Biehler is one of those cycling brands that are simply reliable. Their clothing range is of the highest quality and made with the very best fabrics, using their vast experience from the pro riders that Biehler work with.
The Supreme jersey is testament to their adherence to design and performance. It’s a race fit cut and uses the very best fabrics to keep it light and yet comfortable. As a summer jersey, Biehler have thought in some detail too, about the necessity to protect your skin, and the fabric is designed to withstand UV 50+. With the knowledge that we have these days regarding skin cancer, it’s a very welcome thought – well done Biehler.
Working hard on a bike does of course produce the body’s own moisture, which Biehler have thankfully also thought about. The unique structure of the antibacterial refined, light Microfresh material used on the front of the jersey guarantees excellent breathability and ensures that moisture is quickly wicked away to the outside to avoid heat build-up. It’s a lightweight mesh style fabric that is soft and very comfortable. The back of the jersey and the sleeves are a soft and slightly heavier fabric, all with 4 way stretch, so that it fits perfectly, making you comfortable but aero.
The waist has a very wide and very strong terraband elasticated hem, which truly is superb – even supreme, making sure that it sits comfortably and doesn’t move. The sleeves are finished with the same material, merged with half fabric, cut so that it sits softly on the arms. The collar is low cut for a modern and sporty look, and the 3 rear pockets are strong and well cut, allowing easy access. I love the soft feel of the fabric too. I’m terms of design, the modern Camou style comes in a variety of colours and looks amazing. To the front is the usual full length quality zipper and it’s all presented with a super modern design to keep you looking kind of stylish.
In use the jersey has been excellent excellent in all conditions, and dried out quickly when we were caught in rain.Both Beu and I have tested the jersey – not the same one – Biehler kindly sent two 😉
When slightly damp it remained comfortable and well fitted and didn’t detract from performance. What our our overall thoughts then; both Beau and I think that this is a high quality and long lasting performance jersey that you’ll want to wear often. In fact, if Heineken made cycling jerseys, it would definitely look and perform like this.
