The wait is over (sort of): Maratona release the 2018 edition race kit!

The time has finally arrived. After three days of jersey design inspiration leaks, Castelli and Maratona dles Dolomite have released the two new designs for male and female cyclists challenging the 32nd edition of the Maratona dles Dolomites on July 1, 2018.

The two designs unveiled tonight have been inspired by the landscape and nature of the Badia valley. To gather inspiration for the creative process, we asked six local athletes and mountain-loving friends to bring their favorite colors or objects found in nature in the Badia valley to the design table.

Fans and cyclists not participating at the Maratona will have the first opportunity to buy one of the brand-new kits on Castelli-cycling.com starting on Monday, July 2nd.

Thanks to Ashley and Jered Gruber  for participating in this video, climbing the extraordinary, excruciating 138-kilometer long route with just short of 4,200 meters (13,780 feet) of climbing.

What do you think about the new colors? chat about the two new kits in the comments below.

Make sure you learn the Italian and Ladin pronunciation of “balance” in your preparation for the Maratona race in two weeks.

    The men’s jersey is amazing, I don’t like the women’s, why do they have to be different ?

    I agree with Lucy. I LOVE the men’s kit colour and it looks like it’s full zip! Less keen on colour for ladies jersey and looks like it’s half zip again :-(. Gilet looks fabulous tho!!!

    La maglia da uomo decisamente migliore di quella da donna che ha dei colori pessimi! Un pò come quella di due anni fa che era rosa…colore scontato e non sempre apprezzato dal mondo femminile! Per fortuna è possibile cambiare la maglia al ritiro pacco gara e come due anni fa la cambierò con quella da uomo!

    I love the womens jersey. The colours will match perfectly with my bike.
    I’m only wondering if the women size XL will be available as well. As I will never fit the (small) L italian sized jersey :-(

    Bravi, il kit Maratona e’ sempre il top. Pero’ direi che la maglia da uomo ancora una volta piu’ bella – vorremmo tutte fare uno swap! E mannaggia per la zip corta, anche per quella ci sentiamo “penalizzate”- come mai?

    Molto belli i colori del modello uomo un po’ meno i colori della donna anche se adoro il modello con top incorporato proposto da castelli, molto femminile.

    This is the fifth Maratona jersey from Castelli and the third in boring dark color. One white, one red. Creativity definitely looks different.
