Team Issue Jersey
Available in black or white, the Team Issue is a crowd pleaser – if we believed in playing to the crowd. Available in our standard size run this jersey fits every bit as well as it looks. 16 panels of the finest materials are combined into a kit that no one in town will have (unless you live in Minneapolis, MN, home of the DL.)

The "Team Issue" kit was designed specifically around the Curt Goodrich Cyclocross Team Issue bike. The chest, sleeves, and collar are all matched to the Goodrich Team Blue. The memorable font and top stitching add a hard but refined look. Wear it in your next race, or on your next ride to the bar, all we ask is that you represent the team well.
Sizing: DL Short Sleeve Jerseys are designed for cyclists looking for a more pro or race fit jersey. They are designed to be snug, but never tight (due to the Italian mesh panels on the sides and back). They will not cut off your circulation, but if you are looking for something baggy, this is probably not the right jersey (or order 2 sizes too big).
The white fabric is the ultimate lightweight material, white to reflect the sun, supple, durable (mountain biker test group selected it for its non snagging properties), and breathable. White is so Pro, keep it clean and ride clean. If you crash give it to your kid brother and get a new one.
The Black fabric is the Rouleur, a bit thicker than the white with a touch less stretch and a cool crown pattern. Black and will attract the sun as well as the opposite sex, but fashion hurts so shut up and stop bitching. Remember black is thinning.
Sleeves: the sleeves are long on the short sleeve jersey, they are designed to cover 75% of your biceps. We did this on purpose; we love the feel and the look.
Some people have requested shorter sleeves for skin tanning reasons. We named our hats after a skin cancer survivor, our goal is not more sun exposure but a bad ass looking jersey. Our general stance is that looking cool on a bike is way more important than increasing the risk of skin cancer.
