Versatile summer jersey with a pinstripe of real silver
As with all Q36.5's products this is a carefully shaped and
extremely comfortable jersey that also includes some subtle
The L1 Pinstripe is constructed from a polyester microfilament
which contains a pure silver thread (2% of the fabric composition,
equivalent to about 2g of silver per jersey). This shows as a
subtle pinstripe running vertically through the weft of the
The weave of the fabric is optimised for breathability, which
also equates to fast drying times. It's also remarkably light
weight, despite appearing to have a slightly thicker (and
beautifully soft) cloth, much nicer to wear next to the skin than
some of the crinkly paper-thin summer jerseys out there. This weave
also provides valuable extra protection on descents after long
climbs, just the time when you need a little extra protection.
The jersey is designed in Q36.5's "ergonic" fit, to be snug
fitting but not constrictive. The natural stretchiness of the
fabric, combined with some clever panel shaping and minimal seams,
makes this a superbly comfortable jersey.
Why the silver thread?
Silver has fantastic thermal conductivity. This means it can
distribute heat quickly and evenly across its surface. Evaporation
is also accelerated by silver's high level of conductivity in a
humid environment. As a result the wicking and cooling properties
of the fabric are improved, and a slightly heavier weight cloth can
be used to give improved comfort and feel without any impact on
performance or heat efficiency.
The anti-static dissipative effects of silver also improve
micro-circulation and its anti-bacterial qualities help to reduce
odours. It also looks pretty cool, but make no mistake, this is a
true performance innovation.
