Official Z Tour Bike Ride Cycling Jersey

The custom unisex jersey is the result of a partnership between the Z-Tour Bike Ride and Mt. Borah, a leading cycling apparel designer and manufacturer. It is made of MicroGrid (Italy), an extremely lightweight, breathable fabric that offers excellent moisture management, comfort, and durability.

As a stand-alone race or training piece, the jersey has a full-hidden zipper, a 3-pocket back, 3/4" elastic at the waist (optional on the Club fit only), and is tailored in a relaxed Club fit or Pro fit. The exclusive slate blue, ocean, and neon lime colors in relaxed cycling pattern has four custom logos in four locations. The Z-Tour logo graces the back of the jersey and the front, left breast pocket area. The sleeves sport a Zearing Child Enrichment Center logo and Princeton's Captain Swift Covered Bridge logo, signifying the charity organization and the location of the ride. You will find the Peru Bike Works logo on the center bag pocket.
