Details

Delivering high quality and functionality, Castelli Sempre Wind Vest offers wind protection and water resistance without compromising breathability. 

Designed from DWR Schermo fabric, this vest offers excellent wind protection, keeping the core warm on blustery cooler days or even on fast descents. With the added water resistance the Sempre vest beads light rain off effortlessly. 

Understanding that when working at your optimum there's a risk of overheating, Castelli have provided laser cut ventilation holes around the collar. When combined with the natural breathability of the DWR Schermo fabric, this vest presents great temperature and moisture management to prevent you from overheating in addition to keeping you dry.

The two rear pockets have been constructed with flaps for a cleaner aesthetic that provides ample space for riding essentials. Preventing these pockets from sagging when full, or from riding up, Castelli have provided a silicone gripper on the back for extra stability.

Featuring a YKK Vislon zipper and a selective no-sew construction, this vest is extremely sleek and stylish, with the added ability to fold up small enough to fit into a jersey pocket when the heat is really on.

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!
