To help you get started, I want to share some of my favorites that I’ve come across. This is no means a full list of what is out there, but still a great place to get started if you’re trying to stop wearing boring cycling clothing.

I swear he wears things just so people will look at him funny. It is good for a laugh though. And if you are the same way, then you can find plenty of great cycling clothing to help you keep up that persona.

So, give them a look over and see if you can find anything else that meets your level of crazy. You can click on the images below to see more options as well.
These are a few of my current favorites. It is also worth noting that some of these come in a long sleeve version, if that is important to you. Personally, I prefer having long sleeves on my jerseys as I get sunburned pretty quickly when I am out in the summer.
Best Unique Cycling Jerseys I’ve Seen
Now that I have shown you some of the shirts that I am a big fan of, I want to share just a few more with you. These are the more unique designs that I have seen and they are pretty freaking cool if you ask me. So, if you’re on the look out for something that will really make you stand out from the rest of the cyclists on the road, consider wearing one of these cool cycling shirts.
I really enjoy that cool map design one, but the Los Muertos one really intrigues me. Primal makes a LOT of cycling jerseys with really unique designs. If you want something that really makes you stand out, then definitely take a look at all the different designs that Primal offers right now. You will not be disappointed by what you find.
And if you’re new to buying biking jerseys, then remember that you want to get a fit that is a bit on the snug side for better aerodynamics. Definitely do not get something that is loose fitting or baggy for your rides. Going out on your bike in biking clothes that are too big is definitely a sign of a noob cycler, so best to not do this.
When in doubt about what size to get for a proper fit, check to see if there is a list of sizes and measurements from the manufacturer. By doing this, you get to be certain that you are ordering something that offers a perfect fit every time. Or, head down to a local bike gear shop and try on a few different sizes that are made by different brands and take notes on what is the best fit for you in each brand. Just like regular clothes, you will likely end up needing a different size for a few different brands. That is why it is so important to check those measurements for each size.
And once you get your spiffy new cycling gear, get out there on those roads and show off those new threads!
Benefits of Cycling Jerseys
A lot of people wonder why so many people riding bikes are wearing cycling jerseys instead of an ordinary t-shirt. For those taking the occasional bike ride, they probably won’t invest in any cycling gear. For those more serious about the sport who are looking to get frequent and healthy exercise, participate in races, or even go on a tour, a good cycling jersey is highly recommended.
The fit of regular clothing is all wrong for the true cyclist. The fit is too loose and garments have a tendency to flap about in the wind. Distractions such as this should be avoided for safety reasons. Another problem with regular clothing is that when you are riding in high temperatures, a sweaty feeling can cause a sense of discomfort. On the flip side of the coin, low temperatures can cause severe chills and the possibility of hypothermia. These jerseys have been made to help control the temperature so you have a more comfortable and relaxing ride.
Since cycling jerseys are specifically designed for the comfort of bike riders, the difference is tremendous. First, the shoulders have a cut that is much wider because your arms are in a position that requires better movement. Even the sleeves have been designed so they fit better when you are leaning forward. They also have reflective spots so that when you are riding at night, the people driving in their cars can easily see you. Comfort and safety meet in the design of a cycling jerseys.
The fabrics of these jerseys are made to stretch, and the amazing part is that after you have worn it for a period of time, the jersey will reflect your shape. Most of the jerseys you will come across have back pockets resting lower down on the jersey. This is to provide you with a place to keep any snacks or specialized drinks for energy with you while you are riding. The access to these items is easy and it is also a great place to store a mobile or any music you like to listen to as you ride.
Jerseys are available in a lot of different styles and designs. There are different jerseys designed for both women and men in an attractive assortment of colors. Cotton is a good looking fabric, but unfortunately cotton tends to get wet when you sweat and does not hold the perspiration well.
The nylon jerseys combine spandex and a type of microfiber material. They absorb moisture quite well and will leave you with a feeling of comfort. The fabric will fade over time due to the inability to hold onto dye, but the jersey will last for a very long time.
Polyester jerseys will absorb moisture better than the other materials and even when it is wet, you will still feel comfortable. The material is also very soft. This material will not affect allergies and does not hold onto odors. These jerseys are expensive but for the true cyclist, worth every penny.
There are a lot of cyclists who refuse to wear wool because they believe it to be rough and abrasive. This is untrue with the jerseys made from merino wool. They are so soft and extremely comfortable. They also will not affect allergies and do not hold onto odors. These jerseys are expensive as well.
Whatever type of cycling jersey you decide to purchase, you will find more enjoyment in riding. Looking good, feeling great and having fun is what this sport is all about.
