Castelli clothes – style and innovation signed by the scorpion
When fast cyclists pass you on the road, bent forward in a very low position, often the only thing that you remember from their professional cycling clothing is a red dot. The red round logo with the white scorpion is characteristic of Castelli cycling clothing. The recognition is high: the scorpion stands for Castelli and Castelli stands for cycling clothing which meets the highest demands of performance oriented cyclists.
All along Castelli has been the vanguard in technical development of cycling clothing. Many innovations of Castelli cycling clothing are standard today for the entire cycling clothing range:
- The sublimation print
- The ergonomic Y-shaped chamois
- Thermal clothing with fine fleece interior
- Women’s cycling clothing
- Water resistant Nano coatings
And also in terms of aerodynamics Castelli cycling clothing is cutting edge. When every second counts even the clothing can make a difference. The cuts of the Aero Race Castelli cycling clothing are tailored to fit the extremely low seated cycling posture of road cyclists. The lightweight fabrics are extra smooth or equipped with textures optimising aerodynamics. Different mesh materials perfectly regulate the body climate. Castelli cycling trousers support muscles and endurance due to their slightly compressing effect. This Race Castelli cycling clothing features a small number of seams, was tested inside the wind tunnel and snugs you like a second skin.
Also very renowned and highly popular: Castelli Race bodysuits with Sanremo construction. With this design the upper is sewn to the trousers in the back. The front though is not fixed. This way you can open it completely like a Castelli jersey. Sanremo makes putting on and taking off “onesies” perfectly uncomplicated and of course also biological breaks. With the Aero Race Castelli clothing you will clearly be on the inside track in any competition but also on sweat-inducing stages.
The development of the Gabba cycling jacket is another milestone in the history of Castelli cycling clothing. Gabba or Perfetto, as the line is called today, is the perfect blend of wind clothing and jersey. These light jackets made from lightweight Gore Windstopper X-Lite Softshell are windproof, water resistant and highly breathable. In addition the material is elastic to such an extent that it allows for a tight cut without compromising your freedom of movement. The light jackets of the Castelli cycling clothing collection are perfect for intense cycling training in unpredictable weather conditions. No noisy Nylon fluttering in the wind as we know it from wind jackets, you have easy access to the rear pockets, air resistance is kept at a minimum, you are protected from drizzle and spray and the comfort provided equals that of a jersey. In the Perfetto line you can find several variants of these cycling jackets of the Castelli cycling clothing collection: with long sleeves, with short sleeves, with zippable sleeves and with nano coated Lycra in back. The Gabba 3 jacket dates back to the original series and features short sleeves and is made completely from Softshell.
