Winner of the ISPO Award 2023: The Mercuria short sleeve jersey by Jelenew.

In recent years, the number of women in cycling has increased significantly. Jelenew's aim is to offer women who love cycling a jersey that strikes a balance between sporting performance and high-quality aesthetics. In addition, cycling fashion as a whole has developed into a lifestyle market, in which fashion aspects are at least as important as sporting performance. The good thing is: with the Mercuria short-sleeved jersey from Jelenew, you don't have to choose one or the other.

Aerodynamic bike jersey

The Mercuria short-sleeved jersey has what it takes to be a real favorite outfit on the bike - no matter which roads you are at home on. The jersey was developed on the basis of aerodynamics and uses a technical fabric with aero strips to dissipate air and create an optimal aerodynamic surface that minimizes drag. Ergonomic, advanced fitting techniques improve the fit of the garment to adapt to women's specific physiology and provide a comfortable feel.

With the help of specifically placed materials, different functional zones can be combined.

Light compression and ergonomic cut

The jersey weighs only 125 grams. The Pro-Fit cut technology used in the chest, waist and back area ensures a good fit for the muscles and provides adequate compression to the various muscle groups, reducing fatigue while riding. The polyurethane fiber incorporated into the fabric provides excellent stretch and ensures a better fit to the body shapes and muscle structures of female cyclists. It also distributes pressure evenly across the fabric to protect the jersey from tears and damage caused by pulling and excessive friction during high-intensity activities.

It is also abrasion-resistant, moisture-regulating, windproof and, despite its elegant appearance, very robust. With its elegant design, Jelenew wants to inspire more women to take up cycling.

The Mercuria short-sleeved jersey is available in black, pink and lemon.

With the Mercuria jersey, Jelenew wants to inspire more women to get into cycling.

This convinced the jury:

  • Elegant, sporty look
  • Particularly light and breathable
  • Ergonomic fit 
  • Aerodynamic construction
What the jury said:
"This highly technical cycling jersey is almost too good to be worn exclusively for sport. It feels very soft yet durable and has a very feminine, aerodynamic style in great colors."
