It’s easy to reach a point in reviews, where having looked at some many jerseys, it can be tricky to determine what makes one stand out from the other; especially these days, where good quality materials are so accessible. For me though, there are still some key areas that make me think ‘this is a nice garment.’
Biehler do tend to match my thoughts in what I see as the key areas; and, if it sounds like I’m a fan, then I’ll admit it- I am. But I do have high standards, and this top quality German brand has earned their place on our pages here at Pedalnorth. The quality of design, materials, manufacturing and detailed stitching means that if you purchase a Biehler cycling jersey, it’ll do the job required well, and you’ll look and feel like a real cyclist.
The Race Line Elite jersey is an example of the great custom kit that Biehler can produce, using their design skills to weave some modern colour themes into the garment, with nice elements to remove the usual drab themes that some brands offer. It uses 3 types of material in the multi-panel design to ensure maximum comfort and fit. Down the sides you’re given extremely breathable MESH to improve air circulation, with the stronger and heavier Microsense fabric front and rear, protecting you from the elements, and wicking away the moisture nicely too. Being cut to fit where it touches, this is a race fit top, so the finish is up to your own figure! Thankfully it comes in sizes from XS to XXXL!
The sleeves have a lighter weight and quick drying Micro fresh fabric, because as we all know, if you’re working hard, it’s going to be needed here. A wide theraband holds the sleeves in place even working well at gripping my spindles. Around the waist , there’s more theraband at the front, and a good silicon gripper for the rear. The full length zipper is great quality, as is the extra wide collar, cut to fit tightly and keep the wind at bay. Three good sized deep pockets finish things off at the back, with the hallmark Biehler quality stitching throughout.
Prices are also reasonable, meaning that you’ll have a great looking and long lasting jersey without spending silly money. Having tested this in the Yorkshire Dales over Autumn, Winter and into the early signs of Spring, this jersey has more than proved itself, keeping us cool and reasonably sweat free on all rides.
If you’re looking for a quality base from which to design your own club or team jersey; or just want something unique for you and your friends, then the Biehler Race Line Elite is a good place to look.
