Our lightest jersey ever, weighting less than 100 g in size M, the new Superleggera bridges performance and tradition as it’s cut from an incredibly light (60 g/m2) blend of natural silk and recycled nylon to create a new conception in super lightweight tops thanks to stretch-woven fabric technology.
Designed for maximum performance, the Superleggera is a race-ready, road jersey with subtle tonal branding and is available in natural silk off-white or black.
Fully loaded with features it is incredible versatile as it can be worn in a variety of weather conditions and temperatures. Designed for hot weather, Powersilk is also incredibly breathable but lightly wind resistant at same time allowing for a multi season use.
Streamlined construction and superlight fabric allow for incredible aerodynamic performance and greater comfort than any other jersey we ever created.
We could easily have gone even lighter in weight by opting for a lighter weight zipper but the use of a Vislon plastic one makes unzipping a breeze and improves the overall product experience.
An integral, laser cut and seamless gripping panel in the back holds the jersey in its place while the classic 3 cargo pockets layout has improved with the addition of a fourth zippered side pocket which is ideal for storing essentials.
Superleggera fits very tight: one size up is recommended.
The use of natural silk may result in slight fabric fading and/or unevenness on the main body and/or on the edges. This should not be considered a fault but part of the nature of the garment.
To celebrate De Marchi’s 75th Anniversary we started a new fabric development that bridges tradition with high performances and created a new paradigm in cycling shorts. For the first time ever, thanks to woven technology De Marchi has blended natural silk with recycled elastic fiber for incredible compression with nearly half the weight compared to regular cycling shorts. Powersilk is not only lighter than regular shorts’ fabrics but also more breathable, wind-resistant and anti-wrinkle. Plus, the mix of recycled nylon and natural silk allows for a sustainable production chain that drastically reduces environmental impact and waste. Newly-conceived integrated leg grippers are laser cut and seamless at the bottom for optimal compression and incredible comfort. Another exclusive innovation is our latest race-ready Elastic Interface HCS chamois pad that provides cushioning never seen before thanks to hybrid cell elastomeric cushioning elements which will make you feel like suspended in air. Possibly, the most comfortable chamois pad ever created. Anatomically shaped for road racing, the HCS chamois is also an average 20% lighter than the one featured in our previous Perfecto Leggero Bib whilst delivering approximately the double in cushioning power! A remarkable result obtained thanks to obsessive in-house research & development. Naturally bacteria-static, the new HCS chamois is also hypoallergenic and anti-odor. The new Superleggero Bib is our lightest-ever short therefore is born to perform in hot and humid weather but it also work great with normal temperatures in transitional seasons.
The Superleggero short is part of the Superleggera series, which also includes the Superleggera Powersilk Jersey
and the Superleggera Sleeveless Base Layer
