With a claimed weight of 100 grams, the perforated polyester fabric on Velocio’s Ultralight Link Jersey creates a very fine, highly breathable mesh that dries quickly, making it great for especially sweltering days. The aesthetics are equally appealing with a subtle print that adds interest to the rich jewel tone of the jersey.
The body-hugging race fit is cut for a cycling position. An elastic hem with silicone grip sits at the rider’s natural waist. The length is comfortable with bibs, but if you are in the no-bibs camp, it may feel a bit short in the front. While the silicone grip did help, I still found myself pulling the hem down once or twice as the elastic worked its way towards my ribcage while riding with empty pockets.
Velocio’s sleeves hit about mid-biceps with a clean, basic hem — no elastic or silicone grip. Keeping with the race cut, they are snug but stay in place without any binding or pinching.
The low-profile collar is a nice touch since the last thing I want on a hot ride is fabric around my neck. Three pockets, a color-matched full-length zipper, and subtly placed reflective tabs add to the overall functionality and sleek look of the Ultralight Link jersey.
