Novi Ligure Jersey
The Novi Ligure Jersey from Castelli is based on its Giro 102 Squadra collection and has special graphics to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Fausto Coppi, Il Championissimo. Coppi was born in Castellania which is about 20 kilometers from Novi Ligure, which is where the 11th stage of the 2019 Giro finishes. Fausto won the Giro five times, 1940, 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953 and the Novi Ligure jersey is styled to reflect a similar top he wore during the highlight of his career.
Of course, this jersey is a bit more technical than the wool of Coppi's day and the Novi Ligure uses a combination of fabrics for an optimal fit, comfort, and quick drying. Its main fabric, Velo Light is lightweight and wicks moisture while the perforated side panels promote breathability. Lastly, the sleeve construction has a raw cut finish for comfort and a modern look.

- Q & A
Beautiful Jersey. Runs very small...
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
Very impressed with the construction and colors, but runs considerably smaller than Castelli jerseys I've purchased in the past. It definitely has a snug race type fit. Had to return it to try an XL. That's a tough one to accept... I'm 5'10" and 177 lbs.
