I’m just going to say it: I love the Moxie Cycledelic jersey. I love how pretty it is, I love the smooth lines, and I love the fit. This jersey kept me cool and allowed me total freedom of movement on my bike.
When I first tried on my jersey I thought, “Wow.” I normally bike in baggy, loose-fitting moisture-wicking shirts. It’s been a long time since I’ve worn anything that fitted. Still, I liked the way it looked.
At first I thought the built-in sports bra was too snug, but after biking for a few minutes I adjusted to it and it didn’t hinder my breathing. It wasn’t uncomfortable either.
The first day I wore the jersey out I was by myself on some local trails. It was a cool morning so I had a long-sleeve shirt over it. Soon I warmed up enough to take off the long-sleeved layer; when I started biking again I couldn’t believe the difference! Maybe it was mental, but I felt like I had so much more freedom to move around. There was no clothing getting hung on my bike seat, no shirt flapping around…everything was snug. I honestly felt like I rode better that day because I had more mobility with a fitted jersey.
I worried the t-back and my Camelbak might not work well together, but I had no issues with rubbing or irritation. This Moxie jersey just stays put.
Of course, wearing something that shows off that much skin does make it important to be diligent with the sunscreen! Also, if you’re newer to biking or if you just crash a lot you might want something with more skin protection.
I’m already trying to decide which of Moxie’s other jersey designs I want to get next. Maybe it’s a placebo effect, but I feel like a better biker when I’m wearing a jersey like this.
Moxie jerseys have ergonomic seams, built-in sports bra with removable bra-cups, a 3-pocket design and, of course, moisture-wicking fabric. I never once felt sweaty. You can find their jerseys in a few stores throughout the country, or online here. They range in price online from $45-$58 plus shipping.
Thanks so much to Moxie for letting me try out this jersey!
