Fall and Spring weather is difficult to dress for. Short sleeve jerseys are often too breathable, where as a winter jacket will have you dripping in sweat. The Castelli Free Jersey FZ is a mid-weight, long sleeve for those shoulder season rides.
The Free Jersey FZ was constructed from Castelli's Warmer material on the body. This breathable mid-weight fabric features a soft fleece inside which, in addition to be comfortable against the skin, keeps your core dry. Warmer's inherent wicking properties spread perspiration quickly and evenly for efficient evaporation. This ensures that your core stays dry. A dry core in cool weather is a key to keeping warm. This jersey is recommended for temperatures in the 59 to 68 degree range. In the dead of winter, it is the perfect layer beneath the Castelli Free Jacket FZ.
Enabling the fabric's technical properties is a form-fit that is the product of a century of custom-tailoring. Castelli knows a thing or two about fit. It defined modern cycling wear with many firsts, including Lycra shorts. An example of Castelli's innovation, used in the Free Jersey, is the sleeves — they were articulated forward. This allows for maximum contact between the skin and the jersey, which enhances Warmer's insulating properties. It also eliminates excess material while in riding position. Continuing its commitment to cycling specific fit, Castelli re-visited the design of the Free Jersey. It used their new Warmer X-Stretch fabric on the sleeves to allow an even closer fit. You'll look slimmer and faster to your friends and to the wind.
A full-length camlock zipper allows you to adjust the amount of ventilation — the zipper will not slip while riding. The high collar keeps the chill out. The Free Jersey's lower hem has a wide silicon gripper to prevent riding up, and the three rear pockets are extra deep and easy to reach when riding. Reflective tabs have been added for low-light visibility.
Castelli is known for bold, yet classic graphics and the Free Jersey FZ is no exception. It is available in four colors: Orange/white, Ocean/white, Deep blue/white, and Black/white, and in sizes Small through XXX-Large.

Good mid-weight jersey
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Good jersey for sunny day mountain biking in mid 40's, or road riding with a windproof vest. Fits true to size, unlike my Castelli windproof jacket where I had to size up. Partly helps it's very stretchy, so fits to your body.
