The Spring-Summer Jersey Guide

Edited by De Marchi

De Marchi jerseys have witnessed the greatest accomplishments in cycling for over 75 years and are now available directly to you.

Here’s a curated guide on how to choose your perfect jersey based on your riding style and weather conditions:

Cortina: the original wind-jersey

Classica: all-around, 4-season jersey

Fuoristrada: off-road, tear-resistant jersey.

Leggera: the quintessential jersey for hot weather

Superleggera: our lightest jersey ever.


Cortina Jersey

The original “Windjersey” is born here in 1993 and has been perfected ever since. Now featuring a full windproof and water-resistant construction, the Windjersey is perfect for Early Spring training and for riding in windy and wet conditions. Featuring a slim fit to be worn under the skin thanks to a Super Fine Merino Wool lining that works as an integral base layer, the Cortina is equipped with four back pockets for additional storage capacity. Made in Italy.


Classica Jersey

A quintessential cycling jersey, our Classica is a perfect combination of performance and style.

Made from a proprietary Super Fine Merino Wool and recycled polyester, medium weight fabric, the Classica is the best of both worlds. Natural wool has the ability to absorb vapor sweat while polyester dries quicker than Lycra and other synthetics.

Designed for Spring and Early Summer training and racing, the Classica features a streamlined construction and a timeless style. Classic fit with raglan sleeves means more comfort and freedom of movement. Made in Italy.


Fuoristrada Jersey

Similar in weight to our Classica, the Fuoristrada jersey blends Super Fine merino Wool and Cordura Nylon, medium weight fabric for optimal moisture management and tear-resistance.

Designed for Spring and Early summer riding, the Fuoristrada features extra storage capacity to safely stow essentials. Classic fit with set-in sleeves allows for comfort and creates a clean look. Made in Italy.


Leggera Jersey

Perfect for warmer weather, the Leggera is crafted from Italian microfiber to keep you cool when the heat is on. Four reinforced pockets provide increased storage capacity and stability despite the fabric’s lightest weight compared to our Classic and Fuoristrada. Nylon content allows for a virtually odorless jersey, no matter how intense the action.


Superleggera Jersey

Blending feather-weight, natural silk with incredibly tightly-woven microfiber, the Superleggera is our lightest jersey ever, weighting less than 100 grams in size medium. Perfect for hot and humid conditions, Superleggera also features an easy-glide zip for ventilation and a fourth zippered pocket to safely stow essentials. Race, closer fit. Made in Italy.
