We all owe who we are to our surroundings, and we are very proud of our home in Ojai, California. So we wanted to make a tribute to California, and Tim fell down a rabbit hole! Did you know that the land now known as California was named by Spanish explorers after a fictional island from a 16th century romance novel? The name of the island, California, and the island's queen, Calafia, likely come from the Arabic word "Khalifa," meaning "successor."
Our Kalifornia Repeats design is a subtle nod to the origin of the name California, on top of just being a cool design!
The base for this jersey is the Giro Roust. The Roust Jersey features lightweight, breathable construction with short sleeves for warm weather days or anytime you want a jersey that feels like it disappears. The moisture-wicking polyester fabric is combined with mesh back and side panels to keep you dry and cool, and the interior lens wipe allows you to clean your goggles or glasses quickly. The fit is relaxed for a stylish, comfortable feel that's also compatible with pads. That's why it's our favorite jersey for long summer days on the trail.
