WINTER RIDING WITH CASTELLI AW18
Darker nights and colder days can make it tricky to choose the right gear for a ride. Castelli’s Autumn/Winter collection is as broad as it is versatile; from subtle reflective touches to full-on dayglo and from lightweight wind-proofs to all-out winter jackets, making it easier to exactly match your outfit to the conditions. Add a matching headband, scull-cap, full-fingered gloves, toe covers or full shoe covers to complete your warm, dry, visible and -as always with Castelli- stylish outfit.
Castelli’s Raddoppia brings you the warmth of all-over Windstopper protection while the perforations in the front reflective panel allow a small amount of air to come in for additional breathability. Additionally, Castelli have brought very high levels of reflectivity to a garment that you will want to wear all the time. If you’re more likely to be wearing it, then you’re more likely to get the protection it can provide.
The Cielo FZ Jersey features Castelli’s new Warmer Plus fabric, which has a slightly tighter knit to keep you warmer while still being lightweight and having excellent moisture management. They've added some construction details like a drop pocket design, the stretch side panels moved farther to the back, and the Zen neck flap to cover the zip.
Where you really feel the benefit of Castelli’s knowledge & experience is in the bib tights, and the Sorpasso 2 is a prime example of this; the combination of Thermoflex Core2 and standard fleecy Thermoflex fabrics gives an exceptionally wide comfort range and an excellent fit. The Core2 fabric offer great insulation and some additional protection from the wind. Where a bit more give is needed, the regular Thermoflex material steps in to ensure the garment gives the right amount of compression without becoming restrictive.
