Nalini Nippio Short Sleeved Road Jersey
Made with a lightweight, high tech, moisture-transporting polyester fibre unique to Nalini called MantoDry designed, naturally enough, to keep the wearer dry and comfortable.
The five-panel cut, which for the most part provides a very snug fit, includes a full-length front zip with a slight tendency to bunch around the midriff. Otherwise, the cut is just fine for a semi-aero position while remaining well-proportioned off the bike.
The rear of the jersey features three pockets of good depth, the middle one decorated with a reflective Nalini logo. A silicone gripper band around the bottom hem completes a design that, with loose-fitting neck and arm openings, really does go unnoticed when worn, looking contemporary without being overtly flashy.
The Nalini clothing brand is perhaps best known for superb synthetic chamois inserts, but it is also one line of clothing from a company called Moa Sports that also sponsors a number of leading professional teams including Columbia HighRoad, Caisse D'Epargne and La Francaise des Jeux.
