The Ventura Long Sleeve T1 incorporates our lightweight thermal fabric in a race-fit construction. Race-fit construction places the jersey close to skin eliminating gathering and excess fabric in the body and sleeves. Our new thermal rating system T1, T2, and T3 designate insulation and comfort ratings based on the fabric. T1 is our lightest weight thermal fabric and is suggested for temperatures above 50F. You might even be able to brave temperatures in the low 40’s when paired with a vest and base layer.
I assume that other manufacturers are still in business only because not everybody has had the joy of wearing Eliel (yet). My requirements for being on a racing team are now defined by whether or not Eliel makes their kits. I am riding a lot more these days, because I don't want to take the kit off. And if any of this is unclear...."LOVE LOVE LOVE"
