To faithfully guide you back to Tour form.
Though Castelli has made a point of creating jerseys that meet the demands of Team Garmin Barracuda, it also recognizes that many of us are happy with jerseys that provide a comfortable fit. It's not that we don't like having the best possible quality, it's just that we like to have enough coin left over to face our significant others with a clear conscience. Not surprisingly, Castelli delivers this with its Fuga Jersey.
Castelli has designed the Fuga to give you a comfortable race cut that you'll continually reach for, whether you’re heading out on a century or to a circuit race with your local velo club. Remarkably, the jersey that Castelli self-styles as a 'performance jersey for normal people' is an improvement over the 'race fit' of other manufacturers' jerseys. Its 15-panel construction matches your form on the bike. So, when you stand up straight, you'll experience a slight tug at the arm pits and chest, but once you're down in the drops or stretched over the hoods, it'll feel perfect.
Castelli incorporated five lightweight and moisture wicking fabrics at strategic locations of the Fuga. Essentially, each fabric corresponds to the different requirements at each zone. For example, where you need ventilation, like around the arm pits, you get an airy mesh. Meanwhile, the limited stretch material of the back panel will keep the jersey from shifting and sagging when the three ample rear pockets are loaded up. Furthering the security of the fit is a microfiber jacquard gripper at the rear of the jersey.
Reflective tabs have also been added in order to keep you visible to motorists in low-light conditions.
The Castelli Fuga Jersey is available in six sizes from Small though XXX-Large and in the colors Red/black, Black/white, and Grey/anthracite. Please note that Castelli estimates a useful temperature range of about 63 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit for this jersey.

Fuga and Punto Tre Fit..
I am 5'7", 154lbs. 38" chest, 30" waist.. fairly in shape but not super fit.
For guys that are not super slim/race build, I suggest one size up (like everybody else) for the Racer fit cuts such as the Punto Tre but on the Fuga, u can stay with the medium size..
Great jersey, order at least one size up
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I just got this jersey last weekend and took it out for a 40 mi ride in 60 degree weather. I loved it the whole ride, the fit and comfort are great, and no pocket sag. My wife says it's the best-looking jersey I own. Do be aware that this is European sizing though:
Pearl Izumi L = Gore Bike Wear L = Sugoi L = Twin Six XL = Castelli XXL
