Long-Sleeve Cycling Jerseys


As we’ve already explained, this type of kit can come in handy all year round. However, irrespective of the seasons, there are certain features you should consider when making your purchase. We recommend you keep an eye out for:

  • Super lightweight material
  • Breathable fabric - even in winter!
  • Long zipper - especially as warmer weather settles
  • Ultraviolet protection factor to keep harmful UV rays at bay
  • Great-quality fleece for the colder months
  • Waterproof or water-repellent features
  • Generous pockets for easy storage and access

If you are searching for cold weather kit, be mindful of the fit. You will surely be wearing cycling base layers and extra gear underneath so you need to keep that in mind when thinking about the right size.

If you want to get your head around the extra details, visit the Santini technical guide, which provides more information about materials.

Common Questions

When to wear a long sleeve cycling jersey?

Funnily enough, a long sleeve cycling jersey in Australia can be worn all year round. Obviously, you’d opt for a warmer thermal version in winter to help keep the chill at bay. However, in summer you can wear a lighter version to protect your limbs from sunburn, insects, scratches and falls.

Can I use a long-sleeve cycling jersey in summer in Australia?

A long sleeve summer cycling jersey in Australia is a good idea. Why? Because nothing burns quite like the Aussie sun! So, as mentioned above, opt for a lightweight version and protect limbs from damaging UV rays (as well as the insects and scratches we’ve already talked about).

When should I wear long sleeves for cycling?

As we’ve suggested, you can wear a version thereof all year round. A thermal version to stay nice and warm in winter and a cooler, breathable version to protect limbs during the hottest months.

What is the best material for a long-sleeve cycle jersey?

It depends on the time of year. You need to look for a quality fleece in winter that will help regulate your core temperature and wick away moisture. In summer, aim for lightweight, breathable and moisture-wicking properties. All Santini gear use the best quality fabrics so you can’t go wrong.

What are the important features of a long sleeve cycling jersey?

Again, it all comes down to the time of year you’re wearing it. However, regardless of the seasons, go for properties such as moisture-wicking, temperature-regulating, breathable and lightweight. As we’ve already said, you won’t put a foot wrong with Santini - we only use the very best fabrics and features.
