When Castelli first introduced the aero jersey to the pro peloton in 2007 it was seen as radical. By 2009 all the pro teams were jumping on the bandwagon, and in the following years the aero revolution steadily spread to more and more cyclists. This women's-fit version of their WorldTour-level aero race jersey, is the fastest they've ever tested!
The front of the Castelli Areo Jersey is made from Velocity Dry fabric and the back, a 3D mesh. Both fabrics keep moisture under-control, ensuring you stay dry and don't overheat, which is essential for any kind of ride. Its Air Mesh arm bands offer high stretch and also act to keep your body dry and cool, whilst helping the jersey stay in place.
A compression band around the waist keeps the three, slightly angled, rear pockets in a sturdy position, so its easy to access whilst sat on the bike - whatever the speed you're at. One zipped key pocket proves useful for tiny valuables, a full-length front zip makes for a simple on/off action and silicone gripper elastic at the waist, will keep things where they should be.
When Castelli started engineering aero jerseys, they never imagined they would become the new normal. You'll find that every ride is faster and more fun in this not-only-for-racing jersey.

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.
