As with all of De Marchi's apparel, the Superleggera Men's Short Sleeve Jersey uses 100% Italian materials, along with a fit and graphic treatment inspired by classic team kits. The result is one of the most structured, body supporting jerseys out there. For the construction, De Marchi used a soft, snag resistant, low volume microfiber fabric for its airy composition and low weight. This material breathes better than most nylonLycra blends, and it rapidly transfers moisture away from your skin to its quick drying outer layer. Combined with these lightweight and thermo regulating properties, this fabric also stretches in order to wrap and support your upper body and arm muscles while in the cycling position. By selecting a single fabric for the jersey's entirety, De Marchi was able to create panels that smoothly transition from one to another without any disturbance. The goal of the Superleggera was to create a streamlined jersey with both maximum freedom of movement and the most breathable, lightweight materials available. This anatomical fit was made possible using the company's Contour Fit as a means to stabilize the jersey while in the cycling position. This is accomplished using pre shaped fabric panels that closely follow the body while in motion and subtle arm cuffs that are less bulky than most arm bands. The jersey was finished off with a 34 length front zipper for aerodynamic benefits, three rear panel pockets, and high visibility reflective elements on the rear.
