Personalized Randonneuring, Audax, and Brevet Merino wool cycling jerseys
100% Merino Wool Audax, Brevet and Randonneuring Cycling Jerseys
Whether you’re in the Audax, Brevet or Randonneur camp, all long-distance cyclists share the struggle to be comfortable when spending long hours on the bike. That’s even harder when you’re riding in a wide range of temperatures from dawn to dusk and through the night.
Soigneur 100% merino wool cycling jerseys enable riders to be comfortable over a much wider range of conditions than any other material. After all, Merino sheep evolved to grow superfine wool, not polyester or polypropylene! This makes them the perfect jersey for Audax and randonneuring riders.
When you’re riding with a Soigneur merino cycling jersey you know you’re going to be able to carry less clothing, less weight, and less bulk than other riders carrying multiple items for ‘layering’. They don’t get smelly either, so you can wear them for days at a time and still get a hug from your partner when you return home.
Soigneur merino cycling jerseys are most comfortable over the range from 10° to 25°. Add arm-warmers and a light jacket and that’s all you’ll need. Because of the wicking properties of wool, you don’t need a raincoat in light rain or fog.
Caution: As Eroica and retro cycling gets more popular there are many manufacturers jumping onto the wool jersey bandwagon and making substandard wool jerseys, compromised with substandard artificial fibres like polyester or using itchy, scratchy non-Merino wool.
If your woolen jersey isn't 100% Merino wool you lose the benefits of this wonder fibre and have a less comfortable jersey too. Whether you buy Soigneur or not, make sure your woolen jersey is 100% Merino!
