World Jerseys Jolly Roger Pirate Jersey

20 Aug

When I am cycling on the road I always were a quality hi-vis jersey, like the Pearl Izumi Attack Short Sleeve Jersey or the Road Holland Hilversum Jersey. I love hi-vis yellow, lime and orange jerseys because they allow motorists to see you from a long distance away—they really can save your life. However, when I am riding on off-road trails I don’t mind wearing a jersey that has a bit of character. Earlier this year I bought a World Jerseys Jolly Roger Pirate Jersey for use with my Surley Necromancer Pugsley on the off-road trails—it’s a great combination.

World Jerseys offers over 100 uniquely designed and colorful cycling jerseys that all have a bit of an attitude. I own several of the jerseys that World Jerseys makes and while the color and graphic design differs on each jersey, they all fit the same and are all made of a very breathable “100% Polyester Euro-Mesh fabric.” They also have a 19″ zipper that, for all practical purposes, is invisible. All of their jerseys have three back pockets so you can store your energy bars and gels, along with a spare tube if needed.

All of the World Jerseys brand jerseys I have bought have a “club fit.” If you are used to riding in a cheap Performance Bicycle brand jersey then this jersey will seem a bit small (the Performance jerseys fit like a tent). If you are used to riding in jersey that was manufactured in Europe then these jerseys will seem a bit large.

Since I’ve spent more time than usual on the off-road trails this year my Jolly Roger Pirate Jersey has seen a lot of use—which also means it has been washed a lot as well. Surprisingly, even after more than 25 washings this jersey still looks like brand new! Even my beloved Pearl Izumi jerseys don’t stand up to wear and tear as well as these jerseys.

World Jerseys brand jerseys retail for around $55 each, but they are hard to find at most local bike shops. I’ve looked around and the best selection of cycling jerseys I’ve found so far has been from eCyclingstore.com. Not only are they willing to beat the price you find on any other Website, but they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. By the way, here is a link to the World Jerseys Jolly Roger Pirate Cycling Jersey. Also, eCyclingstore.com sells a pair of Skull and Crossbones Cycling Socks if you want to complete your ensemble (I haven’t tried them myself but they do look pretty cool).

    True, the cycling jersey has to be visible on the road during daytime and during night. It also has to perform ( to wick away the sweat and to keep the body cool and dry). However, the message that the Jersey carry is as important as the jersey itself. (For example, I cannot use a jersey that has symbols of violence and death on it!) Often, I avoid a jersey that carries a message. For me, I find it difficult to containing my cycling within a message. Hence, I will always love to wear jerseys that just carry a sports event’s name or logo or a cycle manufacturer’s name of logo.

    Abraham — The Jolly Roger on this jersey is smiling — I’ve never had anyone get upset by it — nearly everyone laughs, which is what I intended int he first place. Ride safely.
