An industry-first when originally introduced by De Marchi in 1993, the “Wind-Jersey” has since undergone several iterations and it’s now been perfected for 2021 thanks to super-stretch Italian 3-ply laminate fabric that provides total wind-proofing and water resistance as opposed to partial as per the previous versions. Plus it features a built-in base-layer functionality thanks to 100% Superfine Merino Wool next to the skin that allows for extra breathability. The outer layer is now made of entirely recycled nylon 6/6 that is finely woven for maximum freedom of movement.
Recommended for use in Spring and Autumn with temperatures ranging from approximately 8 to 16°C (46-60°F), when used alone, the Cortina is also perfect over a further fine Merino base to extend its range of closer to freezing point, although subject to personal taste. Sporting and higher stand, jacket-like doubled collar and insulated sleeves, the Cortina also features a fully-divisible, reverse coil camlock zipper with inner windproof flap, oversized double reflective stripes on the sides that extend to both front and back of the jersey to provide virtual 360° visibility and four back pockets of which one is zippered and insulated.
Intensively tested by championship athletes, the new Perfecto Plus is our most comfortable short ever. A heavy-duty, all-day performance Premium Bib, Perfecto Plus is designed for the road. Our proprietary Perfecto contoured patterning plus 4 different fabrics provide selective compression on key muscle groups involved in the pedaling movement.
Designed specifically for our Perfecto bib, the proprietary CRM-PLUS Chamois is made by Elastic Interface
exclusively for De Marchi and allows longer time on the saddle thanks to a true anatomic ''half-moon'' shape, innovative floating construction technology, exclusive open-cell super high-density Swiss foams and a center channel that effectively relieves pressure from arteries to support the prostate.
A super-lightweight woven mesh back panel offers maximum stability and superior moisture-transfer while oversized 3M reflective gripper elastics ensure 360-degrees visibility while gently preventing legs from riding up.
Entirely made in Italy from Italian and Swiss materials in limited quantities, Perfecto Plus is not industrially-made but rather an almost entirely hand-made sartorial short.
