Award winning, celebrated and sold out in short order last season, Velocio tested the Radiator Mesh in the most oppressive heat and humidity (New England designed). The Radiator Mesh Jersey performs when rides are otherwise postponed. Itâs namesake is derived from the magical fabric used across the jersey front - Polartec Delta, a complex knit made with Tencel that actively cools you as you move through the air.
Updated for 2019 with a new version of their perforated mesh fabric on the sleeves and back, which is now 100% recycled and provides SPF30 sun protection.
Muggy mid summer. Desert high heat. Unbearable hotness. This is the jersey that goes beyond any other. Constructed using two fabrics, the secret of the Radiator comes from Polartecâs proprietary Delta fabric that, true to its name, turns the jersey into a radiator for riding. 3D knit mesh construction is used with Tencel, a sustainable fiber derived from wood cellulose with a similar hand feel to bamboo. The result is unrivaled comfort in the hottest days of the cycling season.Â
Ultralight weight and super soft hand feel give this jersey an almost t-shirt like quality, yet still provides a supportive and streamlined fit for on the bike performance.Â
When nothing else can keep you cool, the Radiator Mesh Jersey is proven to be cooler than no jersey at all. Pick the hottest day. Pedal through it.
