Search and State S1-A Riding Jersey

The amount of minimally-branded, high performance, made in the USA cycling jerseys are on the rise. Companies know that people don’t always want to look like moving billboards when they ride and that black is a good, safe tone for a kit. Since I first talked to the guys at Search and State, I knew their S1-A riding jersey would be a smash hit.

Why? For starters, they’re hand made in NYC from a two-toned quick dry microbial fabric. This material has a nice feel to it, is sleek and is milled in the USA. All that aside, these jerseys are durable and quick drying, two essential qualities for a jersey you’ll want to wear just about every day. I’ve put it through the ringer over the past few months and it’s become a staple, alongside my other jerseys. Add in sun sleeves, a merino wool base layer and you’re good to go, even in warm conditions.

Pick up one of the S1-A Riding Jerseys from Search and State here for $125. Believe me, you get what you pay for here. It’s well worth the investment.

For sizing reference, I’m 205 lbs and wear the XL.

    how’s fit/quality compare to Rapha?

      The fit is slim, not as roomy as the Classic jersey. Quality is comparable.

      Specialized 74. Great gloves and a good price.

  • Ace Metric Cycles

    We’re super psyched on these.

    Do these fit really slim? I’m 185 lbs and 6’2″ (regular build, long torso). Not sure if i should get an L or XL..

    • Search and State

      You could probably run a large if you’d like it to fit you slim.  I’m 6’1″ 170 and wear a medium on race days and sometimes a large for training.

    Great jersey…Fit wise it’s more of a “club fit” than “race fit” with slightly longer/larger diameter sleeves. If comparing to Rapha somewhere between the pro jersey and classic jersey. 

    Now if they’d only make bibs…

    The “perforated” look reminds me of my Selle Turbo.  Must have this jersey.  Looking good!!

    itching for one of these.  it really seems like you’re getting a lot for your money, given where it’s sourced/produced/designed.  i’m just waiting for a color other than black; i already have the cycling ninja look down pretty well.  my only gripe is no pump loop; i love those.
