Cycling jerseys were originally made of wool, bags made in the chest.
Lana keeps riders warm in cold weather, but it was too hot in warmer conditions.
Professional cycling with the manufacturer of the bicycle has been added to the front of the jerseys of the driver as a sponsor. Later, when the television coverage increased from racing bikes, started the company from outside the bike industry, see the increased value for the sponsors involved and cyclists money and prestige.
The technological development have on the shirts of wool were replaced by polyester, they were much more convenient for cyclists and better experienced to changing climatic conditions in racing.
The bags were transferred to the lower back, making travel easier and safer access. Zippers were introduced into the front of the shirt, designed after the short duration, in coping with the heat, and is often cyclists zipped fully open climb into the mountains in the Alps stages hot.
Cycling jerseys are returned since then to improve more and more resistant to cold, rain, but heavy rains are still all riders who seek the protection of a water-tight.
As in other sports as many replica kits are becoming increasingly popular. Now you can use the T-shirt, shorts, gloves and accessories from one of their favorite team cycling.
If you plan to start biking in the summer are, then it's probably better to buy a T-shirt with the circulation of the zipper. If it is winter, buy a shirt with some zip, which is often cheaper to buy. Most T-shirts with 3 pockets on the back, away from every shirt that may not like long trips, you have a lot in his pockets.
I recommend a short-sleeved shirt, but also buy gloves. It is more versatile than the weather. A bright color is of course safer on the roads and there are many available fluorescent shirts, jerseys and between the professional team.
