra gloves, hat, and more — for a versatile short-sleeve option in warm and cooler temperatures alike.
