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 (Dirty Kanza winning) 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.
Updated for 2020 with a new version of our perforated mesh fabric on the sleeves and back, which is made of recycled polyester and provides SPF30 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.
All styles are intended to be form-fitting, across the entire size range. Find a flexible tape measure and take your own body measurements.
Chest - Start by placing a measuring tape around the largest part of your chest. The tape should be flat but not too snug.
Waist - Your natural waist lies between your bottom ribs and hip bones, close to the navel. To measure, breathe deeply, relax your stomach and lie the tape measure flat around your waist, allowing for a ¼ inch of slack.
Hip - Measured around the widest point of your hips.

Kept me cool in this hot California sun. Zero complaints, I will be buying another very soon! I am 5’5” 165lbs 40” chest 33.5" waist I ordered a medium which fit me perfect. I like my jerseys snug. If you want more room size up.
Cannot recommend highly enough. Great wicking, great cooling and great fit (XL good for me at 6'1", 180, broad). Have never worn a better jersey for warmer temps. Maiden voyage was seven hours on an upper 80s midwestern day with high humidity and dew point. Despite lots of climbing the Radiator pulled moisture off of me and it dries quickly.
Now that the weather is warming up in SoCal this is becoming my go to jersey,
The sizing was spot on according to the chart. I don't have the typical "cyclist" body and the jersey was a great fit all around, not too restrictive in any area and the fabric feels amazing. I own a plethora of jerseys, but nothing as great as this. I live in the hot, humid southeastern United States and this jersey is a godsend when the temperatures rise. I bought the Light Grey and it's a tad bit see-through, but that's expected for such a lightweight jersey. The ventilation is second to none and on an 85+ degree day, I stayed comfortable through intense interval efforts. The pricing is more expensive than most other jerseys, but you get your money's worth. This was my first purchase from Velocio, but it won't be my last.
