Velo Insider Rating
Bicycle Lines quality and attention to detail are second to none, and their top of the range ‘Medal’ short sleeve women’s jersey is vibrant, sleek, comfortable and perfect for summer!
Jersey colour on review is: Marine Blue
PROS: High quality fabrics, lot’s of features, superb attention to detail and a great price.
CONS: Very relaxed fit compared with similar brand sizes, so size down if you want a slim aero fit.
Quality and Comfort
The quality of fabrics and materials used in this jersey are extremely nice. The soft Asteria fabric is very comfortable against your skin and feels silky smooth to wear. The details of this jersey really show off how much Bicycle Line have put time and effort into developing a top of the range jersey. One of the best features are the arms which have a very good length and cuff, which sits nicely on your arm and doesn’t ride up while moving around.
Features include a low cut neck line which is extremely comfortable, a large set of rear pockets with a security pocket for valuables which is brilliant, there’s plenty of room to get your phone, key and some money in there with lots of room in the three main compartments for your usual essentials. Reflective details are a nice touch for riding at dusk and the slicone hem keeps the jersey firmly in place.
Being made of high quality fabrics, the jersey is extremely comfortable to wear. The side panels have a more breathable mesh fabric which will no doubt help with ventilation while putting out the watts. The sizing is more relaxed than others which is comfortable but could do with being a little smaller for comfort on the bike.
In any type of riding style, the jersey will perform as good as it looks. The light fabric is a good compromise between comfort and breathability for warmer weather rides, and those side panels provide a good amount of ventilation. Even though this is a more relaxed fir than normal, the jersey remains very comfortable and should perform well for all shapes, sizes & riding abilities.
Size and Fit
Sizing is very relaxed compared to many other brands. The jersey on review is a size small, which would normally be a slim aero fit however as you can see from the photographs the body is much more relaxed and loose around the torso. So if you want an aero or slim fit it might be worth sizing down. Apart from that, the body length is perfect with a generous length of sleeve and gripper.
Value for Money
Priced at €74.90 (£66 GBP / $88 USD) we think the quality is amazing! You get a top Italian brand with superior fabrics and every feature you can think of. Wearing this jersey you could easily expect it to cost twice this price. There’s no doubt the Medal jersey by Bicycle Line is worth every pound, dollar and euro of your hard earned cash.
If you appreciate quality, value for money and vibrant designs, the Medal Jersey by Bicycle Line is the perfect jersey. At this price, it’s one of the best value Italian, women’s jerseys you can buy. It has all the features you would expect to find in a top of the range piece of kit. You will not go wrong checking out their superb range of women’s kit!
