2015 Mavic Crossmax Jersey long & short sleaves

I have not crash tested it yet:-), but I assume its quite durable.

the sizes are about 1 cm difference each way, so I can use International medium and International large.

Pros

  • very comfortable against your skin soft and stretches, much more comfortable than a normal cotton t shirt., quite smooth.
  • stretches so easy to take on & off elbow pads when wearing the jersey
  • will fit every type of body armor, I use POC VPD Air elbow pads
  • excellent fit
  • the collar could be a bit higher in the front.

Cons

  • the size label  in the rear/ neck is not comfortable against your skin
  • size label in the neck is uncomfortable
  • The yellow jersey attract bees

Because I can use base layer and jersey but still feel cold in this area, use use a buff but I pull the jersey down fro the rear and on the sleeves so I get full coverage in the neck-chest area.

as you can see there is no issue wearing the Poc VPD AIR elbow pads underneath.

 

Conclusion:

good fitting and comfy jersey,so I recommend it

Review:2015 Poc trail Vent shorts

I am happy with the protection products from POC.

I have not had a bad crash in these I can’t say what will happen exactly,but I assume they will do pretty well.

Attack position

Pros:

  • side zip venting, it is perfect for me, I can use the shorts in the spring and autumn and some mild winter days.
  • I use size 32, but I use the waist adjustment, but if would get chubby they would still fit.
  • the adjustment straps are perfect,i do not have the need for a belt,this is perfect for me because I hate to use belts when cycling.
  • the right zip pocket  will fit a smart normal size smart phone, my cat s50 fits perfectly.
  • can use a belt,but i prefer to use the Velcro straps instead.
  • comfortable
  • zippers are smooth
  • good length,I ride the shorts in the fall/autumn,I wear the shin and knee pads, with keeps me warm but not too warm, but of course when its winter I wear my craft rain pants over the poc stuff.26905195400_2eaf2febc5_b
  • strong threads/stitching
  • excellent and smooth zippers,and the button make it simple and easy to takeo n and off.

Cons:

  • The shorts should be longer.

  • the big Poc logo on the side might eventually fall off afther use and wash , as can  be seen here: i use 800rpm/ gentle wash, this is pretty common issue with printed logos, i got 2 pairs 1 in baron blue and oen in black ,this happend on the black shorts,but i have used&washed  the baron blue one more. i do not know why this happend so fast with htese shorts and did not happend on the blue shorts.ihave a adidas jacket, and this happend with it too,but this was with years of use,and now its crackign and falling off,so i was supriced so see it happenign to the poc short so fast.

  • the fabric under the bottom show signs of wear, but nothing major it’s only on the inside,these 2 were the only signs of wear I have seen on the shorts so far.so fat it only happen on the black short.when you wear it the bottom tilts to the left and is rubbing the fabric,so it wears.
  • get bit hot in above 25 degrees Celsius

Conclusion:

If you can get Poc Resistance strong shorts instead get them.

The short is almost perfect, but need improvment on the button.
