Keith Bonrager famously once said “strong, light, cheap; pick two” about bike components and it’s a conundrum that continues to trouble riders today. As for clothing, the same may apply but for ‘performance, style and value’. However, the Kalf Flux Transition jersey ticks all three boxes.
Kalf launched earlier this year and is a new clothing brand available exclusively at Evans Cycles. We’ve already been really impressed with the Flux Chevron short-sleeve jersey and Flux Chevron bib shorts – and they were no fluke. The theme continues with the Transition.
The clue is in the name – the Transition is a short-sleeve, windproof jersey best-suited to the transition (or shoulder) seasons of spring and autumn. The front of the jersey (that is to say the chest, shoulders and front of the sleeves) features a lightweight, windproof membrane, while the rear and back of the sleeves are made from a breathable polyester yarn. The idea is to keep the wind off your chest (which also has a DWR water resistant treatment), while allowing heat to escape from the rear.
