The sleeves are made with a lightly ribbed fabric while the front panel is a micro perforated fabric and there is a honeycomb mesh on the back. All together, this innovative combination makes the Jersey R2 very light (110gr) and very breathable.
The fabric is made of 70% recycled polyester fiber.
Historical note: the raglan sleeve construction first appeared on the cycling scene in 1986 when the Dutch team PDM introduced this new cut for brand visibility reasons; the large PDM logo was extremely visible on the wider sleeve. This was the start of the popularity of this style of jersey.
