The Castelli Giro d’Italia Mortirolo Jersey marks the fact that this year the notorious Passo del Mortirolo is back on the Giro itinerary, something we couldn’t be happier about – though we suspect the pros might not share our enthusiasm! The ascent is, after all, renowned as one of the most awesome challenges that may be tackled along La Corsa Rosa, one that strikes fear into the hearts of the most capable climbers.
Looking at the Giro d’Italia Mortirolo Jersey probably won’t make them feel any better, as it depicts Stage 16, which runs from Salò to Aprica, in all its mountainous glory – both in terms of its steep profile and its 200km scale.
Made from 100% recycled Sitip yarns, it is designed to blend comfort with performance. Its main body is made from Velo Light fabric, which offers exceptional stretch and the wicking abilities needed to tackle such a relentless climb, while the sleeves are constructed from a highly breathable 3D mesh that is both form-fitting and breathable.
Cut to hug your figure while accommodating a variety of shapes and allowing room for a cake stop, the jersey closes with an easy-to-pull YKK® Vislon® zipper, while silicone gripper elastic at the waist holds it in place as you cycle.
It’s a sleek, comfortable and environmentally friendly tribute to an epic GC battleground that has had Grand Tour entrants shaking in their road shoes since 1990.
