De Marchi Contour Evolution Jersey

BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Good shape and hot weather performance with a soft touch"

Tuesday, June 17, 2008 5.00pm By

Like Assos, De Marchi has used a backbone to reinforce the shape at the rear. This holds the jersey’s shape when you’re in the saddle and prevents the pockets from sagging when weighted down. It’s a neat feature that works, although the thicker back panels impede wicking a little. 

The Dry 3 Next fabric has a good degree of stretch to it and has a soft, silky touch. The fibres are hollow to improve moisture transfer and even with those thicker back panels this is a good hot weather jersey, with anti-bacterial underarm patches to help reduce any odour and lengthen time between washes. 

Silicone grippers do a good job of keeping the back in place. 

The high-end price puts it up there with Assos, but it doesn’t quite have the same lust factor.
