The best deals on quality Italian kit that the internet has to offer right now
Seeing the little scorpion logo of Castelli on a piece of clothing is usually a sign of some high quality kit, but unfortunately that usually means that it comes with a high price tag too.
Happily, the big internet retailers often offer some pretty hefty discounts – and we’ve certainly seen quite a few nestled in the sale racks.

Castelli Perfetto long sleeve jersey – was £150, now £99.99
Read more: Castelli Perfetto long sleeve jersey review
Not the convertible (like the one below), but the standard long sleeve model, although, there’s nothing “standard” about this piece of kit.
We’ve reviewed it and found it to be simply superb – waterproof, windproof and really comfortable.
Castelli Perfetto Convertible Jacket – was £210, now £100
Designed for rides in slightly milder but damp conditions, Castelli has incorporated a Gore Windstopper 150 fabric on the front, sleeves and yoke to offer lightweight wind protection – whilst a Nano Light material at the rear sheds water and allows for breathability.

Castelli Procaccini Wool Long Sleeve Base Layer – was £110, now £66
Temperatures have certainly dropped over the last few days – but a long sleeved, wool base layer can keep you much more comfortable for longer. This one from Wiggle is down to just £22 if you go for red or ‘mirage’ (grey). Nuyarn performance wool fabric is mixed with 15% nylon for greater softness and durability.
Castelli Transparente 3 FZ Windproof Long Sleeve Cycling Jersey – was £145, now £74.99
Fits like a jersey, protects like a jacket – the Castelli Transparente features Windstopper X-Lite Plus front panels, with splash resistance thrown in. It’s a warm and breathable winter layer you can work hard in whilst staying comfortable.
Castelli Gabba 3 Jersey – was £150, now £75
The Castelli Gabba is basically the best water resistant race jersey in the business. It’s lightweight, breathable, but keeps the worst of the rain off – and no brand has been able to knock it off the top step of the podium yet. Wiggle has the short sleeve (to be paired with arm warmers) version reduced to £75 in a range of colours.
Castelli Women’s Gabba Jersey – was £140, now £77
The iconic rain jersey in a women’s cut, down to £77 in a number of variants.
Castelli Belgian Bootie Oversock was £20 now £7.99
Winter has arrived – but some oversocks will keep the worst off, and these are just the ticket.
Castelli makes proper top end kit but there are a lot of deals floating around – keep checking back for more…
