How To Pick the Correct Size Cycology Jersey

How To Pick the Correct Size Cycology Jersey

Everyone wants their riding jersey to fit properly and feel comfortable!

There is no standard sizing fit between cycling brands, so please use a measuring tape and our very convenient sizing tool on each product page. If you enter your actual body dimensions, the recommended size and fit should be extremely useful with your size selection.

To further assist you with sizing, we've included the garment measurements for our short sleeve performance jerseys below, so you can compare them to your favourite fitting cycling jersey.

HOW IT WORKS

Lay your favourite fitting cycling jersey flat, then measure the crucial areas: 

  • across the chest just under the armhole
  • the zipper length for the front
  • the back length from under the collar to the bottom of the hem.

Compare these to our men's and women's garment measurements below.

PERFORMANCE FIT CYCLING JERSEYS

Our men's and women's short sleeve cycling jerseys are a performance fit. These are made with great temperature regulating, very fine high-stretch materials. They're light as air and intended to be worn close to the body. Beautifully crafted and extremely comfortable to wear, created to fit snugly so that they breathe and move with the body.

This is a close-fitting jersey. If you are unsure about sizing or like a slightly looser fit, consider going up a size. We receive more returns from consumers who find the jerseys to be smaller than expected, so keep this in mind when selecting your size.

We offer other options to consider for those not into road cycling like our very popular MTB JerseyDesigned as a relaxed fit Jersey they are constructed from beautiful lightweight fabrics with built-in stretch and provide excellent breathability. As the day heats up the fabric will wick away sweat to ensure you're fresh on the way up and it's quick drying too, so you'll enjoy dry comfort as you flow back down the trail. The fit is relaxed but it's not too baggy, allowing you to move and react to the terrain without ever feeling restricted. The MTB specific cut can accommodate body amour and pads too, so you have a jersey that spans across disciplines. 

Or for something casual try our gravel shirt - this is great for a ride where you are going to stop in cafes (or pubs!) and want a more relaxed day on the bike. A high performance button up shirt made for gravel riding or perfect off the bike for casual wear. It stretches, breathes, has 2 side zip pockets and comes in our classic designs. A truly versatile garment.
