Castelli didn't design the Mortirolo for extreme cold or rainy conditions, but that's what makes it so good for the cool/cold conditions when you do most of your autumn, winter and spring riding.
Their warmest Windstopper® fabric does the protection duty on the front and sleeves, while their fleecy Warmer fabric on the back gives you far better moisture management.
This jacket is recommended for temperatures above 6C exactly where you'll likely do most of your riding. The fit is close-to-body without being overly tight, and Castelli have carefully finished the details, from the YKK® Vislon zipper to the elastic in the waistband.
- Gore Windstopper X-Fast Protection on front, sleeves and core for soft breathable insulation.
- The back has warm thermal fleece fabric for exceptional ventilation.
- 3 rear pockets
- Reflective viz strips for low-light visibility
- YKK Vislon zipper.
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.
