Campagnolo‘s product range includes cycling apparel and its latest addition is the L118 Women’s Racing Jersey. The long-sleeved jersey provides the needed warmth and full coverage for women cyclists, especially during the winter months. Its fabric is made with a hollow-core material called “Alaska” that provides heat control. This also meant less sweat gathers because the fabric promotes overall dryness.

The L118 has shaped sleeves and fits to the body but is extremely breathable and non-restrictive. Anti-bacterial in a sense that the Alaska fabric guarantees no bacteria from moisture.

There are two back pockets to house valuables, a silicone gripper with the reflective Campagnolo logo and red detailing on the sides. The L118 comes in two colors and with sizes from XS to XL.

When you browse the Campagnolo system it seems similar to the Shimano Di2 but this time with wires in replacement of the gear cables and a battery-powered gear placed on the down tube just behind the bottle case.
