Ready for all three.
Engineered to provide cross functionality for each leg of your race, the Castelli Body Paint Tri Sleeveless Jersey is fast drying, highly elastic, and soft against the skin. This is due primarily to its microfiber, Body Paint tri fabric, but its one-piece design contributes significantly as well.
The one-piece construction eliminates seams for less chafing in areas prone to rash. Additionally, Castelli incorporated a seamless design decreases both the jersey's aerodynamic and hydrodynamic profiles. Meanwhile, especially important for coming out of T1, Body Paint's microfiber content makes this jersey extremely fast drying. But, before you even get out of the water, you'll find that the jersey's 3mm layer of soft foam provides positive flotation for swimming.
And once you head into the run, Body Paint's infused titanium-dioxide fibers (the active element in sunscreen) reflects the sun's rays while maintaining a consistently lower temperature at the jersey's surface. For nutrition storage, Castelli has included two pockets. However, with drag reduction at the forefront of the design, Castelli placed flaps over the openings. Essentially, this prevents the pockets from filling with water and air counter to your direction of movement, effectively minimizing your drag profile.
The Castelli Body Paint Tri Sleeveless Jersey is available in the color Black and in seven sizes from Small to XXX-Large.

Castelli body paint tri top
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
Very poor quality. Not like the other Castelli apparel I own. It has a full length zipper but the zipper will not release at the bottom so it might as well be a 3/4 length. The bottom hem curls up and will not stay flat against the shorts. It lacks the hooks to match my Castelli tri shorts (which I love). This would solve the rolling up problem in the back but the front would still roll up. It does not have the 3 mm of foam listed in the description. I purchased an XXL based on my 43 in chest but it is too big creating drag in the swim. I will not buy another one.
