For anyone interested in jerseys made from modern synthetics, a reminder that PA Randonneurs is about to begin an ordering process for jerseys from Ascend Sportswear. You can check out sizing a material options on the Ascend Website. Jerseys will be available in Elevate, Volare Elite, and Apex materials. You will also have the option for long sleeve, short sleeve, or sleeveless.
Ordering will be though a specific page on Ascend's website (our store). The store will "open" on March 24 and remain open for 3-4 weeks or until we reach a minimum order point. The jerseys will be completed roughly 5 weeks after the store closes. You can opt to have your jersey delivered directly to you or save shipping and pick it up at a brevet later and save the shipping costs.
The design mimics the classic PA Randonneur wool jerseys. The rendering below is close, but I can confirm that the vertical positioning of the black band is the same as on the wool jerseys (the top of the band is at the armpit) which differs slightly from the rendering.
You will find sizing guidance here. Samples of the jerseys will be available at the March 24 200k for those wanting to confirm sizing and materials. I recently ordered one of their jerseys and am very pleased with fit (sport cut) and material quality (Elevate).
While I do not yet have a link for the store, check back around the 24th. I will update this post with the link when it is created.
