Castelli creates the Bologna Jersey in recognition of the city that gets the 2019 Giro kicked off and hosts its first stage, an individual time trial. This jersey features special graphics that signify the city of Bologna and Emilia-Romagna, a region in northern Italy known for its medieval cities, rich food culture, art, and seaside resorts. It's also worth noting that the Bologna jersey was created with the aim of supporting Save the Children, an organization designed to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.
The Bologna Jersey uses a combination of fabrics for an optimal fit, comfort, and quick drying. Its main fabric, Velo Light is lightweight and wicks moisture while the perforated side panels promote breathability. A mesh silicone waistband keeps the fit in check, while 3 rear pockets, with Castelli’s drop pocket design haul ride snacks and any other essentials. Lastly, the sleeve construction has a raw cut finish for comfort and a modern look.
