That really annoying "jacket on, jacket off" weather is fast approaching. You shiver at the coffee shop before the ride, then the moment you start the local climb, your skin gets sweaty. Sweaty gives way to more shivers when you stop for a mid-ride snack. You need the Castelli Velocissimo Team Jersey FZ, a mid-weight, long sleeve jersey that keeps your core temperature consistent.
The Velocissimo FZ was constructed from Castelli's Warmer material on the body. This breathable mid-weight fabric features a soft fleece inside which, in addition to being comfortable against the skin, keeps your core dry. Warmer's inherent wicking properties spread perspiration quickly and evenly for efficient evaporation. A dry core in cool weather is a key to keeping warm.
Enabling the fabric's technical properties, is a form-fit that is the product of a century of custom-tailoring. Castelli knows a thing or two about fit, in fact it invented the first lycra riding shorts. An example of Castelli's innovation, used in the Velocissimo Jersey, is the sleeves -- they were articulated forward. This allows for maximum contact between the skin and the jersey, which enhances Warmer's insulating properties. It also eliminates excess material around elbows and shoulders while in riding position. Continuing its commitment to cycling-specific fit, Castelli used Warmer X-Stretch fabric on the sleeves to allow an even closer fit, which you'll appreciate if the wind starts to blow.
Castelli used a camlock zipper which allows you to adjust the amount of ventilation from the front -- it won't slip when riding. The high collar keeps the chill out. The Jersey's lower hem has a wide silicone gripper to prevent riding up, and the three rear pockets are extra deep and easy to reach when riding. Reflective tabs have been added for low-light visibility.
The Castelli Velocissimo Team Jersey FZ is available in two colors: Navy/white and Black/Yellow Fluo and in sizes Small through XXX-Large.
