We grew up idolising Ferrari supercars. The 308 GTS, the Testarossa and the F40, these red beasts looked quick standing still. We have no idea why but red is unquestionably the fastest of colours and it's a well-known fact that it gives supercars more horsepower and cyclists more watts! So whilst we can't own a 200mph Italian dream machine, we have dedicated this smoking new design to speed.
Disclaimer: wearing red kit will not actually give you more watts but it will make you feel super quick and super cool, even when you’re sipping espresso during your mid-ride coffee stop!
KOMRAID cycling jerseys are beautifully-designed, loaded with features and performance focused.
We've all bought a jersey that looked fine but just didn't feel right when you got it home and put it on. It's hard to put your finger on quite why, but if a jersey feels great from the moment you pull that zip up, it usually looks amazing and works perfectly. We have put many hours of consultation, thought, research and personal testing into the fabrics, sizing and fit across the size range – to ensure that your choice will be a KOMRAID jersey on those special ride days.
We also know that you didn't buy one of our products to be an unpaid, mobile billboard for our brand so you won't see overt logos or unnecessary lettering splattered across our jerseys. We believe our clean, striking designs and product quality speak for themselves – so we let others do the shouting.
Constructed from five different fabrics, our race-orientated, aerodynamic jerseys are designed to enhance ride enjoyment and performance and make you stand out in the bunch. Quick-drying front and rear jersey panels draw moisture away from the skin, while mesh sides and underarm panels provide extra ventilation to help regulate body temperature.
We use a four-way stretch fabric for the sleeves, which are finished with laser-cut, silicone-impregnated cuffs – this ensures a tight, aero fit without restricting rider movement.
Flat lock stitching is used on all our jerseys, providing added comfort and durability.
Three reinforced rear pockets offer plenty of storage for all your ride essentials. These have enough elasticity to enable you to get to your gear on the move, but sit flat and streamlined when unused. This jersey also features an additional zippered, weatherproof valuables pocket – big enough to stow an iPhone 7 or similarly-sized smart phone. It is finished with subtle, reflective trim for added safety in poor light conditions.

We know that judging the sizing of cycling clothing can be tricky. The key measurements of each size are given in the table below. We suggest you compare these measurements against clothing you already have to help you choose the right size for you.
IMPORTANT: Our clothing is ‘race fit’ and is designed to be worn skin tight for maximum aero benefit. If you are at the top end of a size range and/or want a more relaxed fit, we would advise that you go to the next size up.
A. Chest (cm)
B. Waist (cm)
C. Zip (cm)
In developing our line of performance cycling wear, we have subjected each item of clothing to thousands of hours of testing, by riders ranging from weekend warriors to IRONMAN distance triathletes.
There is a commonly-held belief in cycling that cyclists and triathletes are like oil and water – they should never mix. We happen to disagree. An IRONMAN distance triathlon is just about the toughest single day test of endurance you can do.
With never quite enough time between training sessions, you’re always on the verge of being over-trained. This constant state of fatigue makes you irritable. Any slight discomfort is magnified and becomes an excuse not to train. Developing saddle sores is your worst nightmare. They take much longer to heal as you can't afford to take a few days off to recover.
It turns out that IRONMAN training was the perfect opportunity to test both the performance and comfort our clothing.
Over the past 12 months of testing, we have wrecked a lot clothing. We’ve listened to rider feedback and have gone back to the drawing board on more than one occasion, we've added features and developed our designs. In doing so, we have created a line of cycling wear that that brings together absolutely optimal function, comfort and performance.
