Bought this elite pursuit version in true red/black and the elite black/black version. Both in XXL. The fit is outstanding and the material is top of the line. I wish there were more colors available in XXL, I'd buy them all. 6'00", 220 lb muscular build and the arms actually fit me unlike most Euro jerseys. I wear XXL in Primal & PI, 3XL in Castelli just for comparison's sake.
What a great product. I own quite a few Castelli, Primal and PI jerseys, this is my favorite. This is the 2011 in-R-cool version too. The fabric is thin, durable and almost silk-like, but it's better! I have larger biceps and this is one of the few jerseys that actually doesn't choke my arms into submission. Bought the XXL version at 6'00, 220 lbs. Came back and bought the white/black version too. Just as a point of reference, I wear XXL in Primal, XXL in PI, and 3XL in Castelli jerseys.
Testing out a new Fizik Aliante saddle. After 80 miles of test rides, this is a keeper. I'm going to try the versus edition of this saddle and buy the one that's more comfortable.
The fit is dead on (XXL, size 46 shoe) and the look is unique. The scorpion is huge and looks great. Durable neoprene and a heavy duty velcro strap. My feet sweat internally, but the wind & rain doesn't get through the shoe vents to freeze my toes. 2 pairs of socks and these covers can handle 35-40 degrees for 3 hours with ease.
Great looking sock in person...even though I bury them under Sidi's and Castelli shoe covers. Fit is superb, XXL fits size 11 (46) perfectly. I'll buy the black as well once they're back in stock.
Super thin thermal material is brushed on the inside for warmth and comfort. I wear this underneath my roubaix fabric skull cap on cold, windy days. I'm a 7 5/8 hat size and this works for me, but it is quite snug. As with anything Castelli, the colors are well thought out and vivid.
Wore these out on a 35 mile, 38 degree ride in upstate NY in February and they performed beautifully. Multiple 40-50 mile rides between 40-50 degrees felt even better. Yes, they fit snug. Yes, they're European sizing. I'm 6', 225 lbs and the XXL fit very comfortably. If you have a huge beer gut, buy another brand. The progetto x2 pad is the best I've used to date. The shoulder straps are silky soft, but durable after several washings and the leg zippers are heavy duty quality. I'll be buying the knicker version soon.
