Details

Smart, high performing and comfortable for the ride, this cycling vest is superb for changing weather conditions. If you commute to work, love a weekend or tempo ride, then having a packable jacket with you (without the need for a bag) is essential.

Made from a Pertex Quantum base fabric, Castelli's Superleggera women's vest offers low air permeability helping you stay dry and protected against windchill. The fabric feels soft, even though it's durable, plus it's ultra light for excellent packability - what we call, the perfect trio. The water resistant outer, repels light showers and road spray, a waterproof stretch panel up the centre, helps steer water down, off the vest and side mesh panels aids breathability, so you ride comfortably.

Superleggera packs down nicely in a back jersey pocket, so if the rain or wind picks up, grabbing the vest shouldn't be a problem. Reflective strips give extra visibility in low-light, a long tail ensures an on-the-bike fit and a full length zipper makes removal quick and easy.

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!
