The days of women cyclists being forced to wear odd sized men's biking kit or having to don something that is pink or flowery are a long way behind us thankfully! The mountain bike industry as a whole now produces a range of practical and stylish jerseys for women. We've listed the best kit we've tried and tested, read on for our top rated jerseys.

Best women's cycling jerseys
To jump to a particular jersey, use the links below:
The Leatt DBX 2.0 women's short sleeve jersey is a t-shirt style top with a loose fit and a casual style for summer riding. It's comfy and stretchy, but it's not as cool as claimed – and if you don't wear armour, you may want to size down.
The women's Launch jersey from Pearl Izumi has enviable eco credentials and a great fit for summer mountain biking. The only thing to stomach is the price, but when performance is good and fit is sweet, it's worth reaching into your pocket for the extra cash.
The Cube AM women's round neck jersey is a stylish long sleeve top that's super soft and comfy against the skin, yet relatively robust too. It's a massive leap in the right direction for the bike brand – subtly branded and not lacking in the performance department.
Just like the Kuler jersey we reviewed recently the Morvelo Women’s Friday Short Sleeved MTB jersey scores high for comfort, fit and style. It’s a statement piece that we think is well worth the money.
The women’s Troy Lee Designs Skyline short sleeved jersey is a light and breathable jersey that is perfect for all types of summer trail riding. It’s stretchy and dries out quickly too, there’s lots to like.
The Giro Roust women’s short sleeved jersey is a light and breathable jersey. It doesn't have any features to set it apart from the crowd but despite this, it's a versatile piece for the summer and shoulder seasons.
The new women’s mountain bike clothing range from Nukeproof is full of technical pieces of riding kit that perform well, fit great and are subtly ‘cool’ without shouting the brand's name in your face. The Blackline women’s jersey is no different, a quick-drying, short-sleeved number that has become a staple for summer riding.
The ION women’s Scrub Amp long sleeved jersey is a firm favourite due to its cool looks and, soft touch material and outstanding performance whatever the weather. It’s Rachael's ‘go to’ jersey for all types of riding, perfectly comfortable and with good wicking capabilities with or without a baselayer or under a jacket. The ION Tee LS Scrub Amp Jersey doesn’t come cheap though, at £70 it’s one of the more expensive jersey’s we have reviewed. Despite that we don’t think you will be disappointed with the purchase should you spend the dollar.
The Edge jersey from Ride It Clothing is a robust mountain bike top that will keep you dry and comfortable whatever the weather. There are lots of features packaged in a well-built jersey, all for less than £40, making this jersey a winner. Both ladies and gents can get a Ride It Clothing Edge jersey direct from their website in a multitude of colours and sizes. It’s a jersey that will let you get on and just ‘ride it’ with minimal fuss and maximum performance and will likely last you a good few years of hard abuse!
