If you had to choose a design cue from the last 10 years of cycling that was the most unlikely choice to have staying power — other than the incomprehensible brown shorts of AG2R-La Mondiale that Velo Jones likes — the argyle patterns of the various incarnations of the Garmin team would have to be near the top of the list.
Though none has had the same flash as that glorious 2009 incarnation, a jersey with argyle means Garmin. In this case, the 2012 Garmin Barracuda jersey features the now-iconic pattern across the bottom, along with the return of blue as a prominent piece of the design puzzle.
Garmin Barracuda team apparel is made by Castelli, which means you'll get high-tech materials and a streamlined fit. Prosecco Strada fabric is lightweight and moves moisture efficiently, while the mesh side panels will help keep you cooler to begin with.
Add a locking, full-length zipper up front, a silicone gripper around the waist and three rear pockets, and you're ready to ride. Note: This is a form-fit jersey, so if you like a looser fit, consider going up a size.
