Castelli Superleggera Short Sleeve review

The Superleggera is easily the lightest jersey on test (85g in the Large tested) - a third of the weight of some jerseys. As such, the fabric is superthin and great to wear on a hot summer's day.

The Superleggera is an extremely light jersey (85g in the Large tested) – a third of the weight of some other jerseys.

As such, the fabric is superthin and great to wear on a hot summer’s day. Although it’s not see-through, it’s a real body hugger and shows the outline of your bib shorts – and hairy chest if you have one! The 30cm front zip and thin strips of stretchy mesh allow good airflow. There are three narrow but stretchy pockets. We were careful and the material didn’t suffer any snags – but keep a close eye on wayward Velcro.
