Better than Rapha and at 1/4 the price.

I've been a fan of Castelli jerseys for over 13 years. My first jerseys are still on my weekly rotation, tho the zippers are not better for the wear (my fault, I gave it to a laundromat and they washed and dried on high heat and melted the zippers), and the stuff just rocks. Sizing is set up for a cyclist, not a cyclist at 20%+ body fat so plan accordingly. I normally wear between L and XL (and yeah I do in fact tip that 20% mark from time-to-time) and my latest GPM I did go XXl. I like the additional room, it is longer in the torso and a bit roomier in the chest. Its better for longer days when you gotta stuff the rear pockets full or food, tools and extra clothing.

The GPM is a perfect summer jersey for those high heat, intense sun days. Full zips rule third earth and lighter colors do seem to help with the heat.

Good stuff. Buy a few. And then go ride your bike.

Oh yeah. I'm 6'4 195lbs 44inch chest. And have a big american penis.
