What better way to show your Campy pride than donning some of its new attire? For those hot summer rides, Campagnolo offers the highly breathable Iridio Jersey designed to keep you cooler and drier during intervals and earning those bragging rights at the weekly World Championships. Campy builds the Iridio with moisture wicking materials and strategic ventilation panels in a race-ready fit so you're riding in more comfort at tempo when the temperatures start tickling 3-digit figures.
Sports scientist have known for quite a while that keeping the core cooler is important from a performance and safety standpoint. That's why you'll often see cyclist sporting ice vests before the start of a warm event or even soigneurs handing out stockings full of ice that riders will put under their jerseys during racing. While these techniques aren't practical on most rides, having the Iridio jersey on is, as it features lightweight and breathable materials at the sleeve and side panels to easily exhaust excessive body heat. The sleeves are also slightly longer so you won't have to slather on as much sunscreen and the openings are finished with a lycra hem to gently keep them in place without excessive binding or squeezing. On the front and back panels, a slightly denser yet still breathable fabric helps maintain the race fit and better shields you from the sun's rays.
If hill repeats or extended climbing is on the docket, you'll quickly appreciate the full-length YKK Camlock zipper with Campagnolo shield pull-tab that allows you to dump excess body heat on the climbs and lets fresh air in. When zipped all the way up or down, the pull is housed at either end in a garage that keeps it from irritating you as you pedal and allows for a smoother passage of air. Finally, longer days mean longer rides, so the two ample sized rear pockets offer room for ride snacks and are angled for easy access on the fly.

Fantastic Warm Weather Jersey!
This is a fabulous jersey at a reasonable price. The variety of technical fabrics and quality construction are in the same league as Rapha and other top shelf brands. Fit is comparable to Castelli and other European brands. I wear size L Rapha jerseys and size XL Castelli jerseys and this fits well; slightly roomier than race fit, but certainly not relaxed fit. I was skeptical of Campagnolo's return to the clothing market (I did not love Campagnolo's Heritage line discontinued several years ago), but was really impressed with this jersey. It has become my go-to jersey on hot, sunny training days,
