Some of the most classically beautiful cycling in Italy is to be enjoyed in Tuscany. It has it all – from challenging climbs around Monte Almiati, the region’s highest peak, to the more sedate, picturesque routes into iconic Siena. Here you can enjoy a well-deserved espresso or something a little stronger in one of the city’s many stylish Piazzas. Being in Italy, you will want to look the part. The latest version of our Classic Short Sleeve Merino Jersey – now updated in a beautiful new aubergine (or melanzana) palette – is just the ticket.
Luxuriously soft to pull on, the jersey will keep you cool, dry and comfortable in the summer heat. The MERINO + CARBON fabric offers great body temperature regulation and moisture management. Thanks to its natural wicking capabilities, the Merino blend dissipates any moisture from your skin to the outer layer of the fabric, keeping you incredibly dry. This luxurious blend of fabrics also boasts 10 times faster wicking than normal Merino wool – and also dries twice as fast.
The Classic Jersey has been re-styled to offer three rear stuff pockets to keep your accessories perfectly stowed, whilst a zipped security pocket keeps essential items secure, should you need it. Weighing in at just 191g, this is a serious piece of kit for some seriously stylish riding.
Elliot, head of product development, says: “The development process at ashmei is a constant ambition to design the best product on the market. I believe that the step changes in the Classic Jersey demonstrate this – everything on the jersey has been tweaked to improve the performance of our classic pieces.”
