To some, a jersey is just the start to their winter layering process. But to a Master, the right jersey is all that's needed. Fittingly, the name of the Capo Padrone Long Sleeve Jersey not only speaks to its abilities but it performs them diligently, as well. Suit up in the Padrone and stay warm.
Capo's Padrone jersey falls under what it calls its Gruppo Sportivo, or GS Series. Designed to 'push-the-envelope' of cycling apparel, the GS series receives Capo's most advanced materials and construction techniques. Basically, it checks all of the boxes on your wishlist -- compression, comfort, support, flexibility, and warmth. So, toeing this line, the Padrone was constructed from a blend of Capo's fabrics -- Super Roubaix Carbon and Sky Microfiber. Working together, these materials strike the ideal balance between insulation and breathability. The fabrics effectively regulate the internal temperature of the jersey by releasing excess heat between the material and the skin. This is possible because the high internal loft of the fabrics pull sweat away from the skin, while the dual-layer micro knit of the Microfiber is constantly breathing.
Not satisfied with simply keeping you warm, Capo designed the Padrone to be highly malleable in order to complement the cycling-specific flexibility of the GS series. Capo made the Padrone with a lengthened rear hem, a multiple panel construction, and pre-shaped sleeves. The idea was to complement the body in motion, and by doing so, reduce the possibility of abrasion along the way. Even further along these lines, Capo incorporated Super Roubaix Carbon lateral stretch panels. This microfiber has a four-way stretch construction with elements of carbon fiber within the composition. This gives the material a natural anti-microbial characteristic that will fight off odor-creating bacteria.
The Capo Padrone Long Sleeve Jersey is available in the colors Black and White and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. Every jersey is made in Italy.
Capo makes great products. This is a great long sleeve jersey for early fall or early spring. Not as technical as the short sleeve in terms of materials, but it doesn't need to be and costs less. Great Capo fit and the same great quality
