Castelli found inspiration for their Superleggera Jersey while riding Switzerland's FlÃ¼ela Pass between Davos and the Engadin Valley. While riding through the thin air of the pass, one of Castelli's designers passed a Lamborghini Superleggera, giving him the inspiration for this iconic jersey. Here, they used technologies and experience for the highest levels of pro racing, adapted into an extremely lightweight and aero road-going jersey. Using bits of their 50g stretch woven fabric, an ultralight and ultra-wicking Futura 50g fabric on the front and sleeves, and a 3D mesh fabric liner on the back to support the pockets. Finally, they added a handy zippered key pocket for added storage and comfort.
Futura 50g main fabric is lightweight and provides excellent moisture management
Compression band in 90g stretch woven fabric maintains a secure and comfortable fit
3D mesh fabric inserts provide support in the rear
I like most aspects of the jersey. The fit is great and it breathes really well. The pockets are plenty large and stay in place. My problem is with the cuffs on the sleeves. They are just barely too tight. They don't leave my skin irritated, but I would be more comfortable if they were a little looser. I'm 5'9" and 145 lbs and the medium is perfect. My arms are certainly not large, but the cuffs are still tight.
Castelli tops generally run a size small, I usually wear a L, but purchased an XL. I have a 40" chest. Arms felt a bit snug, but after a few rides, feels fine. One serious complaint, the center of the stomach, zipper, tends to pop outward, away from your stomach. when I'm standing normal, it pops out another 2-3" away from my stomach. Not the greatest fit or quality in the mid section. I have two other Castelli tops, and they fit perfect in XL, with no imperfections. I did purchase this on sale, maybe it was a 2nd, or return item. I still wear it, but try not to walk around to much, since it looks weird . Also, stains are almost impossible to remove.
