Men’s Performance Cycling Jersey From Tribesports

03 Jul

Several months ago the folks from Tribesports asked me to review one of their new cycling jerseys. I warned them at the time that it would be a while before I could review a summer cycling jersey since the Chicago area was in the middle of their worst winter in recorded history. Warm weather has finally arrived (about three months late) and I’ve now had a chance to ride several hundred miles while wearing this jersey. Here’s the bottom line: If you want a sharp-looking, professional quality men’s cycling jersey at a great price, then head over to Tribesports and order one today. If you need a bit more information before placing your order, then continue reading this article!

Out of the more than 400 product reviews I’ve written in the past few years I’ve never used photos supplied by the manufacturer before. However, today I am going to use them because this jersey is so beautiful that the review deserved better photos than I could take (black clothing is really hard to photograph). The Tribsports Men’s Performance Cycling Jersey is incredibly well designed—in fact, I believe it even exceeds that of a top-end Pearl Izumi jersey. This jersey is designed for warm weather cycling and has breathable moisture wicking fabric that pulls moisture away from your skin for quick evaporation, along with ample ventilation under the arm pits to keep your cool. The fabric is a 4-way stretch material (88% polyester, 12% spandex), and is given an antibacterial coating during the manufacturing process to help keep odors down.

This premium jersey has several nice touches that separate it from most of the jerseys you will find at your local sporting goods store. First, the two rear cargo pockets are noticeably deeper than any of the other jerseys I own (8″ deep by 5″ wide). In addition, there is a 5″ deep zippered pocket on top of the right rear pocket. A silicon rear hem grip will keep the tail of the jersey in place (and it works extremely well). There is also 360 degree reflective piping to help cars see you in low-light situations (but don’t forget to put a trail light on your bike as well!).

This jersey is available in five sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL). I believe this jersey is true to size, but slightly tighter than a standard Pearl Izumi jersey, so if you are on the borderline between two sizes I’d go up not down in size. I own over 60 cycling jerseys (yes, I am a collector) and the Tribesports jersey than is more comfortable than his one costs nearly twice as much!

Tribesports is a fairly new company (just three years old), and they only sell through their website. They do not have any retail outlets, television ads, or celebrity endorsements. As a result, their overhead is lower than most other sporting goods manufacturers and they pass the savings on to their customers.

The only thing I did not like about this jersey is that the primary color is black. Black fabric absorbs heat, so I would never wear it when the temperature was in the 90’s (and that’s not been a problem this year). Also, while riding on the road I prefer to wear hi-vis yellow jerseys for easier visibility.

The Tribsports Men’s Performance Cycling Jersey retails for $80, but if your “join the tribe” you get a 15% discount off all listed prices. The membership is free and it took me less than one minute to join (all they need is your name, address, phone number, and email address). So, with the discount this beautiful jersey can be yours for only $68, and Tribesports offers free shipping on all orders over $65.

        as soon as I get back from vacation, I am picking one up. I always like bright yellow all over for safety though.

          I prefer hi-vis yellow as well, but on the other hand, this black jersey is very slimming (seriously).

    Good-looking jersey. I checked the website when you first wrote about it a couple of months ago, I think. Anyway, how much getting-used-to did having only two stuff-pockets take? I often carry a spare water bottle in the middle pocket of my jerseys, so I’d be lopsided.

      Several of my mountain biking jerseys have two pockets, so it wasn’t a hard adjustment. However, the deep pockets are WONDERFUL!!!

    Love the idea of the deeper pockets and having a zippered one. Do they have a women’s version?

    Boy, I was admiring that model. :-) Slimming, indeed! Good to know about the company, overhead, etc. My husband could use one of these. Still being pregnant, I’ll wait until a slimming jersey might have some effect…

    Thanks for all your efforts to keep everyone informed. Great blog. I leave tomorrow morning for a four-day ride across Missouri on the Katy Trail. Your entries have been a big help with my planning. Very best.

      Thanks for the kind words! A four-day trip on the Katy Trail sounds fantastic! I hope you have nice weather the entire trip!

    Unless I am missing something, when I go to their site, it seems that no products show up for cycling.

      Ed — The jerseys were there when I wrote the review, but they are not their now! Either they are out of stock or they plan on discontinuing this product line (I’m not sure which).

        Either way that would be a shame. It is always great to find a good new product. I hope that they are just temporarily out of stock.

    I got mine, and it’s great. I used it horseback riding too.
