OVERVIEW: The Summit Aero has been designed for those who want the very best in fabrics and design in a next-to-skin aerodynamic fitting jersey. With three extra-wide rear pockets with expanding, bottom bellows and a zippered valuables pocket, this jersey is an excellent choice for racing conditions and all-day, endurance adventures alike. We developed it with the discerning rider in mind who wants the ultimate in breathability, performance and comfort.
"The Pactimo Men's Summit Aero SS Jersey is supposed to offer the ultimate in breathability, performance and comfort, and it certainly lives up to the hype. I've been surprised to discover it's made from recycled materials too, given the fabric's pleasing feel. Sizing is accurate and the medium was right for me in every respect: plenty of room around the shoulders, sensible length in the sleeves, yet not too long in the body. As the Aero name suggests, it's a racing-snakes cut."

FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION:
Recycled Fabric: As part of an ongoing effort to reduce our carbon footprint, the development team searched high and low for the finest, high-performance fabric that was manufactured from recycled materials. The Italian-made, Borghini fabric used in Summit jerseys met the needs in every way. It is lightweight, wicking, durable, stretchy and 100% recycled.
Raw Edge: A raw edge cut sleeve is a thing of beauty. It's a seamless marriage between your arm and the sleeve, enhancing both comfort and aerodynamic performance. And, it looks elegant.
Hexagonal Mesh: We used a hexagonal mesh in strategic locations not only because it has a stunning appearance, but because it offers exceptional breathability, facilitates stretch and reduces the weight of the garment.
Semi-Auto Locking Zipper: Rounding out the little details is the use of a YKK semi-auto lock zipper, which features a textured rubber pull for better gripping. The biggest advantage of a locking zipper is the ability for the wearer to singlehandedly unzip and open their jersey for venting. Merely flip the pull up to unlock the zipper. Then, with one hand, the jersey can be pulled open. Flip the pull back down to lock the zipper pull in place.
