1967 Salvarani Italian Champion Jersey
Another De Marchi exclusive, the 1967 Salvarani Italian Champion Jersey is mean to honor Italy's greatest cyclo-crosser: Renato Longo. A gregario to Gimondi, Motta and Adorni, Longo found his way to the top in cyclocross and won 5 World Championships and 12 National ones in between 1959 and 1972.
A Vittorio Veneto native, Longo has been one of the greatest living ambassador for De Marchi and a true local hero.
This 100% Merino wool replica is still made on those same old-school machines as back in the day in Longo's hometown and features original chainstitch embroidery, three back cargo pockets plus two on the front with real mother-of-pearl buttons.
The Salvarani Italian Champion long sleeve jersey is perfect for Fall and Winter training thanks to Merino’s unique thermal properties with relatively light weight.
Perfect paired to an heritage wool jersey, the Classico Merino Tight has an unrestricted fit and features Endurance retro Chamois by Elastic Interface for De Marchi, a state-of-the-art pad with built-in channel to reduce genital pressure plus high density, ventilated foam and bacteria-static, textured surface for improved hygiene and riding comfort.
