THE NAME CAN BE MISLEADING
This jersey started life as a lightweight jersey to make climbing easier. But it turned out to be ideal for hot weather, and, surprisingly, it's very good in cool weather or even rain (under a vest or jacket) because it has absolutely minimal moisture absorption. The inner lining keeps it modest and adds a nice design detail to one of our most technical jerseys ever.
StradaPro 3D fabric on back provides support to pockets and UPF 16 protection
75 g/m2 Flusso 3D fabric on front and shoulders keeps the jersey light and dry
Internal bustier eliminates problems with transparency
3 rear pockets
AirMesh arm bands
Weight: 95g (Small)
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.
