Classic Diablo Jersey
One of Northern California’s most legendary climbs is called Mt. Diablo. Frequent passage of the Tour of California and the local proving grounds for cyclist determined to test their fitness and resistance to gravity.
Great wicking fabric. Keeps you cool with a great aero fit.
Every time I pull this jersey out of the drawer I feel like it might be one of the nicest pieces of clothing I own. It feels luxurious. And amazingly light. You hardly notice it in your hands or on your back. Speaking of which, the back panel of this jersey, as well as the arms, are normal thickness. At first, I thought that might have been less-than-desirable in hot weather but, it keeps your back from getting sunburned. Good call. But the front is incredibly breathable. It’s tighter than a Rincon jersey, so if you are borderline on sizes don’t go down.
Fits a little more snug than the Soledad but pretty close in fit (snug race kit fit following the chart). The difference is if you live in a hot, humid climate the Diablo will keep you cooler.
You cant beat this jersey for long hot days on the bike. If you get warm easy like I do or live in a hot humid place this is the jersey you want! Super comfortable fit and love the way the sleeves feel!
Everything about the Diablo is great except the pockets. Maybe consider a more “durable sturdy” pocket for smart phones. I have an iPhone max and it sloshes around a bit. Just a thought.
