Castelli Potenza FZ Cycling Jersey
This jersey opens up an entirely new category of cool-weather clothing. The windproof fabrics are amazing at keeping the cold out, but even with the best of them, you get wet inside with the intensity picks up. Castelli set out to make a jersey that's significantly warmer than your tradition thermal jersey but that can maintain some airflow to prevent perspiration buildup on the inside.
 
The fabric does the magic here. The dense knit structure keeps a lot of the wind off, which together with the luxuriously thick fleece keeps you warm to to around 10 degrees celsius/50 degrees fahrenheit. The fabric is light and extremely stretchy, so you don't feel weight down like you do with a traditional jacket.
 
Features:
  • Polartec® Power Stretch fleece fabric with Hard Face DWR finish
  • Exceptionally warm fleece
  • Just the right amount of air-permeability to keep you comfortable in cool conditions
  • 3 rear pockets plus zippered key pocket
  • Chest pocket with jacquard Rosso Corsa logo
  • Full-length YKK® Vislon zipper
  • Bonded flat waistband with 360° reflective piping
  • CrossWrap wrist closures
  • Temperature Range: +10° - +17°C
J'ai pris comme toujours une taille L , je mesure 174 cm pour 69 kg et la taille me vas parfaitement.
As with most Castelli gear I have owned, this does what it says: it keeps you warm, holds its shape. That's about it. It is a snug fit, so as always with Castelli, it probably pays to go up a size from normal. My only gripe is that it is not as wind-proof as I was hoping, but I resolved that with a gilet over the top.
Nice piece of clothing between a thicker jacket and a lighter short sleeve jersey, comfortable to wear.
Had read some reports on this so thought I'd try one at recent sale price. Intrinsically "just" a fleece but the material is able to regulate temperature really well. Worn a few times now and very impressed. I'm normally a medium in Castelli tops so went medium for this as well. Certainly sizes up a bit larger than other Castelli tops so a more relaxed fit but still good to wear. Very snug, thicker than regular thermal jerseys but I can still get rain shells over the top if needed. This has a DWR finish though which surprisingly copes weill with mist and light showers. Fairly wind resistant too. Recommended.
Perfect for Spring/Autumn rides 8c and up. Zip on the front great for phone/cards. If you want a jacket for winter rides get the Castelli Alpha Jacket or Jersey. Worth every penny.
