Castelli's Velocissimo Full-Zip jersey is a mid-weight jersey, ideal for rides in the transitional seasons or early summer mornings when the mercury is still hovering around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Its body is made from ProSecco Strada material, which uses targeted stretch to let the designers dial in a perfect fit for riding postures. While it may feel somewhat restrictive across the chest off the bike, the jersey clicks into place when you clip into your pedals. The material's ProSecco treatment diffuses moisture across the jersey's surface for lower concentration and faster evaporation. Mesh side panel inserts boost breathability and cooling.
In an industry dominated by swooping lines and contoured graphics, the Velocissimo stands out for all the right reasons. The straight lines and right angles of its design will set you apart in a crowd at a race or a charity ride. We'd feel a bit sheepish to finish such a functional jersey's description with a paean to its aesthetics, so we'll give the final word to the three rear pockets and their reflective tabs, which provide enough cargo space for all your traveling gear while helping to keep you visible in low-light conditions.
