The rich, saturated colors of Gore Bike Wear's Power 3.0 Women's Jersey were enough to grab our attention after muted winter rides spent covered up with outerwear. With a refreshingly simple, sleek silhouette, the Power 3.0 is a welcome break after drab winter layers, and its soft, stretchy nylon and elastane blend was made to follow body movements in the saddle while wicking moisture away from the skin during warmer, sunnier days.
Gore helps the main body fabric moderate temperature further by adding mesh accent panels for more ventilation, and it includes three traditional rear pockets for ride essentials as well as a fourth zippered pocket for stowing more important valuables. Other extras, like a comfortable rounded collar and flap underneath the full-length zipper make this a jersey we'd reach for before long days, even though Gore distinguishes its Power line as ideal for medium-distance riding. Finally, well-placed reflective accents work to keep you visible to motorists and other road users whether you're out in daylight or unable to resist riding past sunset.
