Cyling jersey and MTB jersey
What are the appearance difference?
When we say the cycling generally means cycling on the road, and you need to choose a narrow tire. With the MTB (mountain bicycle) a wider tire would be the best choose. And sometime we also call the MTB jersey (mountain bike jersey) and DH jersey (downhill jersey).
But what’s the difference with them? When you wondering about and search on the internet maybe you’ll confused more, cause so many photos around here but nobody can give you a firm answer. Let’s have a check for the jersey photos for both the road and mountain.

What’s the fit difference?
Through the photos, we can learn typically the cycling are tighter, with the full zipper on the front, the front panel is shorter cause you need to bent over when you cycling, the back panel is longer than the front panel to protect the waist. The cycling wear is more like a tight fit to against air make your speed being as fast as possible. Also there are 3 rear pockets on the back, to carry your food, tools, bottles, cards. Cause most of the time you’ll fighting with yourself on the road with around 5-8 hours when you ready for a long trip, need water, food supplements.

But MTB jersey prefer no pockets, and no zipper on the front. Most importantly, the MTB jersey is a very loose fit. Cause the mountain rider need to more rooms to do the actions.
Generally the cycling wear with short sleeve and long sleeve, but for the MTB jersey it have a extra 3/4 sleeve, this is rarely to see on the cycling wear.

And what I can carry with the 3 pockets?
I got many feedback and the main question is: why the road have a pocket and the MTB jersey don’t?
This is actually one same question, you can put everything want to carry, pump, water bottle, arm/knee/leg warmers, wind vest, rain jacket, etc. Again, everything you want to quick access to.
But for myself, I don’t recommend put your cell phone on the 3 rear zipper pockets, I prefer to keep my cell phone in my backpack, I am really fear of losing it or popping out.
The other question often being asked is: the cycling all with tight fit, how about if I need a loose fit, is this possible?
Sure, of course, you can custom the size as you want. They are have 2 fits: one with the race cut (tight fit), and the other is club cut (loose fit).
