ROSTI Gera Freeride MTB Jersey for Men & Women

Rosti named their Gera mountain bike jersey after ‘gravel’, as it’s only right that you feel the crunch of it under your mountain bike wheels as you head from the trees, down the trail and through the forded river. And, in respect of Rosti, when testing it here in the Yorkshire Dales, I took myself on trail rides that followed this nature inspired design, that follows the flow of the trail.
It’s a lightweight and very breathable short sleeved jersey, cut in a slim and relaxed style, which I like. Too often, mountain bike jerseys can be too baggy, and for general cross country and trail riding, something relaxed and slim is ideal. The fit is very comfortable across the shoulders, and the high quality material hangs softly. It has a low V collar to the font, which helps to keep you cool on the trail and looks relaxed too. Best of all, fora all that it is a lightweight material, it does keep a degree of wind out, due to the high quality weave.
As with all Rosti clothing, it’s not just the reflective natural design that stands out, evoking the journey through the hills. The finish is also top draw, and this is a jersey that’s comfortable to wear, strong and yet super light and extremely well finished. It just kind of feels nice when you’re riding, and it looks good too – and that has to be a worthy compliment. The soft natural colours that fall across the fabric look kind of nice, and it’s an easy jersey on the eye. Thankfully too, I even managed to match it with several other items from my biking wardrobe – because even on the trails, you have to look and feel good 😉 . Yes, we like this simply stylish design for the trails from Rosti, and it’ll be a firm favourite here in the Pedalnorth wardrobe for some time.

Finally, it also comes in a female specific fit, with a more refined and feminine waist, which is always important. Larisa has been testing this in Transylvania and in terms of her own additions, simply read on…
