Breeze on by.
Make your road riding kit pop this summer with the Nalini Women's Olevola Tank. While the lively colors of this jersey turn heads on your ride, its lightweight, breathable Hot Moa fabric cools you down with continuous airflow and stretches to keep up with your on-bike movements. Then, a hydrophilic Moa Mantodry treatment keeps you dry by pulling sweat away from your skin on hotter, more grueling rides. Nalini equipped the Olevola with a silicone anti-slip gripper waist band to eliminate any potential ride-ups, and the 10cm front zipper lets you dump excess heat on the fly.

Gorgeous, high quality but HOT (temp)
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Large
Definitely size up on this one. It's form-fitting, even in the larger size, and I mean form-fitting. Not sure if a busty woman could wear this, except maybe in an XL. But for me - athletic build with small chest - oh, it is a lovely fit. Long enough (often a challenge); stays put below the waist; fantastic pattern (got black/grey). However, for a hot weather top (it's sleeveless, after all), boy, is it hot. There's no mesh or lighter material anywhere - just kind of heavy lycra-like material. I understand performance wear should have no drag but how about a little mesh in back or on the side? The material does kind of wick (I wasn't soaked, just hot), though. It also has a high back and a high neck so no air there. And the zipper is so short, it may as well not be there (no ventilation). Smaller nitpicking - the inside waist tags must be cut off or else they scratch; the little label outside at the top back neck snags on ponytails or braids (gonna have to cut that one off, too); some of the seams around the chest/armpit chafe a bit (those same seams that make the form/fit of this so sexy, sigh). Glad I got it but it's a high price for a top that can't quite serve its (warm weather) purpose.
