Description

All day, every day.

One thing that makes us feel grown-up, if not exactly pro, is when we can buy matching bibs and jerseys. Back in the day we may have sported wildly mismatching outfits, usually not by choice; but by now we feel a certain satisfaction in looking a little better put together. So be sure to treat yourself to the Castelli Velocissimo Equipe Full-Zip Short Sleeve Jersey once you get the Caselli Velocissimo Equipe Bib Shorts.

Balancing comfort and performance, the Velocissimo Gruppo Full-Zip Short Sleeve Jersey makes use of the Castelli workhorse fabric Prosecco Strada. It may look and feel like a classic cycling jersey fabric, but it is, in fact, a giant step forward. Unlike normal poly jerseys, the Velocissimo Gruppo jersey has a controlled stretch that means that it will conform to your contours without restricting your movements. And even though the stretch gives the jersey a natural cling, you won't have to worry about overheating since the Prosecco Hydrophylic treatment works to keep you dry by moving sweat to the outer surface where it can spread out over a larger surface area, allowing for quicker evaporation. And if that isn't enough to keep you cool, the side panels have also been made from mesh.

Since a proper fit is so important to Castelli, they used inset sleeves that form perfectly to the shape of your shoulders so that you will enjoy an anatomic fit either in the saddle or in the coffee shop. Three rear patch pockets have been included so that you can carry all the items that you may need on an all-day outing. The jacquard elastic at the rear hem will help in keeping the jersey from sliding around from side to side once you load up the pockets. The full-length YKK zipper will help you keep your front ventilated, and makes it easier to take off the jersey without pouring out all the contents in your pockets if you need to take a pit stop.

The Castelli Velocissimo Equipe Full-Zip Short Sleeve Jersey comes with reflective tabs so that you'll be more visible to the cars after the sun goes down. Available in Black/White, Acid Green/White and Red/White, you'll be able to find the perfect fit with their size options running from Small through XXX-Large.

  • Mesh side panels provide additional ventilation on those longer climbs
  • Stretch inset sleeves hug your shoulders for an ergonomic in-the-saddle fit
  • 3 generous back pockets house plenty of storage for snacks, gels, tools, or anything else you need to bring along

good jersey

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i got one of these earlier this season i like it. Its very comfortable and stylish with nice pocket placement in the rear. They do run slightly smaller so i would suggest sizing up once, maybe twice if you are a weight lifter. Overall great jersey!

Great Jersey...but size up

This jersey is better than the picture, and just as described by the other reviews. I'm 5"9 and 168 and normally get XL in Castelli when ordering a jersey. After reading the comments regarding the fit , I chose to size up to an XXL. This cut is slimmer than the others, and XXL fit perfectly. I got the red/white and its great. Just remember to size up one more

Size

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

Just received product in the mail
I am 41 inch chest, and the XXL fit me best.
Ridiculous haha. Usually I am a medium or large. My advice is size up TWO sizes.

Otherwise great!

Slightly Funny Fit

I have another Castelli extra large (5' 11" and 165lbs) that fits perfectly. This XL one is somewhat tight through the shoulders, (normal through the rest of the body) but I would still buy it again.

Runs way small

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

I wear a medium t-shirt and ordered a large and it's still way too tight in the shoulders. You have to be wasting away from protein deficiency to fit into this jersey.

Runs Very Small

I'm used to the Castelli fit, and I know that I typically have to order their jerseys a size up. This one runs way too small though.

I'm 5'11" 180 lbs with a 32" waist & 44" chest. I am a L or XL in t-shirts depending on fit, and a XXL in other Castelli jerseys. This one felt like I was going to rip the arm pits if I lifted my arm.

Cut for riding, not standing

Great looking jersey, the fabric is feather light. A bit challenging to find the right size because of the riding-position cut, and small through the chest for sure. Went with XL (5' 10" 168lbs). I wish it had a gripper on the waist elastic. Other than that - great stuff.

Great jersey but ...

Great product but size chart was wrong. my husband is 6"7 for 205Lb with a chest measurement of 107cm and the XXL was REALLY too tight at the chest and arms openings. Length was fine. Castelli do size a bit tight so I had checked their chart to make sure it would be OK. The XXL mentioned a 110cm chest capacity...well that's not right! I return it today to get a size up.

Photos online don't do it justice

Picked up this jersey to match my Castelli Free Aero Race bib shorts in XXL. I'm 6'3"/195 lbs with a 34" waist. XXL is a nice, tight, aero race fit. The red really looks sharp in person, which is the color I purchased, but I have also seen it in black which looks pretty sweet too. The photos online don't do this jersey justice as it looks great in person.

Love the material as well as the fit. Sleeves are tight and IMO the perfect length. They don't slide up my arms, even though they don't have elastic. No grippers around the waist, but has not been an issue on any of my rides. Seems like this jersey will hold up well and last for many seasons.

Velocissimo Jersey

What a beautiful jersey this is! I bought it in red and it works and feels as good as all of the Castelli kit. Extremely good looking and extremely aero as well.

One thing for the potential buyer: this is a RACE fit. I am a 45" chest and 5' 10" tall at 195 lbs. I would normally order a XXL, but not with the Velocissimo - you will need to go up one size - I bought the XXXL and it is like a second skin.

Wanting to know if these are COTTON jersey or RAYON jersey?

Responded on

This jersey is synthetic material that wicks sweat away to keep you dry. Definitely not cotton.
