Initially designed for lightness for an advantage on those long alpine climbs the Castelli Climbers (2.0) Jersey also needed to be suitable for hot long days in and out of the mountains. Using a combination of exclusive mesh fabrics achieved both results. But by using the patterning from the Aero 5.1 Jersey it also makes this a pretty quick jersey, not quite our quickest (that is the 5.2) but quicker than nearly anything else out there.
The Climbers 2.0 Jersey also holds virtually no moisture and dries very quickly making it ideal for under the Gabba or used alone on warm wet rides. that characteristic also means you don't need a base layer with it, as it wicks and dries so effectively.
All good stuff but please note it is virtually see-through, it is also a very snug race fit, think of this as a speciality piece for when weight and speed are a priority and the temperatures are hot... it's not something you want to wear on a Cafe club run in early May especially if you haven't got the climber's body to match the jerseys name.
