Make a statement.

Inspired by the towering mountain passes and dizzying switchbacks along Switzerland's awe-inspiring Flüela Pass, Castelli's RS Superleggera Jersey was designed as a lightweight, everyday jersey that inherits much of the same technology as Castelli's pro race jerseys. A few functional details added to the Superleggera make it suitable for training, but we can't help but feel that it's a race jersey at heart, ready to propel you up mountain passes and neighborhood climbs not unlike the high-speed car it happens to share a name with.

Castelli strove to make this jersey as light as possible while giving it enough versatility to avoid strictly being classified as a climber's jersey. To do this, Castelli constructed the body and sleeves with 50g/m2 Futura fabric, a barely-there, stretchy synthetic that adeptly draws moisture away from your body as you ride. We were also pleasantly surprised to find that it has a strikingly soft touch. A compression panel of Castelli's Stretch Woven fabric added to the bottom half of the jersey allows the Superleggera to follow your movements in the saddle without constriction. 3-D mesh fabric inserts at the back and side panels further add to the jersey's breathability, facilitating airflow as you tackle steep, slow ascents when the breeze stands still.

In pro race kit, details like a zippered security pocket, top zipper protection, and gripper elastic around the waist aren't essential, but Castelli adds these finishing touches to the Superleggera for comfort and convenience during everyday rides. No-sew seaming on the waist and sleeves creates clean, lie-flat cuffs that won't pinch or chafe, and the joints are bonded and reinforced to ensure they won't unravel after a single wash.

Despite these "training" details, the Superleggera is still a race cut jersey, so expect the same tailored, smaller-than-average fit you would from other Castelli gear. It's also got the Italian firm's signature in-saddle design: a tighter fit across the chest when standing that will feel normal once you're riding. A dropped back hem provides extra coverage and security, and reflective accents add visibility on dim descents and the days you stay out pedaling after sunset.

  • Futura main body fabric with Stretch Woven and 3D mesh
  • 1 zippered, 3 open rear pockets
  • Neck-protecting zipper flap
  • Reflective accents

Fantastic deal on sale.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

This is a superb, very light, amateur race jersey that says "I'm not here to twaddle about". Extra zippered pocket is welcome. Worth the MSRP; a bargain on sale. My most-Type-A riding buddies ask me what it is and where I got it.
As mentioned, _runs small_. Not just Euro-small, but maybe a half-size smaller than that.
Mine fits like a second skin; it's fantastic for long hot days.

Looks great climbing Sa Calobra!

Great jersey for hot weather

  • Fit: Runs small

Best jersey I have. I'll buy more Castelli jerseys.

Best Jersey ever purchased.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

Most comfortable Jersey. The sleeves are paper thin and the material is super soft and doesn't cause any irritation. Fits small so order a size up. I usually go with a Medium and fit into the Large.

Nice materials, too large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

Nice materials, but in the end, it was just way too big for me.

Too large??? Is that a typo? Everyone else found that this jersey definitely ran a size small (me too).

For me at least, the small was very club fit.

Like Butter

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: X-Large

Wanted to thank the other reviewers for their input. In Castelli, I wear L but going off the input went with XL. It was spot on.

Only worn once and this is a great jersey. The length is just right, falls above my waistline. It feels really good against the skin, no hot spots/irritation. I ordered the ruby red and it's beautiful color, I am calling it "testarossa"

Agree, anyone with Med-Large upper arms will have issues with the tight arm bands. It works on me and had just enough give for arm warmers.

Part of Castelli's top-of-the-line Rosso Corsa (race) line. If it fits you right (you gotta be pretty fit)... this is one of the finest cycling jerseys made period.

Made with a lot of attention to detail, this is Assos-caliber sophistication of materials and design. But better looks.

Superlegerra means "superlight" in Italian. So the textile used here in the body is a light, soft, fine lycra. And very breathable. With stealthy black mesh sides.

The "Futura" main-body material may be a little delicate -time will tell. I doubt this will be your workhorse summer jersey. Perhaps reserved for more special rides?

Looks great in every color: All black, Testarossa red, or Bianchi celeste.

Fit: Classic Castelli (Italian) sizing. Size up +1 from your normal street size.

***Caveat: The "no sew" arm band is narrow and does not expand much. It will definitely cause constriction (and sausage arm) on guys who are overweight (sorry). This particular Castelli jersey is definitely best suited for fit riders.

Made in USA

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

It's a beautiful jersey. Super soft material, race cut, very sleek and professional looking.

I normally wear a medium, a large in Castelli, but I might wear an XL in this. No seams on the sleeves which was very cool but the fabric on the ends of the sleeves was tight and giving me sausage arms, so maybe the jersey is more for pure cyclists and not triathletes : ) Returning it but I wanted to highlight a review below that this product is made in the USA, which is very cool.

Runs VERY Small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

This is a nice jersey. Unfortunately, it runs way smaller than even the normal Castelli's. I'm muscular and lean and wear an XL jersey for most brands and a XXL in Castelli. I recently purchased this jersey in a XXL and it was two sizes too small... at least. I couldn't even get my arm through. Very disappointing


  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

This is one of the nicest jerseys that I've ever put my hands on. The fabric's feel is so much softer and smoother than anything else I've tried. Be warned that the fit is very, very race, though.
