Aero Nano Shoecover
Many of your rides with booties are in cool but not brutally cold conditions, maybe with wet roads or some rain, and of course you always want to be aero and fast. That's the thinking behind this bootie: aerodynamic for use in WorldTour TTs and water- and windproof fabric with sealed seams to keep the water out. It doesn't have any insulation so it won't cover your really cold-weather rides, but it's spot on for everything else. The upper portion is very stretchy, a silicone bead at the top helps prevent water coming in, and it has taped seams and a water-resistant zip, so this shoe cover is ideal for all but truly cold-weather conditions.
Q. What do a 19th century Italian tailor, a designer for the Milan Ballet and the first ever lycra cycling shorts have in common?
A. They are all part of a rich 140 year history that's led to today's most recognised brand in cycling: Castelli.
Throw in a heart attack on a famous Italian climb, family feuds, Olympic gold medals and controversy in the pro peloton and it begins to sound more like a Sicilian soap opera than the backdrop to a cycling brand. But then again Castelli is no ordinary brand.
Today, Castelli's scorpion emblem is arguably the single most recognised in cycling. Iconic is an overused word these days, but the Castelli brand surely qualifies.
We first discovered Castelli on our year long ride through the Americas in 2010, when our founder Liz (pictured) wore Castelli shorts and loved them, so stocking them seemed an obvious choice. But we're almost as captivated by the story behind the name as the kit itself! For the full Castelli story (it's quite a story!), click here.
