A stunning jersey, that's not only got style, but created with a well ventilated, dry and comfortable fabric, to ensure every ride, is an impressive one.

Castelli's Imprevisto Jersey is made from Strada Nano fabric, which basically acts as a water repellent layer, yet still offers full breathability. In dry conditions, air flows through to prevent overheating and moisture is taken off the skin, to maintain dryness. If you get caught in light rain or road spray, the Nano finish repels water to keep you dry. Plus, it makes easy work for your washer too, dirt should wipe off rather than soaking through.

Other features such as a full length zip with flap and neck garage, make taking the jersey on/off simpler and reduces any chance of chin nipping. Which we always love. Three pockets with a small zipped pocket to stash all your cycling treats/essentials in and two reflective tabs for extra low light visibility.

Who's Behind It?

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!
