The CONCEPT Merino pairs our most articulated and refined pattern with ultra fine merino wool for an extremely versatile jersey. Excellent as a standalone for cooler days, or as the ultimate mid- or base- beneath one of our jackets when the weather turns. Light weight, yet thermo regulating, the CONCEPT Merino will become a go-to for the Spring season. New for 2021 is the Navy color.
Fabric: 75% Merino Wool / 18% Polyamide / 7% 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:

I can’t wear 100% wool, ever, even blends are usually no go. I apparently failed to read the details and ordered this jersey expecting it to be similar to my velocio base layer which has a touch of wool, but was surprised to find it was mostly wool and immediately resigned myself to having to return it. But it looked so good, I had to try it on, then it fit so well I convinced myself to take advantage of the 30 day return policy and try it out on a ride (assuming I’d have to send it back, which would be a first in my relationship with the brand). Somehow no itch, no tingles on the skin, no discomfort; quite the opposite, it was super comfortable. Paired with the whisper thin ultralight jacket it’s match made in heaven for the warmer “winter” days in N California/Bay Area.
Nice and thin. Excellent quality. I’m 5’7” and 132 lbs and got a size small. Fits nicely.
Such a comfortable jersey! Big plus that it stays dry when you are sweating.
Fits great and super comfortable to wear but it feels unstable with full pockets. I’d like to be able to wear it on longer rides but there’s a lot of sway!
I haven't been so excited about a new piece of cycling kit since my introduction to women's thermal bib shorts. This jersey is soft (not scratchy), lightweight & wicks well. There is a bit more stretch to the fabric than the standard concept jersey material, but it is nice & form fitting. I would say it runs true to size, I ordered the same size I'd wear in SE or Ultralight. I'm in love with wearing this on 55-65 degree days with just a vest over & arm warmers. You could fit a base layer underneath if desired. Can't wait to test this in the winter too. My new favorite piece hands down. I'm 5'6" 130 lbs and wear a S.
