Crafted in Italy from 100% Superfine merino wool on 7-gauge, old-school looms, the Criterium Track Jacket has been in production here at De Marchi since day one. Back in the day it was the only conceivable lifestyle piece and it was worn on any pre and after race situation. Originally only available to pro teams for budget reasons, eventually it became a standard also through amateurs.
Slightly more comfortable than the original to comfortably accommodate either a jersey or short underneath, the Criterium is thick and warm and features the hallmark Emilio De Marchi chain-stitched signature on the chest, striped ribbed hem, collar and cuffs, a fully-divisible, 2-way, brushed brass zipper and a commemorative woven label.
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.
