We had an absolutely cracking summer, but it’s just about time to put the short sleeve jerseys and shorts away as we head towards winter.
The latest kit from Castelli has just landed at our stores, so we thought this would be the perfect time to take you through a few of the key pieces.
We made our way up to the iconic Box Hill with Pete from our Dulwich store who kindly volunteered to be our model for the day. Find out more below.
Castelli Perfetto RoS 2 Jacket
The Castelli Perfetto RoS 2 jacket is a versatile, weatherproof jacket that offers fantastic protection against rain and wind when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
The front facing surfaces of this jacket feature a Castelli-exclusive GORE-TEX Infinium Windstopper 205 warm brushed water-resistant fabric, while the rear-facing surfaces feature Gore-Tex Infinium Windstopper 203 Stretch for better stretch and breathability.
The second edition of this jacket has an extra pocket for additional storage, improved reflectivity at the back, a two-way zip for temperature control and a roomier yet still race ready fit. Improved placement of the taped shoulder seams also offers better protection from the rain.
The Perfetto RoS 2 jacket is perfect for layering through autumn and winter. It’s non-insulated but easily ventilated and can be paired with either a standard base layer or thermal jersey as required, keeping you comfortable in a variety of conditions.
Castelli Tutto Nano Bibtights
A winter training staple! Super soft, exceptionally warm and offering the best rain protection yet thanks to the newly updated Nano Flex 3G fabric – Castelli’s latest offering in the form of the Tutto Nano Bibtight is too good to be missed.
The Tutto Nano’s Kiss Air2 seat pad offers long lasting comfort in the saddle, while the minimal seams provide a clean aesthetic and plenty of freedom of movement.
