Made from a very lightweight material mix, this jersey is designed for MTB marathons. Plenty of storage space makes a backpack superfluous and the FIRM HOLD Pocket Technology offers firm support and avoids sagging or swaying of the pockets on the trail.
For MTB marathon racers or fast trail riders who need just what is necessary and nothing more the Gore Bike Wear Alp-X Pro Short Sleeve Jersey is an excellent choice. The lightweight material and mesh ventilation ensures you remain dry and cool no matter how hot it gets and how fast you're pushing the pace. For all your race and trail essentials Gore use FIRM HOLD pockets so you can stuff them full and still not have a saggy feeling you'd get with lesser jerseys. The addition of a small zipped rear pockets means you have space for emergency food money and keys.

The fit is slim but not restrictive, the jersey allowing freedom of movement. You get the benefit of excellent moisture control from the next to skin fit as well as a lack of excess material to catch the wind.
FIRM-HOLD Pocket Technology
The pockets on the Alp-X Pro Short Sleeve Jersey have been engineered to securely hold all the equipment needed for a Marathon race. The backpack-inspired ‘straps’ stabilise the pockets (no swinging or bouncing), distribute weight and follow your movements as you rail the downhills, even when fully loaded. It all adds up into reduced distraction and increased comfort.
ALP-X PRO COOL OUTFIT SYSTEM
Every second counts - ALP-X PRO is engineered for the race oriented mountain biker. The Outfit System approach uses only four garments in combination with selected accessories to equip you for all your training rides and races all year round.
Key features: Versatility, lightweight, easy to pack and carry, excellent tight fit, cutting-edge technologies like the FIRM-HOLD Pocket Technology and innovative WINSTOPPER® Soft Shell fabrics.
Short sleeve cycling jerseys are cut to provide a close fit whilst riding, they are made from stretchy, breathable materials, which help transfer moisture away from the body and keep you comfortable on the bike. They are best combined with a quality base layer on hot days and can be worn under a jacket on cooler days, making them a good choice as part of a layering system as well as a single item. When choosing a jersey consider how much venting you would like and look at the zip lengths, the longer the zip the higher the ventilation choice you will have. Cycle Jerseys also feature open pockets on the rear for carrying items such as energy gels, energy bars or inner tubes.
