The Castelli Solare top is perfect to ensure you don't over heat whilst spinning or cycling - plus it helps mitigate those jersey tan lines which only some cyclists really, truly love!

With an integrated sports bra and the triple rear pockets, this top was made with serious riding in mind. It's easy to pull on and off thanks to the full-length front zipper, and the zip-front internal bra allows you to regulate your temperature whilst retaining your modesty.

The Softlex fabric provides active cooling in hot conditions. You'll never want to wear anything else for those really hot days - or spin classes - again.

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!
