Castelli Gisele Cycling Sleeveless Women's Jersey $79.95
Stay breezy on your bike.
Some weather is just too hot for even the most lightweight of short sleeve jerseys. Besides that, those mid-bicep tan lines tend to draw some curious-looking stares when you're cruising around town in your tank tops. For these warm riding occasions, Castelli decided to take its popular Gisele Jersey, remove the sleeves, modify the neck opening, and voila, the Gisele Sleeveless Women's Jersey was born.
Castelli constructed the Gisele sleeveless jersey using its smooth and stretchy Softlex fabric. This material provides both the look and feel of soft cotton, yet it features an outstanding level of breathability. In fact, Softlex was chosen for the majority of Castelli's women's jerseys this year, as it's favored over other fabrics for its incredible feel against the skin and efficient moisture wicking capabilities.
Furthering these characteristics, Softlex is also exceptionally stretchy. You'll find that the jersey's natural elasticity provides a complete freedom of movement through its classic fit. And in terms of fit, Castelli created the Gisele on an anatomic curve that not only takes the female body into account, but also the female body while in the cycling position. This results in the jersey following your movements in the saddle, while at the same time minimizing abrasion.
To store all of your riding essentials, Castelli included three ample rear pockets. And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, the jersey features reflective accents throughout. Smooth elastic trim surrounds the jersey's neck and arm openings, with similar treatment added to the hem. This not only adds to the figure flattering fit, but also keeps the jersey comfortably in place.
The Castelli Gisele Sleeveless Women's Jersey is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Cyclamen/white/blue navy/wisteria, White/yellow fluo/pink fluo/ocean, and Wisteria/coral/white/anthracite.

Wore it all Summer!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a great tank, and that seems to be hard to find when you want adequate rear pockets and straps that cover your sports bra. I love the Perla Bravette top, but if you wear a racer back bra, it completely ruins the well designed look of the top. So I went with the Giselle instead. I'm a big fan of Softlex as it's breathable and comfortable and find that the back pockets stay in place. It's not my favorite design of my Castelli tops (it's a little retro for my taste) but the Cyclamen color is pretty and I wore it all Summer. If they had more color selections I liked, I would have grabbed another.
