When we came out with the original Alpha Jacket, we wrote, Throw out everything you think you know about cycling jackets. We’ve done it once again. So throw out everything you think you know about cycling jackets. We started by keeping everything that made the original Alpha Jacket your favorite dry-weather jacket: the two-layer construction to separate the insulation layer from the outer shell, the double front opening to diffuse the cold air when you open up to ventilate, the excellent breathability, the flat wrist and waist openings, the articulated collar, the insanely soft stretch fabrics, and the great fit. By using Gore’s new Windstopper light rain-resistant membrane and DWR treatment, selective seam sealing, careful seam placement and construction, and a waterproof YKK Vislon zipper, we’ve made the jacket essentially waterproof while not compromising the characteristics that made it such a great dry-weather jacket. It’s a significant step toward Castelli’s goal of making clothing that performs impeccably in the dry but offers complete water protection in the rain. And it will make your riding enjoyable, rain or shine. - Rain or Shine engineering provides insulation and breathability for cold and dry rides, with effective waterproofing for wet rides - Gore Windstopper 150 fabric provides wind protection with high breathability and effective rain protection - Seam sealing on shoulders, reduced seaming and double stitching keep you mostly dry - Alpha construction separates wind/water protection layer from insulating layer for better ventilation and moisture evaporation - Raw-edge waist lies flat and moves with you - Raw-edge wrist cuffs lie flat for a perfect interface with gloves - Stretch fabrics with advanced patterning make for an excellent close-to-body fit that still accommodates a wide range of body types - 3 rear pockets with reflective laser-cut drain holes
Just like the name says, we wanted to create the ideal simple emergency rain jacket. We made it completely waterproof and compact, and, as you’d expect from Castelli, we also gave it an amazing on-bike fit, yet it’s still roomy enough to fit over a Gabba. This jacket is an emergency piece, so we knew you wouldn’t want to break the bank with it, but the only real compromise compared to our top-of-the-line offerings is in breathability. We didn’t make this for an all-day rain ride, but it’s just right for your next emergency. - Deluge Light 2.5-layer waterproof fabric keeps rain off with 10,000 mm water column - Slight amount of stretch for excellent fit in riding position - Folds into half a jersey pocket for emergency situations - Innovative gutters drain water away from hands and off back - Waterproof zipper and seam sealing keep all water out
NOT YOUR NORMAL REMOVABLE-SLEEVE JACKET We went back to the design table to come up with a better way to make a removable-sleeve jacket and in the process created a brilliantly versatile jacket. The zippers sit just above the elbow and cover 3/4 of the circumference of the arm. With the sleeves in place, you have Castelli's top-performing Perfetto RoS long-sleeve jacket. Remove the sleeves and you have a real Gabba to wear with your Nano Flex arm warmers. The zippers are covered so you don't see them from the outside or feel them from the inside. For Winter 2019 the Perfetto Convertible gets the RoS treatment: Rain or Shine. The same breathability and fit you've come to expect from the Perfetto, but now with significantly improved rain protection, including seam sealing on the shoulders. We've also differentiated the fabrics so you get extra warmth on forward-facing surfaces and lighter stretch on rear-facing surfaces. We always thought a jacket that becomes a vest is kinda useless. But a jacket that becomes a Gabba ... that's brilliant. - Zips just above elbows to allow use as long- or short-sleeve jacket - Castelli exclusive GORE-TEX INFINIUM 205 Warm brushed waterproof fabric on front-facing surfaces - GORE-TEX INFINIUM 203 Stretch on rear-facing surfaces for extra stretch and breathability - Taped shoulder seams for extra rain protection - YKK Vislon zipper for easy sliding, covered for extra wind and rain protection - Zippered ventilation opening on side of chest - 2 rear pockets with pump sleeve are easily accessed with gloved hands - Gabba-style dropped tail with large black reflective panel - 4°-16°C / 39°-61°F - Weight: 322g
We made this as an aero rain jacket for Team Ineos. The high-stretch fabrics with a smooth face make this our most aero race option. But it's good for so much more: it's packable and fits in a jersey pocket, it's fully waterproof and seam-sealed to keep the rain out, and it features a long tail to protect you from wheel spray, while the external pockets are handy for stashing food. The sleeves have a three-layer fabric for comfort on the skin, while the inner textile layer is eliminated on the main body to save weight and keep the piece compact for packability. The downside is that the PU membrane means it isn't as breathable as a Perfetto or Gabba, so this isn't as good for long, steady medium-intensity rides. Oh, and keep in mind that it's cut for a skin-tight fit on WorldTour riders—you've been warned. - Pocketable stretch fit waterproof jacket - Torrent Stretch 2-layer fabric in body for lightweight compactability - Torrent Stretch 3-layer fabric slides easily over bare arms - Stretch aero fit - 3 rear pockets with Gabba-style tail - YKK Vislon zipper - Seam-sealed for waterproofness
The Castelli Sempre Jacket is super lightweight and has DWR Schermo Fabric which resists wind and light rain with extreme air permeability for ventilation. There is laser ventilation at the collar and the No-Sew Construction brings the garment from functional to classy. There is a YKK Vislon Zipper for ultimate ventilation when you need it. There is a silicone gripper elastic on the back to prevent ride up. There are two covered rear pockets.
A lightweight packable shell, ideal for stuffing into your pocket in case of rain on those unpredictable days. The Squadra ER jacket will shut out the wind and provide a bit of protection from light rain while still being small enough to pack into your back pocket or seat bag. An essential item for every ride. - Minimalist shell jacket for that long Dolomite descent or unexpected rain shower - Coated 100% polyester ripstop fabric is windproof and moderately water-resistant - Rear vent opening - Camlock zipper - Rear reflective detailing
