Troy Lee De­signs Ruckus jersey £54.99

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

When it comes to style, fit and feel, the Ruckus is a hard jersey to beat, though not ev­ery­one will be into the price. While we were a lit­tle du­bi­ous about the three-quar­ter-length sleeves ini­tially, we like the fact that they can be rolled up and will ac­tu­ally stay put while rid­ing. They’re also just about baggy enough to fit over low-pro­file el­bow pads. There are two zipped pock­ets on the back, where you can stash a car key and some cash with­out is­sue. A phone will fit too, though the added weight made the jersey bounce around a bit too much for our liking. A de­cent-sized glasses wipe rounds things out nicely. Al­though the fab­ric is rel­a­tively thick, the Ruckus wicks sweat well enough for that not to be too much of an is­sue, though it does take a while to fully dry out. The plus side is that it’ll shrug off bram­ble snags with­out tear­ing to shreds. When it comes to un­der­stated good looks, it’s eas­ily one of the nicest jer­seys out there.
