Zoic has a reputation for combining good fit with innovative style and technical performance. It was the first company to successfully integrate the baggy mountain bike short into the mainstream cycling consciousness. I like to think of them as the Abercrombie & Fitch of cycling clothing but with less controversy and a more palatable price tag.
The womens‘ Cameron Asym and Ambrosia jerseys are no exception.
The Ambrosia jersey is great for the chillier rides of fall and spring. What you‘ll notice most about this jersey is how unrestrictive it is in the elbows, thanks to elbow insets designed to ensure you full range of motion.
A convenient zippered pocket on the right hip is where you can carry items you need quick and easy access to, like cash, cell phone or ID. A little zippered chest pocket on the left holds your iPod and a cute touch for this jersey is the hoody-like front hand pockets. Not that you would ever want to stash anything into them while biking’”they don‘t have zippers’”but if you‘re standing around and you need someplace to put your hands for awhile, you can put them here.
The cut is very flattering without being too tight in the wrong places. The downside is that when I tried to get a moisture-wicking baselayer underneath for winter riding, I failed. It was way too tight.
The Cameron Asym has edgy cap-sleeves, a longer bottom hem in the back to give more coverage your backside and a small stash pocket on the right with a zipper. It‘s a bike jersey that works well for commuting or doing errands around town in the summer; though it‘s not so form-fitting that you can‘t get a long-sleeved moisture-wicking baselayer underneath. In fact, I wore this over the Ambrosia jersey this fall and the pairing looked really stylish. The Cameron Asym is also made from 100 percent recycled polyester so it‘s relatively green.
The Cameron Asym and Ambrosia jerseys are two of the cool clothing line that Zoic has to offer for cyclists. They have some pretty wild shorts and tops with lots of cool colors. Most bike shops carry the Zoic line so you can try things on before you buy. But if your local shop doesn‘t carry what you‘re looking for, you can always order directly off zoic.com.
