Description

Keep your race-day edge through the winter.

In the past year, we've seen Castelli do something unusual, yet welcomed -- making winter versions of our favorite summer-weight jerseys. And the latest in this line of adaptable jerseys is the Aero Long Sleeve Jersey. Featuring the same cut and aerodynamic properties of the Aero jersey, the Aero Long Sleeve uses breathable, warming fabrics to make it the ideal cool weather jersey.

It seems like a simple idea -- take your most aerodynamic jersey and add some thermal stuff to it. Not the case for Castelli. Retaining both the shape and aero properties, while using weightier fabrics, required a thoughtful approach. First, and most obvious, the materials need to provide warmth. However, they also need to be resilient to cold winds without throttling breathability. What fabric encompasses all of these characteristics and still has race-day aerodynamics? Thermoflex Lite. This material has an incredible amount of stretch to eliminate the folds and bunching that disrupt airflow over the jersey. Its tight weave also makes the front of the jersey resistant to wind. So, you'll be aerodynamically slippery while shielding yourself from icy chills. To deal with general, atmospheric cold, the inner-lining features a high loft that warms while pulling moisture away from the skin. And aside from this, the fabric is extremely soft as to eliminate the threat of abrasion.

For the rear of the jersey, Castelli used its Warmer material to promote a heightened level of breathability and structure. In conjunction with the rear hem's silicone gripper, the jersey retains its shape and fit when the three rear pockets are loaded up with your ride essentials. Castelli has also added reflective elements throughout the jersey for added visibility in low-light conditions.

The Castelli Aero Long Sleeve Jersey is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Black/white and Red/black.

Slick Fall Jersey

This jersey is pretty cool, the Aero kits are pretty nice, but I wanted a long-sleeve. I chose this kit for minimal bulk and thermoflex lining. It's great for days between 45-60 with minimal layering; when the temperature drops it's best to put a wind proof layer underneath or over the top. The sleeves are nice an long for me in L, I'm 6'4" and twiggy. It's not as snug as the Aero shortsleeve, and there's a little too much fabric across the chest and the sipper bunches. A bit too much of an American cut, I guess.

I liked the overall form, fit, function & materials.
However, I was unhappy with the quality of the zipper installation.
Specifically, the fabric was mis-aligned or slightly bunched up, so that the seam between the fabric and the zipper was uneven.
I thought it might self correct if I washed it, but no luck.
I returned it as I felt it was a defect. At this price point, you should not have to settle for even minor defects. This was right in the middle of my chest and quite visible.
However, I did order another one, with the hope that this was a one off issue.
