WCB x PSQ Collaboration Jersey by We Can Be
Velo Insider Rating
With a perfect mix of quality, fabric choice, cut, fit and design… this WCB x PSQ Collaboration Jersey by We Can Be is superb. Considering this is part of their first ever clothing range, they are entering the cycling market with game changing apparel that exceeds many other brands who have been around for years.
We stumbled across We Can Be purely by chance on Instagram and immediately got in touch with them, only to find out they’re even based local to us in Newcastle! We’re proud to have one of their first jerseys featured on our site for review, and believe me we’re impressed with just about everything this jersey has to offer.
CAUTION… The design of this jersey is so cool, you might spend more time striking a pose than riding your bike!
PROS: Excellent cut and fit, longer sleeves are the perfect length, high quality fabrics, very good quality and value.
CONS: No zip security pocket… but WCB are changing that very soon!
Quality and Comfort
Put this jersey on and immediately you feel the quality against your skin. The silky smooth ‘second skin’ fabric oozes quality and looks very smart paired with some quality bib shorts (you can always treat yourself to some of their WCB branded shorts to match). Stitching is very good and looks to be strong enough to provide many years of riding.
We’re very impressed with the quality of materials such as the mesh panelling and gripper used for both the arms and hem. The zip is a sturdy full length YKK hidden by the front panelling of the jersey which also adds to the quality and sleek design. The printed fabric has very good detail and we love the subtle icon design to the rear pocket which replicates the left breast logo, as well as a lightning bolt… very nice!
Being made from high quality fabrics there is zero issues with comfort. The close fitting design prevents any loose areas or flapping of fabric while riding fast, and it honestly feels as good as a ‘second skin’. You can just throw this on and ride in total comfort forgetting you’re even wearing a jersey in the first place.
The WCB x PSQ is an all round performer based on WCB’s ‘Omni’ cut style. There’s good ventilation to the jersey via the sleeve and armpit areas which create ample cooling during your summer riding.
The rear features three massive rear pockets, which are an ample size for your average smartphone, spares, gilet, gels etc. The longer length arms and generous gripper band provide good grip to prevent the arms riding up your biceps as you ride. The hem gripper also provides ample grip to keep your jersey in place while riding in or out the saddle.
The ‘second skin’ fabric provides plenty of flexibility and movement while riding without creating any tight areas around your arms or neckline.
Luxury fabrics, deep pockets, perfect sleeve length, perfect fit… you can really see how these jerseys have been designed by cyclists for cyclists! This really is a top performer.
Size and Fit
True to size, the jersey fits exactly as it should. I’m normally a small (96cm chest) and the jersey on review is Small with a stated chest size of 92-97cm. No need to size up or down, just buy your recommended size and you’ll have no problems.
The fit comes in between aero and relaxed, making it a semi-aero fit called an ‘Omni’ cut which is well suited to a variety of riding styles.
The jersey comes with a perfect sleeve length, and when I mean perfect… I mean PERFECT! I’ve worn a lot of jerseys which state longer length sleeves and in reality they’re always that little bit too short for my liking. The main body also provides a good length and feels just right for all riding positions, even out of the saddle the length feels just right.
WCB have got it right with fit and for us, that’s one of the highlights of this jersey!
Value for Money
At £90 (with free delivery at this price), the WCB x PSQ jersey is a good price in relation to other independent brands. Considering you get luxurious fabrics, flatlock stitching, generous sized sleeve length and gripper, low cut collar and a concealed full length zip, as well as many other quality features, we feel the price is justified and provides good value for money. They even do matching socks for just £12!
As with all our jersey reviews it’s nice to see a zipped security pocket, which this jersey doesn’t have… yet! The guys at WCB assure me they are looking into a solution for this and we should see this as a feature to their jerseys very soon… we can’t wait. Bravo!
This jersey makes me wish it was summer everyday! The vibrant design looks amazing out on the road and the colours really ‘pop’ in the sunlight. If you want killer looks, quality fabrics and a perfect fit then you need to check out WCB and their range of cycling clothing. For a first collection, they have an extensive range with some game changing quality that’s worth every penny!
Just don’t forget to buy their socks too… When you’re jersey is patterned, we love to see matching socks… just saying!
