  • We've got a bloke in our club with that frame. It looks awesome with Campag EPS and deep sections...
    He draws the line at flouro clothing (praise the lord)

  • Classic and core are totally diff. Classic is sportwool, core is Polyester. They also fit differently, so order a couple of sizes. If you want a workhorse jersey then go for core.

  • I have a core long sleeve jersey, i like it. It's fleecy on the inside

  • Same here. Really like mine.

  • Depends on what you like in your jersey, if you like a relax cut then core is the way to go, if you like your clothing tight on you then head for pro or brevet.

  • Brevet isn't tight

  • do you wear same size in PT and brevet?

  • Yep xs

    Now thinking about it, the new PT was super tight, whilst the brevet is tight but not too uncomfortable like the PT.

  • many thanks, it's the sportwool i like, i've other polyester jerseys...

  • The long brevet jersey sizes big compared to PT sizing.

  • Brevet jersey is tight in places but has massive wizard sleeves (SS version)

    Classic jersey is one of my fave jerseys, although a little warm for the hottest summer days

  • Brevet wind proof jerseys offer a more fitted cut, much like pro team. I think this is down to the materials used in the construction of the wind proof areas. I love these (have short and long sleeve versions). I find the standard brevet has a relaxed fit that I don't care for. The brevet range has really come on in the last few months.

  • If I am an XS in PT Baselayer what size will I be in Merino Mesh?

  • xxs

  • Cheers

  • interesting, I hope they update the fit of all brevet kit, I dont mind it not being super tight (love the classic jersey) but it really did fit like shit. Shame as I liked the reflective details etc.

  • I heart my windblock Brevet jersey. If I had to choose one jersey to wear between spring-autumn it would be that.

  • Me too, it feels like a lot of thought and testing went into the design, it was my first choice every time last autum

  • I've got one of those lightweight pro team gilets. The one with a mesh back. Medium in black. Got it late 2016 but it's a bit flappy. Anyone got a small they may want to swap? Mine has a two way zip but don't mind a single zip. Long shot but fingers crossed.

  • Is the brevet gilet DWR coated? Washed it for the first time last week (liquid soap flakes, nothing harsh) and after 25 minutes of drizzle today the front had wetted through. I note the webpage just says windproof and not shower proof; is it worth spraying with reproofer next time I wash it?

  • DWR can be reactivated by tumble drying (when already dry). It's designed to last and is reasonably tough stuff.

    That is of course if it had DWR to start...

  • i have a pro team sky one, size S, barely used, if that is of interest.

  • Bit annoying that you cant use touch screen with them
