Jennifer may have found her new favourite MTB jersey, the Race Face Kyber.

The Race Face Kyber Women’s Jersey is a funky, comfortable and flattering lightweight top that is the perfect compromise between racy and baggy.

As someone who prefers close-fitting, functional Lycra I wasn’t sure if I was ready to go hip and baggy. The Kyber Jersey was enough to convert me and kept me cool and comfortable on a summer evening thrash around the forest. The Repreve¨ moisture wicking fabric does its job, and the slim fit allows a free flow of air to your skin - while still being flattering and aerodynamic.

The three-quarter length sleeves are just the right length - so don’t snag on your gloves or cover your watch - and flair out to allow room for elbow pads. Stretch mesh side panels offer additional venting, as well as a ‘body con’ effect of making you look slimmer round the middle.

Nice touches include a hidden stash pocket with a faux suede pocket bag that doubles as a goggle wipe, and ‘go-faster’ stripes down your spine and around the top of your right arm - handy if you get caught out cycling back in the gloom. They also look cool.

As if this wasn’t good enough, you will feel even better knowing that the jersey incorporates recycled fibre, supplied by Unifi USA, derived from post-consumer and post-industrial waste - as well as being quick-drying and SPF 50.
