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.
Twin Six Freedom Machine Jersey
Twin Six's Freedom Machine jersey is a nice twist on the usual garish Old Glory jerseys out there. It makes its patriotic point subtly but still powerfully, in muted shades of white and grey. Also different from most flag jerseys is that Twin Six (a Minnesota company) manufactures the Freedom Machine right here in the U.S.A. It's the perfect top to slip on for the annual Fourth of July pre-BBQ group ride. [$80; Twin Six]
