    The story of Italia Pink:

    This is a pastel pink reminiscent of the Maglia Rosa Jersey worn by the leader of the Giro D'Italia. We, as a company, have always loved this color. While we have offered it in the past in a number of women's styles, the only product in pink we ever made for men was a Trucker Cap. (Our company founder, Emilio De Soto, has for years been easily recognizable at races for wearing this pink cap in competition.) We found it fitting to decorate this garment with stripes of the Italian National Flag Colors of green, white, and red.

    In a world where cheap jerseys are a commodity given away at many cycling events, it is hard to justify spending money on one that is not. Once you wear the Skin Cooler™ Bike Jersey, you will see why ours is worth it.

    • Full-front opening YKK® Zipper
    • Skin Cooler™ Piqué body for ultimate coolness and sun protection (see below)
    • 3 back pockets
    • Sunglass loop (another De Soto invention)
    • Skin Cooler gripper waist elastic hold it in place
    • The zipper lengths for each size: S-23", M-24", L-25", XL-26", XXL-27"
    • This environmentally-friendly innovation is completely free of solvents

    What is Skin Cooler Pique?

    Skin Cooler™ Pique is identical to Skin Cooler SDS™ in its cooling and sun protection, but it has no spandex. Instead is has a small waffle knit which allow stretch around the body. When the human body gets hot, it sweats to cool itself. In the past, other brands have tried to help that process by developing fabrics that wick moisture away from the skin and expedite evaporation. For over 10 years now, De Soto has taken this concept a step further by using that moisture to create a cooling effect. YES! WE WANT YOU WET. Skin Cooler™ works by a series of channels knitted into light fabric. As these channels get wet, they absorb moisture and swell, which dissipates the heat making the fabric against your skin actually cooler. How much cooler depends on factors including airflow, humidity, ambient temperature, and moisture temperature. When you sweat, the garment’s temperature drops and creates an actual cooling sensation. Skin Cooler™ offers this cooling effect while offering even more sun protection.

    Even though Skin Cooler™ Pique and Skin Cooler SDS™ block 90% of UVB rays, we always recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen’s SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and/or avobenzone.

    This white version is a great jersey to use for custom graphics.
