Specially engineered polyester microfiber, what Castelli calls Prosecco, encourages cooling air to flow throughout the Short Sleeve Fortuna Jersey. Prosecco consists of two fabrics with distinct properties.
Woven together, this combination creates micro holes that permit excellent air circulation and helps to maintain proper body temperature. Add to the picture wicking properties that quickly evaporate perspiration with strategic mesh panels, and Castelli can confidently claim you'll be content in the Fortuna Jersey ranging from the low 60s (Fahrenheit) into triple-digit territory. This is just what you'll expect when an early-morning, summer ride starts near sea level and crests mountain tops by the afternoon.
But fabric technology can only provide so much comfort, as a large proportion of that is from a manufacturer's attention to fit and panel shape. The Fortuna features seams and panels that are designed to hug your body without restricting movement. This is not only for aerodynamic purposes, but it allows Castelli's Prosecco to work at its optimum, too.
The Fortuna has a drop-tail hem for additional coverage, and three rear pockets hold essentials for a day on two wheels. An invisible, 3/4-length zipper keeps the Fortuna's lines clean and makes donning easy, while reflective elements help provide safety when light is low.
The Castelli Fortuna Jersey - Short Sleeve - Women's comes in sizes X-Small through X-Large and in the colors White/black, Fucsia/black/white, and Drive Blue/white/black.
