The Promessa Jersey cleverly disguises extreme performance with design details that make people think you bought the jersey for the looks, not the tech. The engineered knit fabric allows us to make the front extra stretchy, while the back has limited stretch so that the pockets don't sag when you load them up. We knit in extra ventilation and subtle design details to balance technical features and sophisticated design.
Engineered knit in polyester/LycraÂ® for excellent fit and moisture management
Limited-stretch back supports pockets even when fully loaded
Full-length YKKÂ® VislonÂ® zipper
3 rear pockets plus zippered key pocket with reflective tape
Weight: 109g (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.
