Accept the advantage.
When you're looking race day in the eye, you'll be happy to take any advantage that can give you a little free-speed, and Castelli's designers know this well. That's why they crafted the Aero Race Full-Zip Women's Jersey alongside the 5.1 Men's version — offering aerodynamic advantages that push you ahead of the competition as you strive for your spot on the podium. Finding the perfect combination of fit and fabrics, this jersey boasts its heritage in racing, without forgetting to keep some comfort in the mix for your longest races and training days.
Across the front, Castelli uses stretchy, lightweight, and breathable Velocity Dry fabric, which sits comfortably against the skin to whisk moisture away with fast-drying efficiency. This fabric also utilizes a tightly knit weave to manage laminar airflow over the body for watt-saving aerodynamics, which will, in theory, translate to less fatigue and more speed out on the road.
The back and sleeves are made of 3D mesh, which is lightweight and dimple-textured. This increases the fibers' effective surface area without adding mass, allowing for increased wicking and an even faster evaporation. While we wouldn't wear it alone in the depths of winter, this does make the Aero Race Jersey appropriate for cool-weather applications as a drier jersey makes for a warmer cyclist.
