Similar in construction, materials, and fit to the company’s Race jersey, the Royal Racing SP247 Long-Sleeve Jersey misses out on the Race’s arm vents and forearm padding, but if you’re after a lighter jersey and are willing to give up a touch of protection and breathability, then the SP247 is the way to go.
The SP247 jersey is made up of various mesh polyester fabrics, each engineered for a specific purpose on the rider. Lighter and more breathable side mesh, as opposed to the still-light but tougher torso panels, helps to keep you cool on warmer days, and a pair of wrap-around sleeve vents help in this regard, too. The wide, low-profile neck is Leatt protection-friendly, and the tagless label at the back of it won’t drive you nuts or derail your concentration mid-run. The Micro Lycra cuffs are taped for a comfortable and secure fit that won’t shift around at speed, and the sublimated graphics won’t fade from the sun, washing, or wear and tear.
