Spring and fall rides may offer some of the sweetest cycling of the year, but Mother Nature has a way of being a bit fickle in those shoulder seasons. Your ride may start out with balmy temperatures and sun-baked tarmac, but it's only a matter of minutes before harsh winds can roll through and bring your core temperature down below your level of comfort. De Marchi answers nature's unpredictable seasons with the Cortina Wind Jersey, which combines an adaptive fit that keeps you comfortable in the saddle, with a blend of merino wool, polyester, and polyurethane to slice through the elements should they turn on you. The jersey's blend of wool and polyester come together for a winning combination that offers you the breathability and durability of synthetic, with all of the natural properties that wool has to offer. Wool naturally prevents odor when you're sweating profusely from a series of hill sprints and long mountain climbs, and dries quickly to keep your core warm on the ride back down. And since you'll presumably be encountering some weather and wind at some point during your ride, De Marchi fused a water-resistant and windproof panel to the front of the chest; this feature protects your vital organs from inclement weather. Meanwhile, reflective stripes across the chest are sure to increase your visibility on days that begin calm and transform to dark, gloomy days. Multiple rear pockets accommodate your necessities, and the zippered rear one features a water-resistant construction, making it ideal for a phone.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
