Women’s Jersey Sizing & Fit

To size our women’s kit, we use a unique ‘benchmark’ system.
Using the guide below, measure the key measurements of your favourite jersey by laying it flat on the floor. Once you have these key measurements, select the size in the chart that’s the closest match to what you already have.
For sizes that are in-between, we generally advise to go to the next size if the measurement is more than 1.5cm or .5″ greater than what we list.
If you do not see a size to match, contact us and we can look at making a match for you.

Size Me Down

So you’ve been riding, a lot, and the ELEVEN vélo kit you bought is now flapping in the wind? Well, we want to make sure the kit that got you to where you are now, will keep you going a whole lot further.

If you’ve dropped a full size or three (in a minimum of three months) and find that the ELEVEN vélo kit you bought no longer fits like it once did, we will offer to replace it for you for 50% of the current listed price. All you need to do is contact us and send the kit to be downsized back to ELEVEN vélo. In return you’ll get brand new kit that fits like it should and you can pick up where you left off, riding lots!

Fabric Tech

M3 Shell

The M3 shell is a unique Merino laminate, with a wind proof and moisture transferring membrane sandwiched between a tough DWR face and a pure Merino inner. Key features of the M3 are:

  • Very thin
  • Moderate Stretch – unique to a shell fabric
  • Highly breathable
  • Highly water repellent
  • Can be machine washed like any Merino garment

Emphatex

Our Emphatex shell uses a super lightweight nylon base, that has been coated in a teflon outer coating and a hydrophylic polymer coating on the inside. This delivers exceptional water repellency, wind blocking and breathability in a shell that is easily folded down to fit in a pocket. We and many riders have used this textile for many years and it never ceases to amaze us that something so lightweight can be so effective.

Key features:

  • Super thin
  • Super lightweight
  • Highly breathable
  • Highly water repellent

The Superfine Merino fabric we use is 17-18.5 micron, 100% Australian grown, spun and woven. Learn more about Merino Here.

Care

For best results and product longevity, we suggest the following care instructions:

  • Cold to warm wash. Cold wash for best results.
  • Hang or warm machine dry. Hang dry is preferable.
  • Do not bleach.
