Why We Built The 1X Jersey

We demand a lot from our clothing when taking to the trails, so we designed the 1X Jersey specifically to manage temperature regulation on lengthy singletrack and gravel rides during the warmer months. The mesh underarm panels help release body heat when you’re pushing pace on your post-work XC loop, and the moisture-wicking fabric helps prevent you from feeling clammy on late evening descents when the temp starts to drop.

  • Cross-country jersey for extended trail and gravel ventures
  • Three-pocket layout keeps your nutrition and layers close by
  • Active fit runs small, sizing up is recommended
  • Silicone hem keeps the jersey in place through undulating terrain
  • Integrated sunglass wipe and clip keeps your vision dialed in
  • Two-way zip with snap supplies various venting configurations
  • Integrated sunglass holder for keeping your shades secure
  • Reflective details are visible to motorists when you ride through dusk

Weird Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I have to agree with what a lot of others have said about this jersey, it fits weird. I'm 5'9" and 185 and went XL and I'm glad I did because it's very narrow in the shoulders. A large would have for my torso better, but probably not in the shoulders. It also bunches up a little in front while riding which I think is a function of the zipper they chose. It isn't necessary a bad thing because it appears to be overkill for a cycling jersey and shouldn't become a failure point. Consequently, it's a little long in the torso. I like the material and look, so I'm keeping it since it was a good price on sale. At regular price I probably would have returned it. I already have the matching bibs and they're excellent, so this a little bit of a disappointment.

Race Fit. Not Active Fit.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

So these are a bit odd. I was looking through the reviews and said it seems to be too long.

It does but it doesn't. On usual jerseys the rear three pockets run all the way to the bottom hem. On this one, it doesn't. there's a band around the bottom with the gripper which makes the jersey appear longer, so it's the band that makes it feel longer,

Size wise, it feels more like a race fit jersey. it's definitely not a casual loose fit. Like old school wear lycra cross country race fit.

the technical features are great

Awkward fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: M

I was looking forward to the features of this jersey for my gravel riding adventures.... but as a 5'8" 170lb rider that has shoulders, it fit horrible! I typically wear a race cut small or medium depending on brand, but a medium in this jersey was way too long and didn't have nearly enough room in the shoulders. Needless to say, I am returning the jersey.

To sum it up, all-around awkward fit!

New Favorite Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

This is my new favorite jersey! So comfortable, and it's so nice to finally have something long enough that I don't have to be pulling down on it all the time. Take my review with a grain of salt, though, since I'm 6'4'' and 155 pounds. Definitely fits well on a tall and slim frame. Most jerseys are baggy in the chest and too short on me, so this was a nice find.

Runs very very small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I wear t-shirts M or Large, and I usually order jerseys L or XL since I don't like tight fit. I got XL of this one, and it fits like Medium towards Small, somewhat uncomfortably tight. Bummer since I really like the materials.

The other disappointment is that BC charges for returns, so now I have to pay for their mistake for listing very poorly sized jersey. Based on other reviews I am not the only one to mention that.

Runs very small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: L

Ordered a large in this and it is extremely tight. I am 6'3, 180 - have never ordered an XL anything - sad this has to go back.

Quality and design look to be pretty good.

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
