Giro d'Italia 2019, new jerseys unveiled today

Made by Castelli with SITIP fabrics. Maglia Bianca signed Candido Cannavò, commemorating the 10th anniversary of his death. New partnership with Intimissimi Uomo.

Unveiled today are the Jerseys of the 102nd Giro d’Italia, organised by RCS Sport / La Gazzetta dello Sport and held from 11 May to 2 June. The jerseys are produced by Manifatture Valcismon – with the famous scorpion brand, Castelli, designer of the jerseys – all made with special SITIP fabrics.

The 2019 race jerseys have been designed to be light and aerodynamic, with seams that follow the shape of the athlete’s body and guarantee a perfect fit. There will be four different SITIP fabrics used, positioned in different parts of the body to maximize aerodynamics and breathability at the correct points. The sleeves are cut with a laser to optimize comfort and aerodynamics. The jerseys have also a zip with a golden puller that fades to pink, a tribute to the Infinite Trophy, which this year also features a the design across the riders’ chests.

The jerseys of the Giro d’Italia are:

  • MAGLIA ROSA (pink) – General Classification leader, sponsored by Enel
  • MAGLIA CICLAMINO (cyclamen) – Sprinter Classification leader, sponsored by Segafredo
  • MAGLIA AZZURRA (blue) – King of the Mountains Classification leader, sponsored by Banca Mediolanum
  • MAGLIA BIANCA (white) – Young Rider General Classification leader, sponsored by Eurospin

The Maglia Bianca signed by Candido Cannavò

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the disappearance of the unforgettable La Gazzetta dello Sport Editor in Chief, Candido Cannavò, the Giro d’Italia is paying a special tribute by printing his signature and his phrase “Il Giro è il filo rosa che unisce tutta l’Italia” [The Giro is the pink thread that unites the entire Italy] on the collar of the Maglia Bianca of Best Young Rider, the jersey which has been dedicated to Cannavò since the 2009 edition.

Official celebratory Jerseys

Just for the 102nd Giro, Castelli has also created two versions of the official shirts, namely the Giro102 Race version – an exact replica of the one worn by the pros – and the Giro102 Squadra version, a jersey with an optimal fit, that’s quick drying and with luxurious comfort. Both are available in the Official Jersey version and in the following options, celebrating stages and special occasions: Bologna Jersey, Sangiovese Jersey, Novi Ligure Jersey, Gavia-Mortirolo Jersey, Feltre-Croce d’Aune Jersey and Verona Jersey.

A new partnership with Intimissimi Uomo

A new collaboration is announced today between the Giro d’Italia and Intimissimi Uomo, an exclusive Italian brand of men’s underwear. For the first time in the history of the Giro, the Pink Jerseys used in the race and on the podium will feature a sponsor’s design internally. Concealed inside the zipped shirt, and perfectly visible only once unfastened, the Intimissimi Uomo logo will always be in contact with the sportsman’s skin, reflecting the brand’s slogan: “Experience the emotion on your skin”.
