Over the years Castelli has been producing and perfecting the lightweight summer jersey. It's a tricky beast to get right and that's why very few apparel producers have done it correctly. The jersey has to be super-vented, light weight and low volume while maintaining some kind of structural integrity so it will not sag and stretch. And that last part is the tricky part. Castelli got it right and they did so by working directly with Team Garmin riders to produce the Climber Jersey FZ and it's the finest lightweight summer jersey we have seen to date.
The core and essence of the jersey is the Strada Light 3D Mesh fabric. It is low volume and keeps the overall jersey weight to down to a scant 90 grams. It allows perspiration and moisture to escape while simultaneously allowing air flow in for cooling your body temp. The fabric dries almost immediately after it absorbs moisture and sweat. Castelli uses Velocity Mesh fabric on the shoulders and side panels for an exacting fit and improved aerodynamics. Simple and lightweight Lycra trimmings on the waist and end of sleeves helps keep the jersey in place during efforts. Mandatory on a lightweight jersey is a full length zipper. And the Climbers Jersey FZ has a high quality one at that. It's a YKK Vislon zipper and it helps regulate body temp and easy to use while on the bike.
The Climbers Jersey FZ has an anatomic and tailored to fit when on the bike and in the cycling position. Three standard pockets in the rear of the jersey handle storage. Choose size and color.
