Castelli Body Paint Full-Zip Jersey - Short-Sleeve - Men's $0.00
So tight, we recommend waxing your back for the maximally aero fit.
There are jerseys that feature a 'slim fit,' others that are 'team fit' or 'pro fit.' And then, there's the Castelli Men's Body Paint Full-Zip Jersey. Constructed from a single piece (yes a single piece) of Power Stretch Lycra fabric, the Body Paint jersey hugs every contour of your ripped torso for the ultimate aero fit. The one-piece construction also offers superior comfort, eliminating any seams that can cause annoying chafing.
- Giro++ soft grippers on the hem and cuffs hold the jersey in place (as if it needed any help) without extra elastic or siliconeFull-length zipper in the front goes two ways for ventilation flexibility
- Three rear pockets stash your energy bars or cell phone
Note: Castelli has a "Euro" slimmer fit. We suggest ordering at least one size larger than your normal US size.
- How to Measure:
- For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
- Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
- Natural Waist:
- Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
- Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
What community has to say
Ultra tight, but super slippery in wind
As reviewed elsewhere, order one size larger than you normally would. The body paint jersey litterly makes me feel like i am going faster - can't say i litterally am, but it does feel that way. This is a full on race jersey, if you are going for a longer ride at non-race speeds, get a different jersey. This one is snug to the point of being uncomfortable to sit at a cafe and you would look pretty silly wearing it on a sundy ride in the park...unless you happen to be racing in the park. If you are truly interested in speed and/or are racing, this is the perfect jersey.
Nice jersey. Terrific construction. Aero and form-fitting w/o being restrictive. Would have kept it if it didn't have grippers in the arm. When putting the jersey on they clamp down in awkward places and just make for a weird feeling on the arms. When Castelli does away with those, this jersey will be the ultimate. Went for the Castelli Aero Race
Really wanted to like this jersey but was dissapointed with the construction on the two I tried.
The black jersey has a red stripe across the chest, and the stripe did not matche up on both sides of chest. On one jersey one-half of stripe was about an inch lower on one side, and on other jersey one-half of stripe was narrower and different shape. This is not good for a high-priced top of the line Castelli made in Italy.
Aside from the construction defect the jersey is an amazing piece of equipment. Used it once in 70 degee cool weather (not a hot weather jersey) and was very satisfied. Now if only Castelli would pay a little more attention to their quality control the jersey would be perfect.
Oh, and a note regardinig sizing. Jersey is super tight and I had to go XL instead of usual Castelli L size.
I HAVE A 40 " CHEST. WILL I HAVE TO TAKE...
I HAVE A 40 " CHEST. WILL I HAVE TO TAKE THE NEXT SIZE?
It's light and my sweat doesn't soak it. The back pockets are deeper than expected. Very satisfied customer.
