NZ MERINOS is the jersey that combines the traditional technical cycling clothing with the most innovative technology. Made of a blend of merino wool and polyester, it offers a pleasant warmth sensation in a natural way, while ensuring close-fitting and high-performance fit. Thanks to the Gravity® membrane on the chest area, the jersey is able to protect from wind and water while still maintaining high breathability. The elastic bands on the wrists and bottom side allow the jersey to be close-fitting. The slightly raised neck protects the cervical area from the cold even with the hands in a low position on the handlebar. The three back pockets have a layered cut to allow an increased capacity for storing the cape and gloves.

NATURE MEETS TECHNOLOGY
The newspaper on the chest, the felted wool jerseys, and the socks on top of the shoes ... all these systems were practiced by our grandparents to protect against the cold and the wind. Even today we see champions accepting some Gazette sheets from supporters before launching into the descent. This made us think: the experience must always be passed on. Therefore, we worked to create a winter jersey that was aware of the experience of heroic cycling, without giving up a simultaneous fully performance. The blended fabric of merino wool and polyester is the perfect answer for those who know that the past teaches the future.
ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
Managing to combine thermal insulation with performance in terms of fitting and aerodynamics is not something easy, since this process often entails an increase in volumes. Our garments always focus on an ergonomic design, in which the dry fit can compensate for fabric and material solutions that guarantee maximum insulation against the cold.
THE SUSTAINABILITY OF A SHORT PRODUCTION CHAIN
All our products are entirely made in Italy. We offer maximum attention to our production district located in Veneto and Lombardy, involving local partners who have been able to develop competitive production models on the basis of the know-how and result excellence. Therefore, our garments are produced in a confined area, using so little fuel for transport. Our products will do many km only when they will be worn on bicycles!
