The 5 Best Women's Mountain Bike Jerseys of 2021

The last thing you want when reaching into the closet for your riding outfit for the day is to find all you have are ill-fitting shirts with zero stretch and breathability. Thankfully women's mountain bike jerseys have progressed leaps and bounds in the past several years and there are now a never-ending selection of options to choose from. And just because they are high tech doesn't mean you have to look like you just finished racing a leg in the Tour de France. These jerseys look just as at home on the trail as they do at your local coffee shop.

The best women's bike jerseys have a female-specific fit that is tailored to the posture we assume on the bike, so the arms and hem don’t ride up, and the backside is longer to keep you covered when you’re in a riding position. Even more important, mountain bike jerseys are constructed using technical fabrics to help them wick moisture away from your skin and keep you feeling good, without getting stinky. Read on as we've put together a list of the best women's bike shirts we’ve found so you can find that jersey that matches both your style and riding demands.


Pearl Izumi Summit

The Best women's mountain bike jerseys of 2021
 
 

Around since 1950, Pearl Izumi has seen cycling come a long way, and that includes the meteoric rise of mountain biking. Luckily for us, they have brought their years of experience making top-of-the-line bike gear to the trails. Their Summit Top is a women's mountain bike jersey that is a great example of their attention to detail.

With raglan sleeves that have a biking-specific pattern optimized for fit while riding, you'll be in a world of comfort while hitting the berms. Constructed of 95% recycled polyester, it's a great material for physical activity and the environment. If you're out riding some super sketchy lines, slip on the Summit Top and at least one thing in your day will make you feel comfortable.

Patagonia Merino ¾ Sleeve

The Best women's mountain bike jerseys of 2021
 
 

Patagonia may still be a bit of a newcomer to the mountain bike market, but they’ve come out swinging with good-looking and better-performing outerwear and their Merino ¾ Sleeve is no exception. Patagonia has dialed in the fit of the Merino ¾ Sleeve jersey so that it looks great off the bike, but has a slightly longer fit and coverage to keep it comfortable while you’re in a riding position.

They couple that perfect fit with a light, soft merino and recycled polyester blend that naturally wicks sweat and has antimicrobial properties to keep it from ever smelling. If you’re looking for a bike jersey with a clean, understated aesthetic that doesn’t look out of place for a casual night on the town, but still performs well on the trail, look no further than the Merino ¾ Sleeve.

Troy Lee Designs Mischief

The Best women's mountain bike jerseys of 2021
 
 

While TLD’s Mischief jersey might look rather simple at first glance, it’s got plenty of hidden features that orient it as a great all-day bike jersey. Troy Lee Designs uses a 4-way stretch fabric throughout the jersey so that it can have a sleek silhouette while still moving easily with your body both on and off the bike. And they’ve included subtle mesh panels under the arms and on the back to help you stay cool, even on the hottest days.

The Mischief jersey also has a 20+ UPF rating to keep ultraviolet light off your skin, and TLD uses flatlock seams throughout to prevent chafing. So whether you’re lining up at the start line of your local enduro series, or you’re headed out for an all-day trail ride, the Mischief jersey has your back.
