Capo originally designed this Gelato SL Short Sleeve Jersey for Capo employees and friends lined up for Levi's Gran Fondo, a local event. It is a super-light top, designed for hot summer riding, or, in the case of the GF, lots and lots of slow climbing where it's easy to overheat.
The body, the front and rear and side panels, are made of ultra-light mesh Leggero micro fiber. 120g per square meter. The shoulders have the Speed ribbed weave, a form-fitting aero fabric, but thinner, for greater moisture transpiration. The sleeves feature Luminescence cuffs for reflectivity and safety. And under the arms is a fine mesh for even more sweat evacuation. The collar is made of the Leggero fabric as the body. It's shorter and flatter than a typical collar, better for keeping zipped in hot weather.
As is de rigueur for Capo, the jersey deploys a 6mm lockable hidden zipper for ease of wearing as well as thermostat control. The three rear pockets have the right and left sides slightly canted for better access. And next to the pockets are reflective tabs for better low-light identification. The waist hem has a silicone gripper all the way around to firmly attach the jersey to your shorts.
Bright colors are a see and be seen thing. They're great for making sure you're visible to other road users. The Gelato is fun and fast and riding away soon.
