CASTELLI 2021 JERSEYS – MEN

Castelli has some of the most lightweight and breathable, well-ventilated jerseys in the market – perfect for the performance rider or someone who is keen to look great while out on a bike ride. We have a product for performance road riders as well as the randonneur attempting brevets.

SUPERLEGGERA 2

The Superleggera 2 can be looked at as Castelli’s flagship jersey for the 2021 season, with the most cutting edge technologies and specifications.

This is the jersey that brings Castelli’s fabric and construction engineering together in one of the most refined jerseys they’ve ever made. The objective of the jersey was to make it as light as possible without sacrificing transparency, sun protection and convenient features like a zippered key pocket.

Castelli has brought in a new fabric that we call Oltre, which roughly translates to “beyond”, and it really goes beyond what you normally find in a jersey, with the horizontal stripes giving great breathability and stretch while providing good support for the pockets.

The jersey will do double duty in your wardrobe: It’s the jersey to reach for on hot days or big climbing days in the mountains. But it’s also the jersey you’ll pull out when you just want to look good, thanks to the no-sew construction around the sleeves and hem and the close attention to detail in every stitch, seam and component.

It’s designed with a fit that is close to the body but slightly more relaxed than our race jerseys.

PRODUCT FEATURES
  • The deluxe, impossibly lightweight performance jersey
  • Oltre 70g stripe mesh base fabric
  • Stretch woven pocket reinforcement
  • No-sew welded sleeve and waist trim
  • Floating pocket construction with 3 main pockets and zippered key pocket
  • YKK® zipper
  • Sublimated overprint Superleggera logo on back
  • 22°-40°C / 70°-104°F
  • Weight:111 g

CLIMBER’S 3.0 SL JERSEY

Castelli made this jersey with Team Ineos for the rigours of pro racing in hot weather and in the high mountains. It’s extremely lightweight and features open fabrics for additional airflow and quick-drying while remaining aerodynamic.

Even if you don’t race over the hill or mountain this summer, you’ll love the soft stretch and great fit of this jersey, and you’ll appreciate how it keeps you cool on the hottest days.

Maybe you’ll even do like the pro riders do and use it on wet days because it doesn’t soak up any moisture. And you’ll certainly appreciate that the fabric on the back blocks more than 90% of UV rays.

PRODUCT FEATURES
  • CFD-based fabric placement and seam construction Engineered rapid cooling, lightweight and aero efficiency Airflow shoulder construction
  • Flusso 3D fabric on front and sleeve
  • StradaPro 3D back for breathability
  • Elbow-length stretch sleeves with raw-cut edge
  • YKK® Vislon® zipper
  • Drop tail for perfect pocket placement while keeping jersey fitting well at the waist
  • Weight: 107g

HORS CATEGORIE

This is the jersey for your big days in the saddle. It’s a high-performance piece of equipment that values comfort and utility, not just pro race aerodynamics and minimalism.

The main body fabric is a polyester blend with a bit of Lycra® for perfect fit and moisture management. It’s actually based on the same Velocity Rev3 fabric that Castelli have used in their Aero Race Jersey, but gave it about 20% more body for all-around performance and to better support the pockets.

They’ve used a 3D mesh through the back, along with a flat mesh on the side panels. The pockets are a bit larger than those on our race jerseys, for extra carrying capacity, and there’s a zippered pocket for keys and money.

Featuring a YKK® Vislon® zipper for the easiest sliding when closing or opening and they’re GIRO3 elastic waistband to distribute the load.

The Rapido Jersey features a striking graphic that uses multiple layers of textures and fades that are made possible with a digital print sublimation process. As the name implies, it conveys speed.

The main body fabric has a 7% Lycra® content for horizontal stretch combined with limited vertical stretch so your pockets don’t sag. THey’ve used their Tailwind dimpled stretch fabric on the sleeves, side panels and pockets for stretch and maximum ventilation.

Finishing details are top-notch, including the YKK® Vislon® zip and silicone gripper elastic at the waist to keep the jersey from riding up.

PROLOGO VI JERSEY

The Prologo name is Italian for “prologue,” the opening salvo in a Grand Tour. But many people pronounce it like “Pro Logo.” And that’s perfectly alright!

The Prologo Jersey, now in its sixth generation, does feature a big logo, but more than that it brings a lot of technology directly from their experience with pro racing.

The fabric is remarkably soft yet stretchy and features bioceramic nanoparticles added to the fused polymer, which reflects far-infrared light to both protect you from the hot sun and help the body keep itself warm.

The construction also borrows a lot of cues from pro racing: the same drop-tail construction that helps the jersey sit right around the waist while allowing generous pockets that sit lower on the back, the wraparound side panels that ventilate the back without letting in too much air from the front, and the easy-sliding YKK® Vislon® zipper.

Comes in both a Half Sleeve & Full Sleeve vesrions

CASTELLI 2021 BIBSHORTS – MEN

Castelli’s no-compromise approach to creating the best cycling clothing in the world is particularly evident in the subtle, but important refinements made year after year to their cycling bibs.

FREE AERO RACE 4 BIBSHORT

The Free Aero Race 4 Bibshort is Castelli’s top race bib-shorts, which also means that it’s insanely comfortable even if you never pin on a number.

The original Free Aero Race Bibshort was first introduced over a decade ago and has logged literally millions of kilometers under the backsides of Castellis sponsored pro riders and has been the best-selling short in the Castelli retail collection.

Over this time the short has undergone numerous updates and improvements in the never-ending quest to create the best short we can make. While the basic concept of a minimalist workhorse pro-level comfortable race short remains, every single fabric, component, stitch and construction method has been updated and improved over time.

The fourth major generation of the short features the updated Progetto X2 Air Seamless seat pad. This pad separates a soft, stretchy skin care layer that moves with your body from a generously padded cushioning layer that replicates the form of your saddle. Eight-hour rides are no problem.

Of course, the fabrics are premium, made to our specifications by Italy’s best fabric suppliers. The Forza fabric on the inner leg features 38% Lycra® content for a perfect fit, while the Vortex fabric on the side panels is dimpled for aerodynamics. And it’s held in place by the latest iteration of Castelli’s seamless flat Giro leg gripper.

A great pad is useless without great fit. The seams are placed around the hip area to create a perfect shape on the bike.
