We always appreciate a brand with an eye for creating clean, simple apparel reminiscent of cycling's past. De Marchi, Italian born and made, demonstrates this aesthetic beautifully. Eschewing bold patterns and flashy graphics, the brand instead pays homage to single stripes, classic colors, and slim silhouettes, all of which can be found on display in the Leggera Cycling Jersey. De Marchi constructs the jersey out of soft, stretchy microfiber that was produced using newer, more eco friendly methods than traditional synthetics, showing the brand isn't against embracing certain modern trends. The lightweight, breathable fabric makes the Leggera ideal for warm spring and summer rides. It's cut in a contoured, body hugging silhouette, which you can anticipate to be more tailored than a club fit jersey without going all the way to an aerodynamic race fit, making it an excellent choice for training kit. Ever mindful of practical details, De Marchi adds a full length zipper, complemented by an inner protective chin flap, as well as three standard rear pockets supported by a stabilizing panel. The bottom hem features a bright reflective strip to help keep you seen by motorists on the days your rides end late, and the entire jersey was treated to earn an SPF rating of 50 to keep you protected during bright days as well.
