OVERVIEW:The Alpine Thermal RT Jersey is one of the most versatile garments we manufacture. Alone it performs well in temperatures into the 4's, with a gilet and base layer you can easily get down into the -1's. Reflective Technology (RT) on the back and arms makes this jersey perfect for early mornings and low-light winter rides, and the 3 full-size, and single zippered pocket make it ideal commuting.
"The Alpine jersey uses a decent amount of reflective light strips on the arms, shoulder and waist grippers to highlight exactly where you are when there’s no sun to see you by, without ever being overbearing. With a soft fleece lining, it’s perfect for winter, serving us well even when temperatures dropped to freezing – we only had to resort to a rain cape if things got wet. Ultimately, this worked superbly for every dry ride, which meant no extra clothing. A full winter-ready bit of kit."
"The Alpine Thermal RT Jersey is the latest to really impress. The fit is slim and spot on and the winter fabric keeps you very comfortable across a broad range of temperatures."
FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION: The highly breathable Ardénte Winter fabric provides a soft, brushed-back layer of warmth against your body; insulating you against the cold while transferring sweat away from your body as your core temperature rises during exertion. Continuing our passion for visibility on the road in low-light conditions, we have incorporated Reflective Technology into key areas of the garment. This revolutionary fabric has refractive elements impregnated directly into the cloth that “explode” with brightness when illuminated by exposure from direct light such as a car's headlights. Ergonomic shaped cuffs, a brushed thermal collar and zipper wind flap ensure warmth retention.
