Description

Details

Castelli's Trasparente Jersey for women is a brilliant hybrid. In fact, Castelli claim that it 'fits like a jersey, protects like a jacket'.

How so?! The fabric combinations are very like to those of the Transition Jacket, but the fit and weight make it feel much more like a thermal jersey.

All this makes it tricky to pin down - and consequently incredibly versatile, ideal for any ride that's neither sizzlingly hot nor icy cold. The slim cut will make your fellow riders think you've misread the forecast!

The Trasparente's front-facing fabric on torso and sleeves is Polartec's unique NeoShell, making it windproof and waterproof whilst remaining exceptionally stretchy and breathable. The back panel is made from Nano Flex Xtra Dry, which offers water repellency while letting heat out.

You'll find yourself using the Castelli Trasparente on days when you might otherwise wear a jacket, and on 'jersey days' you'll look and feel lighter and more nimble whilst protected from the elements.

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!
