Castelli Free Full-Zip Short Sleeve Jersey $0.00
Let your soigner stick to making your sandwiches.
It used to be that you'd have to mix-and-match to build a remotely coordinated Castelli kit. Thankfully, this year Castelli has done all the hard work for you, designing their signature Free Full-Zip Jersey around a full collection of perfectly matching bibs, gloves, and cap, so you'll never leave the house looking like you were dressed by your colorblind soigner.
- Castelli's pro-tested Prosecco Strada fabric sets the peloton benchmark for moisture-wicking and breathability
- Inset sleeves keep the jersey snug around your shoulders for that perfect in-saddle fit
- Three generous rear pockets house plenty of room for the essentials
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.

The Free Aero Jersey
This is the full kit, except for the Underarmor baselayer.
A great racing jersey
Castellis are normally a close fit anyway, but be aware that these Free jerseys are even more form-fitting than usual. I have a 35" chest (fully expanded) and the medium left no billowing fabric anywhere and just enough room to breathe without popping the zipper. If you want to become even more aero then this is absolutely the jersey you will want. The graphics are real pro-looking, too. If you've been eating too many cookies, you may want to go with Pearl Izumi if you value your self-esteem.
As some of the other reviewers noted, Castelli uses an anatomical cut shaped for the riding position. So if you wear it standing up, it will pull a little under the arms and across the chest. But in the saddle it will feel like perfection.
Really like this jersey. Have put about 500 miles into it now and it's one of my favorites. It's a great jersey to have out in the sun (well, the white/black version anyway). Keeps me nice and cool. The fabric has a nice soft feel and it is really comfortable. As for sizing, I got the XL and it fits perfect. I'm 6'4" and 185lbs with a 42" chest. I really like the torso area on it since it has a nice slim fit and doesn't get all baggy like a lot of other jerseys do.
Fits small, but once you size up...

I bought this jersey for my dad for the LOTOJA. I had to exchange it for a large, and he almost always wears mediums in bike apparel. Even with the size-up, it's still a super close race fit. He said it felt awkward and not very comfortable when he was off the bike, but once he was in riding position, it fit like a glove. He says he'll never wear anything else for racing.
Looks Great, Fits Small

The black / yellow / fluorescent white variation of this jersey looks great but fits WAAAY too small. I am 5' 7" weighing 170 with a 42" chest and the large was way too tight on me to the point where the zipper unzipped itself on my chest. The shoulders also felt so tight that I had concern for the shirt ripping by moving my arms up and down over time. Material and design look excellent, but you'll definitely want to order a size or two up from your usual fit.

Castelli jerseys don't fit everyone's physique due to their euro-athletic fit, but for me they can't be beat. If you have a belly or a lot of upper body muscle, it's probably not the brand for you. This particular jersey is tighter-fitting than Castelli's typical jerseys - it's "race fit," like a second skin. Super ventilated fabric for a comfy ride on hot days. Sleeves are the perfect length, about mid way between shoulder and elbow, and because there's no super tight elastic band on the cuff the sleeves are comfortable and don't ride up when you're in the drops. Full zip is always appreciated, too. 5'11" 160lbs with a 38.5" chest and the L fits perfectly.
Nice but small
Really nice jersey. Comfortable and light weight. They run REALLY small, especially across the chest. I usually wear a Castelli Large and I required a 2XL for this jersey.
great fitting and very comfortable. Always looks sharp
This jersey is a true "race fit" I am 6'1, 44" chest and 185lbs. I usually wear a XL in Castelli but needed a 2XL in this one, the neck area was tight. The 2XL is loose but not excessively baggy.
The jersey looks great and breathes well.
Looks great but very small
this was a great looking jersey but runs way way small. I am a big guy,6'4" and just have large frame. Its very hard to find large sized jerseys that look great. I ordered a 2xl and it looked like a child size. I sent back for 3x to see if that helps..
Happy with purchase....
Bought this jersey a little while ago and overall happy with product. I'm 6', 185lbs and bought size XL. Glad I did because a large would have been too tight.
