​​Generally they cover less of the neck, too, but that depends on the model.

The Castelli trisuit I've got is really quick-drying, but cheaper trisuits I've tried and our club trisuits aren't really any better than regular summer cycling kit and worse than a few higher end summer jerseys I've tried, so the fabric is really going to depend on the price range.
