The Soledad jersey features stylish Italian fabric that provide UPF protection, breathability, and the perfect stretch that doesn't bulge when on the bike. The Soledad collection stands out among its rivals.
but at seams and where pocket meets jersey the fabric in some places has turned white and looks stressed.
I was uninitiated when it came to Eliel. I’m a ‘Rapha guy’ primarily. I try other kits, but they just do not match up with the consistent quality and design. My first Eliel piece was the Soledad jersey. I needed to exchange sizes and it was super easy. The fit, form, function and look are all premium. This jersey has a coloring fade to it, so curious how it will hold up over time, hence 4 stars v 5, for now. My best compliment to Eliel is to buy more gear, which I did with another jersey recently. I am a fan.
The Soledad Jersey is my go-to for rides where I am trying to be aero, fast, and get home quick. The fabric sits close to the body without being uncomfortable. The material of the jersey is stretchy but doesn't feel overly tight while remaining aerodynamic. I can load up the pockets for a 6 hour ride and they do not droop over my butt. I know we have all seen that look. It fits true to size. I am a small in all Eliel kit including this jersey. I am 5'10" and weigh around 150 pounds for comparison.
