Kalf Flux Chevron: A Jersey Review

Kalf is a new brand to the cycling clothing market, having only launched in April, but the Flux Chevron jersey sets out to challenge the likes of more established boutique brands with this performance-cut jersey – and it’s a cracking piece of kit.

Interestingly, where some closer-fitting jerseys can feel tight, bordering on the uncomfortable, there’s no sense of that in this medium size, a testament to the natural give in the fabric. The clean lines are accentuated by the soft flat stitching inside, which also helps with maximising comfort with the seams up against the skin.

Under the arms there are laser-cut panels for ventilation, which helps with keeping you cool in warm summer temperatures, in tandem with the light fabric in the torso.

In fact, thanks to the very close fit, moisture wicking is excellent, with the cooling nature of breezes really effective as a result. That makes it perfect for intensive riding, with a cut at the sleeves, neckline and hem that’s perfect for summer riding in a relatively aero position on the bike.

The back is fortified by a little extra length, complete with an elasticated, textured gripper (in a pink chevron design), while the front pulls up slightly shorter than most, which helps keep fabric bunching down to a minimum.

Despite the competitive price tag (for a performance-led jersey) at £65, quality has also proven itself to be impressive too. The full-length front zip and security zip is easily to pull on the move, while it’s resilient to the general wear-and-tear a jersey tends to go through. It washes through well without any need for special treatment.

Kalf may be newcomers but the brand hasn’t taken any shortcuts in terms of quality, with the Kalf Flux Chevron a jersey which is very well suited to warm summer riding while also looking great.
