Castelli's Tabula Rasa Jersey is one of the most eye-catching and bold designs we've encountered in an age. And here at VV Towers we just love it.
From a purely practical perspective, it's nicely visible out on the roads. And you're sure to stand out within the peloton too!
But don't let these spectacular graphics deceive - the Tabula Rasa is a serious piece of cycling gear. Castelli have reduced the seams and simplified the panelling of their famous Aero Race jersey to maximise the creativity and allow for such artistic licence: that has benefits for the fit and feel too.
And the details are equally impressive: the jersey uses top quality ProSecco Micromesh fabric, and the same zip and pocket construction that were used on Team Sky's race jerseys. A surefire way to put your own stamp on your ride.
Why not team it up with the spectacular matching bibshorts?

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.

Gorgeous coloursReview by Funkylady
The colours of the top are true to the picture. I normally have to go up a size in Castelli cycling jerseys however I would say that the sizing of this jersey is generous. A medium in Castelli for me is usually a nice snug fit but a medium in this jersey is slightly looser and I probably would've managed to fit into a small but a little bit of room is nice. At 5ft 5 the length of the jersey is just right. Can't wait to wear it.
