Stomp the Pedal Signature Logo Jersey
Velo Insider Rating
PROS: Excellent fit, great design, good choice of fabrics, rear security pocket.
The ‘Signature Logo’ jersey by Stomp the Pedal is a smart looking, nicely designed jersey that fits extremely well. Stomp the Pedal are a brand that currently focus exclusively on women specific cycling kit. Their range of kit looks superb with striking designs, well chosen fabrics and all made in Italy.
This particular jersey features their ‘signature’ logo which makes for a great looking design that catches the eye. The Signature Logo jersey is very well made with some lovely design features which we will talk about later. We also like the left side contrasting sleeve which provides a nice little design detail to this black cycling jersey.
Overall the jersey is extremely comfortable and fabric choice makes this a great jersey for a variety of riding conditions.
“the quality & design of this jersey is very good, it looks great paired with their matching bib shorts…”
Quality and Comfort
Fabric choice is very important for comfort and the textured microfibre combined with the 135 bi-elastic fabric provides great comfort without any tight areas around the neck or arms. The fabric also provides quick drying times if you are ever caught in a shower or get wet while riding.
The fabric provides UV protection and excellent breathability for all temperatures of riding. We also like the collar shape which tapers down to the zip at the front, this provides good comfort around the neck area when moving your head from side to side.
Being a lightweight summer jersey, the choice of bi-elastic fabric makes this very comfortable to wear. The side panels and arms are extremely flexible and prevent any discomfort while riding. There is no doubt that this is a high quality jersey.
Made with some very nice lightweight fabrics, the jersey moves with your every turn and provides good ventilation while riding. The arms are well designed with a very lightweight laser cut cuff which sits close to the skin and does not flap around in the wind. The full front zip is very easy to adjust with one hand, making adjustments quick while out riding.
The rear features 3 storage pockets and a zipped security pocket, something we think should be on every jersey these days. Our only negative in this area is that on this jersey, being a size small, the pockets feel a little small and the security pocket was not large enough to store a modern smartphone. However this is not a deal breaker as every rider has different preferences on what they expect from a jersey.
There is no silicone grip on the arms, however the cuffs appear to stay in place due to the lightweight fabric and close fitting design. There is a silicone gripper to the waist which is strong and provides good grip preventing any riding up when bending over.
With strong fabrics and good build quality, this jersey should last for tens of thousands of miles riding. The zips are robust with a good closing action, the stitching overall is very strong and the fabric has a good stretch without being too thin and potentially tearing with pockets full of energy gels and valuables. The black ink used for the fabric looks nice and dark and following the washing guidance will no doubt keep this jersey looking new for many years ahead.
Size and Fit
Finding the right fit is often a problem for women due to the variety of shapes and sizes of bust and waist. These jerseys are slim fitting so bear this in mind when choosing your size. If you prefer a slightly relaxed fit it might be worth sizing up to get the right fit for you. Our female reviewer is a UK size 8 wearing a small which is a perfect slim fit.
Using extremely flexible materials allows the jersey to stretch to most bust sizes, however if you are larger than other, you might want to size up just to make sure. The arms fit nicely around the shoulders without any bunching up of fabric. The body length provides a good coverage of the waist and bottom without feeling too short.
Value for Money
The Signature Logo jersey certainly provides quality, but at £110 GBP it’s at the top end of similar jerseys at this price which might put some women cyclists off from buying. But if you want to look unique and stand out from the usual mainstream brands, as well as enjoy a great fitting and performing jersey, then this might be the one for you… regardless of the price tag.
This is a well made, high quality jersey with a good choice of fabric. If the price does not put you off, and we hope it doesn’t, the Signature Logo jersey by Stomp the Pedal is a fabulous looking jersey for women cyclists. Check out their customer reviews… 5 stars all round!
