Centuries of inspiration.

Sharing a name with a classically romantic Italian city in Lombardia, the Nalini Mantova Jersey admirably lives up to its namesake region's race both in form and function. Employing a more minimal aesthetic than the early settlers of Mantova — or Mantua as we refer to it in English — Nalini designed the Mantova to be a soft, stretchy, everyday training jersey for recreational cyclists.

Like the centuries-old palaces that ring the shores of Mantova's Lago Superiore and Lago Inferiore, Nalini's Mantova Jersey was made to have staying power; the Moa Mantodry treatment that the Hot Moa Light fabric receives helps it wick moisture away from your skin faster than it would be able to on its own, and Nalini gives the jersey a close, contoured fit that will hold its shape throughout hours-long training rides. Added features like a silicone elastic waistband and a well-placed chin guard at the top of the zipper help improve ride quality, while 3 standard rear pockets give you room to take plenty of essentials along with you.

High quality and race fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Lots of folks say this jersey runs small and that may be the case for riders who want a relaxed "club" fit. The medium jersey I ordered fit like my other race fit jerseys and that was my expectation.

Pros: Looks awesome. Fits like a glove for race day, Classic rear pocket buttons for those looking for a vintage look.

Cons: Fabric may be a little hot for +90 degree days.


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

I'm 5'6", 172 lbs and large chest and arms. Ordered a large and its extremely small on me. Nice color and material but sending back.

Ultra small

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

I have a 41 or 42in chest and a 36in waist. According to the size chart I should be an XL. I could barely get this on. My skinny cycling arms barely fit through the sleeves, the waist was 2 or 3 inches small. The chest was ok, but still tight. Size up at least one size for these jerseys.

The look and fabric is great though.

Nice material

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

Really like the materiel of this Jersey. However, I order a Medium and it's really small so I will have to return it.
