Aero Race 6.0 Jersey
Introducing the most aerodynamic and comfortable race jersey from Castelli; the Men's Aero Race 6.0 Jersey.
When Castelli engineered the first aero jersey for road racing back in 2006, everyone thought they were crazy. Back then, aero was only for TTs. Performance clothing meant moisture management. And you could win the Tour de France with a baggy jersey that was little more than a polyester T-shirt. Even Castelli's aerodynamic consultants expected limited gains, so they named the jersey Split Second, though, like now, they thought even small gains were worth pursuing. In the end, the gains were pretty substantial, and Castelli completely revolutionized the look of the pro peloton.
This season welcomes the sixth major revision of the aero jersey. Each generation has become more aero and better fitting. The Aero Race 6.0 benefits heavily from CFD analysis of wake flow in the riding position for fabric and seam placement. It also benefits from Team Ineos riders' feedback, as Castelli has worked to make the jersey comfortable for their long hours of training and then racing in every possible weather condition.
CFD-based fabric placement and seam construction
Engineered for aero efficiency at 30 to 55 km/h
Airflow shoulder construction
Velocity Rev2 fabric on front and sleeve
3D mesh back for breathability
Elbow-length stretch sleeves with raw-cut edge
YKK® Vislon® zipper
Drop tail allows perfect pocket placement while keeping jersey fitting well at the waist
Performance fit: Castelli apparel are designed with a performance cut that often runs smaller than that of other manufacturers. Consider sizing-up one size to ensure a comfortable fit — e.g., if you typically wear a Medium, select a Large in Castelli.

My favorite jerseys.
I bought one of these on clearance. I liked it well enough that I immediately bought another. I don't really need the aero for what I do, but the fabric is incredibly compliant and comfortable. With the perfect skin contact and the thin fabric, moisture management seems very good. I am not sure how durable they will be but I find myself picking these out of the drawer more often than my other jerseys.
There has been a problem in recent years of how to construct a tight, conforming jersey without wrinkles in the front, while not riding up in the back. I have several jerseys from other companies that don't do this well. Castelli's overhanging pockets solve this very nicely.
