De Marchi's approach with its CL Jersey was to create a lightweight, anatomic, and quick-drying women's jersey that would be ideal for both racing and training. With the focus on these key characteristics, De Marchi selected a single, highly technical fabric, and developed a smooth-paneled jersey that not only looks clean and clutter-free, but also delivers the results it was after.
For the construction of the CL, De Marchi used its Dry3 Pro fabric for its airy composition and low weight. This material breathes better than most nylon/Lycra blends, and it rapidly transfers moisture away from your skin to its quick-drying outer-layer. Combined with these lightweight and thermo-regulating properties, Dry3 Pro also stretches in order to wrap and support your upper body and arm muscles while in the cycling position. By selecting a single fabric for the jersey's entirety, De Marchi was able to create panels that smoothly transition from one to another without any disturbance. This means that the jersey's seams all but disappear, which leads to better aerodynamics than other jerseys relying on several mixed fabric panels.
De Marchi focused equally on implementing its lightweight technical Dry3 Pro fabric into the CL as it did to refining the jersey's fit. The goal of the new CL was to create a streamlined jersey with both a maximum freedom of movement and one of the most breathable, lightweight materials available. As a result, the jersey features a contoured cut. This contoured fit was made possible using the company's Body Framing Lite Technology as a means to stabilize the jersey while in the cycling position. This is accomplished using the aforementioned pre-shaped fabric panels that closely follow the body while in motion. When sewn together, these panels form somewhat of a three dimensional shape on their own, mimicking the body before even reaching your shoulders. The result is a jersey that eliminates all unnecessary material, leading to the best fit possible.
Equally valued by De Marchi are its finishing details. The CL Jersey is no exception, with its thin half-length front zipper, two rear panel pockets, and oversized, high-visibility reflective stripes. A small, square De Marchi logo tastefully adorns the back of the jersey's neck.
The De Marchi CL Jersey is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Blue, Neon, and Red.
