Starting out we have a vital piece of kit to see you through the rainy rides which are inevitable at some point or another…

Castelli Beta RoS Cycling Jacket: Lightweight with Wet Weather Protection!

The Beta RoS Jacket follows in the footsteps of all Castelli’s Rain or Shine (RoS) collection by providing superb dry weather performance and wet weather protection.

The Beta is a thin wind and splash barrier that provides a surprising amount of warmth while being incredibly lightweight. At 212g in a size large the Beta is lighter than many long sleeve jerseys.

The jacket achieves the triple crown of wind and rain protection, breathability, and low weight by using a combination of Castelli’s lightest and stretchiest fabrics, Polartec® Neoshell® and Nano Flex Light. Polartec® is used on the front and the upper of the sleeves to provide windproof and waterproof protection where you need it most.

Nano Flex Light woven fabric is used on the back allowing any excessive moisture and heat to escape whilst also shedding light rain.

Castelli Tempesta Lite Cycling Jacket: Reflective and Fully Waterproof!

Women’s Version Here

The waterproof, packable jacket to take on all your rides. It’s highly breathable and extremely light, with a great fit. Perfect to have if there is a chance of rain or if you just want extra protection on a long descent.

The lightest and most packable fully waterproof Castelli GORE-TEX® jacket. GORE-TEX® waterproof fabric is fully waterproof yet offers unmatched breathability. The entire lower back is in GORE-TEX® Topo stretch fabric to allow the jacket to expand in diameter if you have a few extra winter kilos or full pockets.

Reflective tape on back of both sleeves for high visibility in low-light conditions. YKK® Vislon® waterproof zipper slides easily for ventilation adjustments. Internal wrist gaiter seals wrist and integrates with glove to keep water out.

Ideal for temperatures of: 4°C – 18°C / 39°F – 64°F.

Castelli Mortirolo 6S Cycling Jacket: For those chilly winter mornings…

The Castelli Mortirolo 6S Jacket lies at the less severe end of Castelli’s winter range. It is intended to take the edge off dry, cold mornings and allow warm-blooded cyclists to ride without overheating.

The upper chest and sleeves of the jacket are constructed from windproof yet breathable Gore-Tex Infinium™ Windstopper® X-Fast fabric, which has a fleece liner for added softness and warmth, while the lower body is made from thinner Gore-Tex Infinium™ Windstopper® fabric.

Meanwhile, the back is constructed from a more breathable fabric with no windproof veneer, which allows moisture to escape freely. This combination of wind proofing at the front and breathability at the back helps you to maintain a stable core temperature in cool weather, regardless of your activity levels.

Finished with a reflective panel at the chest and useful pockets, the Castelli Mortirolo 6S Jacket is minimalist and will keep you pleasantly warm on a fine winter’s day.

Castelli Passista Long Sleeve Cycling Jersey: Breathability for hard training!

The Castelli Passista Long Sleeve Jersey is a thermal garment with a colourful yet sharp design, made for use on cool days when a jacket would be too much. It’s constructed from Warmer fabric with a cosy, fleecy inner surface, with breathability in mind to keep you from overheating when you’re climbing or riding hard in training.

The jersey is made with stretch panels at the side, to ensure a perfect fit, and gripper elastic at the hem to keep chilly air from entering between your bib shorts and jersey.

It also has three roomy rear pockets for your snacks and spares, making the Passista Long Sleeve a jersey you’ll be proud to use for commuting and club rides when it’s cool out, not just for training runs.

Castelli Perfetto Light Gloves: Breathable with Unprecedented Protection!

The Castelli Perfetto Light Gloves are a beautiful exercise in garment design, highly breathable, fully windproof and offering high-grade water protection, all in a lightweight format.

Explicitly designed to complement the widely lauded Perfetto and Perfetto Light Jackets, the Perfetto Light Gloves are the result of meticulous care and attention from Castelli’s dedicated research and development team.

The Perfetto Light Gloves utilise a upgraded Gore-Tex Infinium stretch light fabric to give you unprecedented protection from wind and rain.

The minimal rolled-seam construction, cut for perfect positioning when cradling your handlebars, provides additional protection from the elements and gives you maximal dexterity.

Castelli Tutto Nano Bib Tights: For Rainy Spells…

The Tutto Nano Bib Tights are a true winter training staple – super soft, exceptionally warm and with Castelli’s best rain protection yet, this latest evolution in bib tight technology is too good to be missed.

The Nano Flex 3G fabric used across the garment utilises a combination of newly updated durable water repellent (DWR) treatment and mechanical heat treatment to give previously unheard-of levels of rain protection.

Light rain beads off the fabric, keeping you dry when those inevitable rainy spells descend.

Castelli Pro Thermal Mid Long Sleeve Jersey: Lightweight and Effective…

A favourite with Castelli’s sponsored pros, the Castelli Pro Thermal Mid Long Sleeve Jersey gives you some extra warmth for those early Autumn days and the remnants of Spring. 

The jersey uses Castelli’s mid-weight Warmer X-Stretch fabric throughout. This fabric has a touch of spandex in it to make it high stretch, so it has a close-to-body aero fit without feeling restrictive.

It is lighter than other thermal jerseys, but this makes it ideal for when a short sleeve jersey feels like a bit of a push and for high intensity rides where it is easy to overheat.

The Pro Thermal is performance through and through. The jersey has Castelli’s signature drop pocket design, 3 rear pockets, and a YKK® Vislon® zipper for easy ventilation. 

That rounds up our top Castelli Autumn/Winter picks, there is of course many more to choose from. Explore the full range by clicking here!
