The 8 Best Women's Mountain Bike Jerseys of 2022

By: Jon Kennedy: Bike Buyer | June 10, 2022
 

Sure, you can mountain bike in any old T-shirt. But you’ll soon find that this budget approach has its drawbacks. T-shirts have a tendency to get stinky and moist when you sweat in them, taking forever to dry out and never really loosing that funk. And T-shirts don’t have a fit that’s optimized for time on the bike. They lack the longer sleeves and hem that keep things covered and comfortable. And beyond that, mountain bike jerseys for women are just plain better. They’re made of moisture wicking fabrics that will keep you dry and comfortable. Their fit is optimized for time on the bike, and they have special features like goggle wipes and stash pockets built in.

So if you’re ready to upgrade what you wear when mountain biking, you’re in the right place. These are the best women’s mountain bike jerseys on the market right now. Each one has been carefully designed to fit the needs of female riders, with flattering fits, technical materials, and thoughtful details. And this list covers the full spectrum, from fitted, lightweight XC jerseys for long trail rides, to baggier, fuller coverage gravity jerseys, perfect for the bike park or shuttling.
