In a marked departure from its classic red and black color palette, Castelli partnered with Colorado based Rodeo Adventure Labs to create the Rodeo Jersey. Its streamlined construction has racing in mind, and the eye catching graphics pay homage to the Colorado landscape ranging from desert, to prairie, to the beckoning climbs of the Rockies beloved by the jersey's designer and the team it was created for. For the jersey's main body, Castelli starts with its dimpled Velocity fabric, crafted with tightly woven fibers that actively guide air over your shoulders as you're stretched out in your drops during the heady moments of a final sprint. According to Castelli, wind tunnel testing demonstrates that the fabric saves 12 watts at 40kmh compared to a standard race fit jersey, allowing you to expend less energy over the course of a race without sacrificing speed. To Castelli, race fit translates into jerseys that not only possess a second skin fit, but will feel slightly short and tight across the chest and shoulders while standing.

Castelli also adds mesh raw edge arm grippers, somewhat of a no brainer design now that they've been perfected. Raw edges reduce the likelihood of chafing or irritation and create less drag over the miles with their lie flat profile.

The standard complement of three rear pockets is supplemented with an additional, zippered pocket to securely house absolute essentials you can'...
