Before we get started, yes, this jersey is available in other colors besides the exceptionally bright lime green. But Pactimo did choose this color on purpose: it works in conjunction with the reflective hits throughout to keep you super-visible on the roadway. If you value function over style, that lime green is more than just a bold fashion choice.
It’s made from super-soft, lightweight Italian Superleggero fabric, and we can confirm it feels exceptional against the skin. Pactimo also includes strategically placed carbon-woven TransferC fabric for moisture management.
The fit is snug and race-oriented, with long sleeves that end with rubber grippers to keep them in place. The cuffs too have reflective hits integrated into them. More grippers at the waist keep the jersey from riding up. The low-cut collar is a nice touch that prevents any tightness or discomfort around the neck when the zipper is secured all the way up.
While we aren’t wild about the loud aesthetics, the Summit RT jersey’s fit and super-soft feel against the skin is enough to win it a place in our regular jersey rotation.
