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.
Perfecto Strada Bib Short
Now made using mid weight recycled nylon fabric for exceptional performance and durability whilst reducing environmental impact, the new Perfecto Strada Bib Short still features selective muscle compression and has streamlined build in order to reduce fabric waste.
Made for getting more miles, our Perfecto Strada is an all-day performance short and a perfect match to our Strada jersey. Based on our original Perfecto Bib, the Strada variant is a specific road short proven to increase your time on the saddle and delay fatigue by improving blood flow and providing superior comfort thanks to a proprietary Elastic Interface half-moon shaped and super high density chamois. Oversized 360°-visible, reflective elastic bands features inner gel strips to keep the short securely in place without constriction. The Perfect Strada Bib Short is a staple of any serious road cyclist wardrobe.
While remaining true to size, our Strada range has a closer fit so if you’re unsure on the size, please refer to our updated size guide.
