Description

Details

The Castelli Transition for women is the ideal lightweight jacket for - as you might guess - those tricky in-between days in spring and autumn. And perhaps even for other seasons too. We're talking those days when you don't know whether the rain or wind might intervene, yet you don't want to be overheating if it stays dry and the sun comes out.

The peerless GoreTex Infinium Windstopper mid-weight material ensures your front (the bit facing the wind) stays warm, whilst the fleecy Warmer fabric covering the back lets the excess heat out and avoids perspiration becoming uncomfortable.

As Castelli's lightest weight cycling jacket, the Transition jacket is the a great all rounder. It will get you comfortably through a remarkable variety of cycling conditions - even more if you layer up with an insulating layer underneath - whilst remaining barely more noticeable than a comfortable jersey.

Size Guide

Castelli Size Guide

Note: where Castelli once had a reputation for making gear that suited only very small Italian people, the Castelli women's size scale is now very similar to 'normal' UK sizing.

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!
