De Marchi, who has been in the Italian cycling world since 1946, is especially famous for its collection named Heritage and is one of the few remaining companies which still insist on manufacturing in Italy. The brand’s technical fabrics are quite successful and products on offer are pretty stylish.
De Marchi Leggera is surely for the riders who like the jerseys which are pretty tight and behave like a second skin. Since it’s made of lightweight polyester, breathing ability is good enough to make it your favourite jersey during the hot season. There are three plus one pockets on the back with reflective details and they’re deep.
De Marchi has recently started to adapt itself into the modern clothing approaches and now they’re manufacturing simple and useful products for cycling. We believe that combining Italian high qualified fabric with the current trends of cycling world will shortly move the brand to the top of the best cycling jerseys list. The fit and fabric are simply great. The stretchy structure of the jersey makes it comfortable.
The locking front zipper has an internal chin flap to prevent discomfort. The dropped rear hem and has a gel strip to keep it from riding up and it’s the same for arms. All these features show us the reason why De Marchi Leggera Jersey is located by the brand under the line named Innovation which refers to high performance cycling jerseys.
Leggera seems a wise option for summer riding with its two colour alternatives and six different sizes. Those lighter colour options make the jersey much more desirable for weekend rides when the weather is annoyingly hot. If you have any about the size, you better check their size chart but we guess that you can go for the same sizes of your Rapha and Santini jerseys. If you really like the extreme tight fit, then you should go for one size smaller than your ordinary size.
