Castelli Cycling Jerseys Take you to the Finish Line Faster
The main task of cycling jerseys and generally sports jerseys is moisture management. Technical Polyester fabrics absorb perspiration from the body and wick it towards the surface where it is quickly dried. Polyester fabrics, in addition, lend themselves for colourful print, hence they are ideal for sports jerseys of any kind.
Castelli jerseys offer more than mere moisture management. Castelli was the first manufacturer to launch the Race-Fit on the market from the year 2000 on. Up to then, such fits were only created for professional cycling sports. Based on their Professional Cycling Clothing, Castelli began developing collections for performance-driven leisure-time cyclists. When the first “Aero Race“ jersey by Castelli appeared on the market it immediately became a hit. The function called “aerodynamics“, from then on, turned out to be very relevant in cycling clothing, also for leisure-time cyclists. The characteristics of Castelli “Aero Race“ jerseys were and still are:
- an extremely close fit
- the cut is adapted to the Race position, bent down very low
- the sleeves feature a longer cut
- a flat collar construction
- very low weight
- smooth, highly elastic and lightweight micro fibre fabrics in combination with airy mesh material
- lasercut hems are very flat and protect your skin
Castelli jerseys are wind tunnel tested for their drag. Professional cyclists test the “Aero Race“ jerseys by Castelli and support their development. Not only the fit is considered, but also the surface structures. Ultra-smooth fabrics, fabrics with dimple texture, as known from gulf balls, or ribbed fabrics let the air pass more targetedly, thus enhancing aerodynamics. Currently, version 6.0 of the “Aero Race“ jerseys by Castelli are available. The next generation 6.1 is being developed.
Another highlight in terms of cycling jerseys was the development of the ”Climber’s“ jersey by Castelli. With this jersey, maximum ventilation was added to aerodynamics. Castelli‘s “Climber’s“ jersey was developed specifically for mountain climbs or tours on very hot summer days. It is made completely from differently structured mesh fabrics, strategically placed, which allow for optimal ventilation, preventing the body from overheating.
Of course, matching the Castelli cycling jerseys ”Aero Race“ and ”Climber’s“, Castelli cycling trousers and Castelli Race Bodysuits, were also developed, plus complementing accessories. A complete collection to simply make you faster!
