Like many of our products, the FORBICI was designed with a clear purpose, and that was to make a lightweight summer jersey – something for those swelteringly hot days. The fabric is inspired by the original Climber’s Jersey; our 1.81 Base Layer uses this fabric, but in order to build a whole jersey we have chosen a slightly heavier version (145g/m vs. 75g/m). The fabric is made mainly with bulked continuous filament (BCF) polyester yarns, giving it a soft hand and excellent wicking.
When it came to naming this piece, we harked back to the old days when we raced in short zip heavy jerseys in ALL seasons, and for the scorcher days we would bring out the scissors and cut the sleeves and hack holes in an attempt to increase airflow. The SCISSOR Jersey isn’t a very good name, but translate it into Italian and it’s perfect. The FORBICI Jersey is our modern solution to an age-old problem – and you won’t need the scissors anymore.
- High wicking polyester mesh jersey
- Designed for the hottest days, no scissors required
- Full-length YKK zipper for additional ventilation
- 3 open rear pockets for storage - angled for easier access
- 4th hidden zipper pocket for keys and cash
- Reflective piping on rear hem.
In 2015, the Chpt3 project provided the newly-retired David Millar, and designer Richard Pearce, with the opportunity to work alongside long-time sponsors to create something truly different and exclusive. A collaboration with Castelli launched the brand; a collection of lovingly designed cycling garments that fuse the latest material technology with a sartorial elegance opposed to the billboard stylings of the peloton. The result is the ultimate in both performance cyclewear and coffee-stop chic. Read more about CHPT3.
