Keep your cool on the trail when everyone else is losing theirs thanks to Alpinestars’ latest innovation, the Techstar Long Sleeve Jersey. Its lightweight nature really is set to astonish, and at the same time it packs in a whole bunch of breathability to keep you perfectly ventilated, and to wick sweat away from the body quickly when you’re really up against it in those tough uphill sections. This is provided by the perfectly positioned mesh panels on the side torso and forearms and, when combined with the antibacterial finish used here, the feeling you get at the end of the day is every bit as refreshing as you feel at the start. It might be comfortable, but this the Techstar is hardly a slouch when it comes to performance. The shaping of the pre-curved sleeves keep them close to the body to support and a dash of aero to your ride, while the raglan design of the sleeves allows you to move freely for those tiny, last-minute changes needed to boss the berms. An extended rear at the back allows for greater coverage and integration with MTB shorts, and the seamless collar and cuffs keep chafing at bay.
