Impossibly cool.

Residing in the stifling basins and sun-soaked ranges of Northern Utah, we're no strangers to riding in oppressive heat once summertime rolls around. That's why we've teamed up with the designers at Louis Garneau to create the exclusive Men's Mondo Leggera Jersey, which excels in the hottest imaginable weather. We'd like to keep riding through the dog days of summer and we're hoping you'll follow suit, with this jersey helping you achieve your ambitious riding and training goals, even if it's radiating heat like a sauna outside.

CB Mondo fabric is placed along the upper body and shoulders, renowned for its four-way stretch and smooth-wearing characteristics. This soft, stretchy fabric is complemented by the impossibly lightweight and airy sensation of sublimated Kite Mesh along the lower body and back. This semi-transparent mesh weave rapidly disperses perspiration and heat, meaning you'll stay pleasantly cool when temperature readings approach triple digit realms.

The Mondo Leggera Jersey is not only incredibly lightweight and cool-wearing, but it also employs a form-fitting design for streamlined efficiency when you're riding into headwinds or descending your favorite canyon road. Pre-shaped shoulders boost comfort when you're tucked in the riding position. Other useful features include Aero Lazer arm bands for a smooth seal that enhances aerodynamics, as well as a Super Light Grip along the rear hem that prevents the jersey from riding up when you're dropped over the bars.

Love this jersey for the summer months

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

This and an LG bib shorts are my go-to kit this summer. Never feel too hot in it and Vegas temperatures in the summer mornings are in the 90s. It is mesh, so it's transparent, but mostly on the back. Fabric is delicate so maybe gentle wash, but never machine dry. Great looking race jersey and highly visible.

Great hot weather jersey

Race cut so size up. This is a great jersey and a tremendous buy at 55% off.

Size up!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Order this at least one size up, possibly two. I'm 5'10", 170, 31" waist, athletic build, lift more than ride. I like a form fitting but not skin tight jersey fit. I ordered a Medium based on the two reviews on Backcountry- one said it runs true to size and the second said slightly small. Maybe they changed their sizing since then, but the medium I received is equal to a S to XS mens T-shirt. It was beyond skin tight. I'm returning it, but the jersey seems to be well made and very light and breathable. I'll order both a L and XL to see if I can get a good fit.

The manufacturers tag claims UV UPF 30+.

Love it, especially for the sale price

  • Fit: True to size

I love the material and fit on this jersey. I'm 6' and 185 lbs and wear a large. It's got a good tighter race fit, but I think it's true to size. The lightweight mesh is great for keeping you cool and isn't entirely transparent. There's a small pass through for the cord to your headphones which is kind of nice. Probably the only thing missing would be a zippered pocket for a few valuable items.

Does it provide any SPF protection

At first I was a little concerned about the mesh make up of the jersey, but it's fantastic for hot days in the summer! Fit is perfect, I'm 6'2" and 185 lbs and I ordered a L. If you like a form fitting jersey this is perfect for you.
