Looking for that new jersey to match with any bib then check out the latest editions of the Castelli Prologo.  One of the mainstay garments from the legendary Italian manufacturer that has been cutting cloth for cyclists since 1876 the Prologo is simple in appearance but loaded in features.

Firstly these days you can't go past a little safety and the Prologo hits it off with dual reflective "flags" sewn into the side seams for that early morning or evening rides.  Nick work there.

The fit is just what you would expect from the Italians, fitted, but not too extreme, I thought the achievement of snug fitting "X-SPAND Stretch cuffs" i.e. non elasticized arm cuffs was one of the best enhancements that has come through since the Cervelo Test Team collaboration.

Made from Castelli's own Stratus fabric and subjected with their "Prosecco" (dry) treatment to improve moisture management to a warp speed factor this jersey was bone dry at the end of my first 4 hr ride in it and weighed less than my Powerbar!

Centre rear is a double layered mesh insert that not only improves breathability but also enhances the fit with a four way stretch dimension.  Finished off with a 35cm hidden zipper and three pockets the Prologo will become a mainstay of your kit.
