The GC Cycling Jersey is Podium's flagship jersey. Made with ultra-light warp-knitted fabrics and flatlock stitching throughout, this jersey will be your best friend every summer for years to come.
Why is this jersey $40 more expensive than our standard jersey? Well, we sourced the fabric straight from Italy. It's called Miti Timeout and it's about 21% lighter than your traditional fabric while still maintaining the properties you'd like in a jersey, sweat wicking, opacity, comfort. We added a fourth pocket in the rear with a heavy duty zipper that's perfect for all the things you don't want to worry about losing on your ride -- house key, cell phone, etc.
Zipper - you wont find one like this in any traditional garment. We used a full visible YKK zipper for this jersey. The teeth and pull are a little bigger than normal but not by much.
Full Silicone Waist Gripper - Most clothing companies just throw and elastic band around the waist and forget about it. We went one step farther and added a full rubberized waistband to eliminate the possibility of this jersey riding up.

Use simple detergents with no additives:
Stay away from detergents with fabric softeners, perfumes or any additive type product. The general rule of thumb is the simpler the better. Many detergents with additives leave "surfactants" behind on a fabric's fibers that inhibit the technical performance. Typically the best detergents to use will have "Clear" or "Free" in their names. Don't pour the detergent directly onto the clothing, put it in the washer first, when you start the water. If something is not functionally working, but is not dirty, try rinsing it twice in warm to hot water. This will help get rid of the harmful surfactants.
Read the care content label:
On the inside of your garment, or on the hangcard, there are instructions for the care of that individual piece. On garments this will be on a side seam or back seam label. Follow those directions. On finer fabrics, use a "Gentle" cycle. Close all zippers, attach "hook and loop" closures on gloves
You can use the dryer, carefully:
If you use a dryer be sure to use a lower / warm heat setting (Do NOT use a commercial dryer or a "Hot" setting). This will often restore the fabric and help the water and wind repellent qualities. If in doubt, hang the clothing to dry.
