Here's a design challenge. Make a tank top that functions like a jersey without turning it into a sleeveless jersey. Think. Draw. Pencils down. Does it look like the Castelli Perla Bravette Women's Sleeveless Top? Probably not. Since its inception, the Perla has been Castelli's most popular jersey design -- a testament to its ingenuity and insightful design.

This jersey has been constructed from Castelli's Softlex fabric for its comfort, stretch, and moisture management properties. And while it's composition is not one of organic fiber, the material has been engineered to retain a cotton-like feel and aesthetic. More importantly, though, Softlex performs the aforementioned duties with vigor. Accordingly, it feels incredible on the skin without a base layer, and of equal merit, it efficiently transports moisture from the skin to the quick-drying surface of the jersey.

In terms of stretch, you'll find that Softlex's natural elasticity provides a complete freedom of movement. Furthermore, this attribute has been intensified through Castelli's hallmark fit. Essentially, this jersey has been designed on an anatomic curve that not only takes the female body into account, but the female body within the cycling position. As a result, the jersey follows your movements in the saddle, almost predicting them. This way, abrasion is minimized, and the jersey's structure becomes exceptionally flattering to the figure. Additionally, Castelli designed the Perla with a dropped neck and supportive microfiber shoulder straps in order to reinvent the look and feel of cycling jerseys.

To house your ride essentials, Castelli has included three ample sized rear pockets. And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, the jersey features reflective accents throughout. Please note that no shelf bra has been built in, as Castelli believes you'd rather go with a sport bra you know and love rather than take a chance on one that you're unfamiliar with.

The Castelli Perla Bavett Women's Sleeveless Top is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Acqua, Black, Pink Fluo, and White.

Great Summer Top

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have 2 of the tops in white and 1 in black. The pockets on the back are a great size and easy to get in/out of. The material is soft and feels comfortable on hot summer days. After multiple washes and dryer tumbles they still hold their shape and the black hasn't faded a bit. I haven't had a problem with the straps being too loose as SHEA74 suggested but I'm 5'7" so it might be because of my extra height.

Love the Perla feel

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have a couple of Perla jerseys so I knew I loved the material. Needed something for hot summer rides. This will work but the straps were kind of loose. They won't fall down but they just aren't as tight as I'd like. For $20 this is a steal. I got the pink in small and I'm 5' 112lbs.
