With custom, limited-edition graphics designed by our Bicycles Change Lives contest winner, this short-sleeve jersey is built on our GT platform, featuring raw-cut sleeves and a streamlined, regularFit.
To celebrate our Qhubeka partnership for 2022, we created a contest where one winner’s artwork would become the graphics of this limited-edition jersey. 40% from every jersey sold goes directly to the Qhubeka program, supporting our shared mission of changing lives with bicycles. According to the artist, Stijn Dossche, “I created the design considering the typical African styles and patterns, adding multiple elements to show that the Qhubeka program reaches out to everyone. One of those patterns is scattered to show that there's still a lot of work to do.” The jersey itself is built on the second generation of our UMA SS platform, set apart by its comfortable raw-cut sleeve construction and streamlined regular fit.
The body panels feature BIG DUAL Tex, an interlock circular knit fabric with snag-resistance and mechanical stretch. The sleeves’ Push Pull textile is a warp-knit that wraps with gentle compression. Both provide UPF 50+ and breathe, actively cool, and manage moisture better than bare skin alone.
It wears a streamlined regularFit and features a completely revamped raw-cut sleeve construction made with the same stretchy, ultrasoft textile we use on our race jerseys. This stitch-free construction creates the smoothest transition possible between the fabric and your arms, with a stay-put hold while outstretched at the bars.
