I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour – Emanuelle Alt

Despite appreciating the odd splash of colour, usually on other people, my clothing colour palette is what some might describe as… well, lacking.

Much to Victoria’s amusement, my off-bike wardrobe is an embarrassingly tri-partite colourway with shades of grey, blue and black – no others shall pass!

As you might expect, my on-bike uniform adheres to similarly strict parameters; only recently have I branched out and allowed Velobici’s Maroon Rene jersey to disrupt my equilibrium – it is a beautiful thing (and looks great with black).

With all that in mind, I decided to bring you a run-down of my favourite black cycling jerseys for 2017. There are some stunners in here – be prepared to part with some cash…

We all know Matt’s favourite colour is black. But as Coco Chanel said, black has it all – and it’s not only the boys who can embrace the dark side of cycling.

I imposed black; it is still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around – Coco Chanel

Here’s the Vamper.cc round up of the chicest, coolest, stealthiest black cycling jerseys of 2017. Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments section if you think we’ve missed any good ones! (And if you’re a male cyclist in search of some cool black jerseys, check out Matt’s round up of the best black cycling jerseys for men.)

Isadore Women’s Echelon Jersey, €155

Coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

The minimalist design and aggressive cut of the Isadore Apparel Echelon jersey sends this one straight to the top of the leaderboard. Yes, the cyclist in orange looks fine. But her counterpart, in stealthy jet black, looks cool AF. We’ve worn a fair bit of Isadore cyclewear, and we’ve been super impressed by the quality. The Echelon jersey features Isadore’s Sanitized® technology to make the jersey bacteria- and odour-resistant (which sounds good to this sweaty girl!) It’s designed to be super durable so it should be worth the investment.

Pedal Mafia Women’s Cycling Tech Jersey, AUD $159

Some days, you just want an easy, stylish option that requires no thought about coordination. The Pedal Mafia Black Tech Jersey with its sharp white logo has a super clean feel to it.

And while it may be stealthy in colour, it features a reflective zip and centre panel which shines when light hits it. Stylish and safe.

Tenspeed Hero Women’s Race Fit Black Sprinkles Jersey, US $150

coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

Black and white is an utterly classic combo. Bright stars against a night sky; the timelessness of black and white photos; yin and yang.

This black and white kit from Ten Speed Hero is chic and functional – everything you could want. It has a sleek race cut with features sure to appeal to serious cyclists: special mesh side panels help keep you cool on summer days and help you feel fresh over the long haul. Reflective trim along the pockets adds a touch of shine to keep you safe when you’re cycling at night.

Le Col Women’s HC Jersey, £150
coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

The Hors Categorie jersey is Le Col’s premium jersey. Constructed from a new luxury technical fabric for 2017, Carezza Soft, it’s a high performance jersey with a luxury feel and finish. And if all black isn’t *quite* your thing, it has some cool camo design on the shoulders.

Morvelo Women’s Stealth Stormshield Rain Jersey, £105

coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

Morvelo’s StormShield Rain Jerseys weigh the same as their Superlight jerseys at just 137 grams, but also provide windblocking and waterproofing, which sounds good to us as autumn rapidly approaches. With elbow length sleeves and mesh underarm panels, they offer protection and breathability with great styling.

Milltag Sector Women’s Jersey, £90

coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

Sector is the Milltag premium race collection, and every product has been designed for racing. But that doesn’t mean you can’t wear it on your weekend cafè ride to look like the coolest kid on the block.

Arenberg Epica One Women’s Jersey EJ-1, US $185

coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

The Epica One Jersey may not be all black, but it’s mostly black. And, you know, sometimes a ‘pop’ of colour (as those annoying fashiony types like to say) is all it takes to lift your spirits.

Pas Normal Studios Women’s Mechanism Race Jersey, £147.44

coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

This is an awesome-looking race fit jersey. Lightweight with breathable side and back panels for low moisture absorption and quick drying, it’s functional as well as looking madly cool with its bold white lettering.

Velocio Signature Women’s Short Sleeve Jersey, £115

coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

The Velocio Signature Women’s Short Sleeve Jersey has been reconfigured with new denier gradient fabrics that enhance breathability and moisture wicking properties. It’s a gorgeous design with that subtle band of colour on the right sleeve and super fitted shape specifically for female cyclists. Very sharp indeed.

Figata Ciclismo Women’s Black Cycling Jersey, £43.30 (on sale)

coolest black cycling jerseys for women 2017

Super affordable and stylish to boot, this jersey from Danish cycling brand Figata Ciclismo is a nice piece of kit. We reviewed the brand’s pink and black kit earlier this year.
