Primal Vala Heavyweight Jersey


Why to buy: It's the perfect solution. A cycling jacket is too much and the short-sleeve jersey is too little. This brushed back, thermal jersey is the ultimate compromise for greater warmth, comfort and snazzy style.

A cold but warm day - confusing right? Make cycling simple. Ditch the cycling jacket for now and get yourself a Vala heavyweight jersey. It's the in-between cycling top, made to keep you warm and comfortable, without the hassle of a jacket.

The Primal Vala Jersey's head-turning design with its brushed back thermal fabric means you can ride comfortably when the temperatures start to drop.

The women-specific cut helps keep the heat in and the cold out so you can stay on the saddle despite the cold temperatures. Wear Vala on its own if the weather is cool, or in flattering combination with base layers, gilets or top layers in more inclement conditions.

Zipped up or down, whichever the preference, a full length YKK zip offers extra air flow - what better way to show off your latest base!

Three back pockets allow room for the must-have cycle essentials, such as the pump, banana and (of course) a selfie stick - for that all important summit pose!

Vala could be the bedrock item of clothing to get you through colder rides.

Who's Behind It?

Primal was founded in 1992 by 'real' cyclists. It's an ethos they maintain today: every employee must be a passionate and positive cyclist - but not necessarily a hugely talented one! Their primary aim is to create clothes for cyclists that not only work perfectly, but also look unique, beautiful and full of character.

Their design department is famous in the cycling world, constantly creating ambitious new looks but never allowing style to overwhelm substance. Whilst they are amongst the biggest cycling clothing companies in the world, they stand out by remaining human, approachable and flexible. They go out of their way to avoid becoming a corporate behemoth focused on 'peddling not pedalling'. It's a great approach.

Their Global Headquarters is in Denver, Colorado (lucky them!), but they have been growing within Europe for several years now, and their UK team is fully focused on what is a new market for them. We are hoping to grow with them.

  1. Great warm top

    Review by The TFG

    Completely new to road cycling so was wary of overspending on my first essentials. I was really pleased with the style and feel of this top at such a great price ( I can see where any spare money is going!). Snug fit with handy pockets as you'd expect. Great customer service, very speedy delivery.
