In its third year of creating cycling apparel, POC expanded on its successes with the race-focused Raceday and safety-conscious AVIP lines by taking the logical next step: introducing a new line aimed at long-term, recreational riding comfort. Proving that calculated, careful design begets functional, durable pieces, the Fondo Light Men's Jersey is a versatile addition to POC's steadily growing collection, and each color variant features a custom zipper pull to represent well-known gran fondo rides from around the world. For the days when your riding group does its annual all-day ride to a favorite scenic area or for solo weekend jaunts exploring new routes, the Fondo makes a comfortable, reliable companion. As its name makes clear, the Fondo Light is an airier, lighter version of the Fondo Classic jersey, making it ideal for warmer days or climb-intensive rides where breathability makes a difference. POC uses a polyester fabric to construct the jersey, adding even airier mesh panels under the arms to enhance ventilation while a full-length zipper lets you open up for more airflow on especially hot days. POC paid careful attention to the collar's smooth, flexible shape as well as the soft arm cuffs, which don't use any silicone or elastic grippers to stay in place. The brand does add a well-placed elastic band around the back of the waist hem, but switches to a cleanly glued hem along the front of the waist that promises to stay dutifully in place as you move around in the saddle. Three rear pockets give you space to store, and easily access, hours of ride nutrition, while the overall fit remains tailored but more forgiving of a mid-race cafe stop than Raceday or AVIP.
