KoM Jersey

£129.00

Instantly recognisable, Mount Ventoux or ‘le géant de Provence’ is an iconic climb among the cycling fraternity – steeped in history, tragedy and victory. Inspired by this revered legend of the Tour, the ashmei design team has created a KoM Jersey to honour those who embrace alpine cycling.

Lighter than its Classic Short Sleeve Jersey stablemate to optimise performance, the KoM revels in the ascent as much as the descent. The blended MERINO+CARBON fabric will keep you cool when you are working hard and help you stay warm if the alpine wind starts to bite. Thanks to its natural wicking capabilities, the Merino blend dissipates any moisture from your skin to the outer layer of the fabric, keeping you incredibly dry – even in 30 degree summer heat. This luxurious blend of fabrics also boasts 10 times faster wicking than normal Merino wool – and also dries twice as fast.

Three rear pockets keep your accessories stowed with equilibrium, whilst a zipped security pocket keeps essential items secure, should you need that peace of mind. Weighing in at just 168g, this is a serious piece of kit for all those who love the majesty of the mountains.

ashmei Head of Product Development Elliot says: “We listened to customer feedback on our Short Sleeve Classic to offer a three rear pocket Jersey with enhanced reflective detailing. With inspiration from the Tour de France, this Jersey is lighter than its predecessor with lots of subtle reflective details to keep you safe when riding.”

    I particularly like the understated colours and cut. A design that is stylish, noticeable without shouting its presence.
    The jersey is well made with all the seams and stitching being very neat and well thought out. A good quality product.
    The materials are very comfortable against the skin and seem to give good general insulation against the elements be that colder temperatures or hot days. Particularly noticeable was how comfortable the jersey was during some very hot and very humid days I rode through on a recent cycle trip.

    This is a jersey that can be worn all day in complete comfort, in fact you hardly know that you are wearing it. No chafing or rubbing from any of the seams, the zip can be adjusted easily while on the move, often an issue with some jerseys, and at the end of a day washes well ready for use the next day, drying overnight.
    For me the only change I would ask is for a half zip option of the jersey. This is a personal preference in my case.
    In my opinion this an excellent piece of kit that I would recommend to anyone.

    High quality jersey that feels very soft to the skin. Very light. Wicks away sweat very well. Sweat from climbing will easily dry off during the descent on the other side. Like the subtle color schemes. Enjoyed riding in the hot summer days in Nice. However, due to the very soft nature of the fabric, the pockets may sag a little after use.

    First tryout of this jersey today. I am an “older” cyclist and 90kg but very, very fit cycling at least 60k each and every day in the south of France. It is very hot at this time of the year (38 degrees centigrade today). I also try to average 30kph over the total cycle so I put in lots of effort and as a result sweat lots. Its a very good test of any cycling equipment. The jersey was excellent on its first test outing – I will see how it wears after lots of use and washing – but it was easily a match on its first run to anything else I have (and I buy lots of cycling clothing usually sticking to Rapha or Assos). The feel on the skin is excellent and wicking worked well.

    this is a high quality jersey, that’s a pleasure to wear, having used it on cool mornings 4 deg c and during the day when the temperatures have risen to 30 deg c, in both cases its been comfortable to wear, pockets are large compared to other jerseys I have. nice subtle colours, although perhaps others might like a more bold colour sheme
