Test: Finisseur Pro 2 jersey
Within its Pro 2 line, Finisseur offers this sophisticated tight and sporty pattern jersey. A garment that we have thoroughly tested and that is therefore aimed at a demanding user looking for a high-performance fit jersey, but at a modest price.
When you try on the Finisseur Pro 2 jersey for the first time, one of the first sensations you notice is its remarkable elasticity. On top of other qualities, the Pro 2 adapts, yields and stretches according to your anatomy. Not in vain, 30% of its composition is elastane, the fabric used predominantly in quality jerseys and sports cuts, where adaptation to the cyclist’s body is fundamental. In this sense, this Finisseur jersey undoubtedly has elasticity and adaptability as one of its strengths.
Obviously, the elasticity capacity is not infinite and unless you make a mistake in the size, it is unlikely that the Pro 2 will generate tension or compress you anywhere in your anatomy, as can happen in other more resistant jerseys when we stretch their fabrics.
Some aspects that we particularly liked about this Pro 2 are the qualities of comfort that some of its elements offer. We especially like the “Camlock” type zipper with a bottom flap, which prevents the zipper from coming into direct contact with your skin. This is especially appreciated for a garment that you will be using largely in the summer and therefore probably without an undershirt, without any kind of barrier between the jersey and the skin.
On the other hand, we find one detail more than remarkable, in view of the modest price of the jersey, it is the care that has been taken on the inside the garment, with flat seams and long laser-cut sleeves, as well as the absence of a label on the inside of the collar (the logo and inscription of the size are printed on the fabric). This makes the garment pleasant and comfortable to touch.
Although it may seem irrelevant, the weight of the garment, together with an adequate design, greatly contribute to the feeling of lightness and freedom of movement that a garment offers, much more if it is designed for sports. This is the case of the Finisseur Pro 2, made with Italian MITI technical fabrics based on elastic microfibers. Very lightweight fabrics that ultimately make the jersey barely register 132 g on the scales, about 20-30 g less than usual for jerseys in this price range. An aspect to consider for those who appreciate lightness, from the physical point of view, tangible on the scales, but also from the point of view of the sensation when you are on the go.
On the move
As we have mentioned before, the Pro 2 feels like a quality jersey that has excellent comfort if we compare it to other similar garments in terms of model and price. Its elastic fabric, the care in the elaboration of its seams and the slim cut of its design will leave you feeling great.
It is not the most breathable jersey on the market, as its microfibers do not have the microperforation of other fabrics, which makes its fabric soak up sweat fairly quickly. Anyway, in most cases and weather conditions, it can be a good option to wear with an undershirt, which will help to keep the skin dry, in any case.
It is difficult to find another jersey that, for only 64 euros, surpasses Finisseur’s Pro 2 in terms of quality of design and comfort due to the careful work on its seams, zipper and pattern. When running, it is extremely comfortable due to the elasticity and lightness of the fabric.
