Castelli for the cyclist seeking maximum performance.
Maurizio created his eponymous brand in 1974 and a series of firsts would follow: the first Lycra shorts used in racing and sold to the public, the first coloured shorts, the first sublimation printed jerseys, the first synthetic winter clothing, the first use of windproof membranes, the first hydrophilic fabric treatments, the first anatomic seatpad, the lightest jersey ever produced, and the most aerodynamic jersey ever produced. Maurizio’s vision was to be at the forefront of technology, performance and design.
Castelli engineered an extremely high amount of protection into a minimum-sized package. Using a 30 g/m2 water-repellent and windproof fabric, they created a jacket that disappears into half a jersey pocket when not in use, yet provides wind and rain protection when needed. Fit is predictably close to the body to minimize flapping in the wind.
