Award winning and unrivaled for comfort in oppressive heat, the RADIATOR MESH JERSEY returns with new colors for 2021. Award winning, celebrated when the temp rises, we tested the Radiator Mesh in the most oppressive heat and humidity (New England designed) to meet the demands of long distance gravel racing and mid-summer climbs. The Radiator Mesh Jersey performs when rides are otherwise postponed. It’s namesake is derived from the magical fabric used across the jersey front - Polartec Delta, a complex knit made with Tencel that actively cools you as you move through the air.
Featuring a new version of our perforated mesh fabric on the sleeves and back, which is made of recycled polyester and provides UPF30 sun protection.
Fabric: 50% Recycled Polyester / 40% Tencel / 10% Elastane
Made in: Italy
Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.
How does the fit of your different jersey models compare?
Updated for 2020, our Signature jersey features more compression and support compared to previous years, but is less compressive fit compared to other models. Our SE is more compressive than the Signature in the sleeves, but will feel similar otherwise. The Ultralight is our most compressive and supportive fit. The Radiator Mesh jersey is similar to our Ultralight, but less compressive through the torso/stomach area given the Radiator fabric. The CONCEPT jersey is our most aerodynamic and race-fit jersey, and offers slightly less compression than the Ultralight. And the RECON Micromodal is our least compressive, fitting like a slim-cut tee shirt. All of our jerseys are intended to be a tight/tailored fit to minimize extra material. This has several benefits, including muscle support, minimal chafing, and improved breathability and wicking.
What is the length and width of your jerseys?
Our jersey sizing is unique in that it is graded differently for every size. What this means is that we design each element of the jersey for every size. So every jersey will have slightly different measurements depending on the model and its intended fit. However, our jersey models are intended to fit the same in each size. That does vary though, given different fabrics have a different feel and elasticity, so the measurements aren't the same for each jersey we make. We highly recommend following our sizing chart or shopping at one of our retailers to find your preferred size and fit.
Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chafing. Due to the compressive nature of the fabrics, you will be able to fit into more than one size. Please use the charts below to help determine your optimum size:
Our sizing chart represents the majority of riders we’ve worked with first hand in our clothing. If your size falls outside of the specified chart, please contact customer service for insights or take advantage of our Signature Guarantee which allows for testing and return within 30 days if your riding experience, including fit, isn’t improved.

The fabric feels great in the heat, but in the celeste color it really shows sweat/water spots, so you might look a bit odd after a few minutes of riding in the heat. The pocket material is pretty stretchy/flexible as well, so this jersey might not be the best choice for all day rides if you’re using only your pockets for storage.
Thanks for reach out! We're sorry to hear that you're not keen on the sweat/water spots, but the main advantage of this particular fabric is its ability to wick moisture away so well, which will indeed result in things like salt staining on a ride in hot conditions (all of which will wash out ). We view this as confirmation that our garment is working to help cool the rider down, as garments that do not show sweat/salt staining are likely not wicking moisture away from the body as well as our Radiator Mesh Jersey
As advertised, this jersey is fantastic for hot weather riding, the front panels allow for fast evaporative cooling, and the back panels protect from sun. The jersey is very lightweight... only more time will tell if it can be durable and lasting. My only disappointment is that the silicone strips at the edge of the pockets sometimes make it a little harder to get into the pockets while riding, this is certainly a minor quibble at most.
I have 4 of these jerseys and I wear them starting in late May through September here in Texas. Light weight, excellent ventilation and moisture management. You hardly know you are wearing it. Sizing is a little different for me. I am 6-1, 180 lbs and everything in large works well for me (I am thicker in the waist and shoulders than the models Velocio uses, LOL) except for this jersey - a medium works better because it does not really have any compression. I like "race fit" and the large in the Radiator is a little too loose.
I love the looks and fit in this jersey, but like it said, designed for New England and not the south. On several 3-4 hour rides, 85-90f, 85% humidity, I easily soaked this jersey to where it was saturated. At that point it no longer wicks in the front and gets extremely hot. I’ll save it for September and use a couple of lighter weight perforated jerseys until then. 6’1” 185 42” chest size large fit nicely.
Hands down the best Jersey I've ever had for riding in the heat, my core temperature is noticably cooler. Just awesome!
