Cycling apparel has immeasurably improved over the last few years, but it can still be tricky to hit the right style note out on the road. There's always the option of snatching up a sponsor-festooned replica team Tour de France jersey, but that opens you to snickers of derision if you can't pedal like Chris Froome. Lucky for you, we've done the hard work and dug up a slew of jerseys that look good, perform well, and, best of all, will make you stand out from the boring lycra-clad crowd.
Rapha Super Lightweight Jersey
Tempting as it may be to go topless on a hot humid day on the road, tradition dictates that riding without a jersey just isn't done (plus, where will you stash your energy bars?). The Super Lightweight jersey from high-end British brand Rapha is made from proprietary fabrics designed to keep you cool, plus it has ventilating mesh side panels. Like all things Rapha it also looks classically cool (as in hip, not in temperature). [$160; Rapha]
