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.
The good news is that the big internet retailers usually offer some pretty tasty discounts, especially on last season’s kit, so we’ve rounded up 12 of the best deals on offer right now.
21.99 – £13.99
Never underestimate the importance of full finger gloves, even if you think it’s going to be a warm day on the bike.
Even better, these have silicon finger ends so you can upload your ride to Strava without having to take your gloves off.

Castelli’s Velo gilet is perfect for when the spring weather turns a little inclement and blustery.
Even better, it packs up tiny so there should always be space for it in a jersey pocket.
Castelli Thermoflex knee warmers
£30 – £14.70

Imprevisto Nano water-repellant jersey
£80 – £47.99
Another great piece of Spring riding kit when you’re likely to get wet on the bike.
Currently, these are discount anywhere between £47.99-£63.99 so grab a bargain while you can.
Women’s Gabba windproof jersey
£111 – £55.99
The female equivalent of the superb Gabba jersey.
It’s currently over 50% off in the purple colour, making it an absolute steal now for your spring riding.
Women’s Alpha Jacket
£220 – £119
The Alpha Jacket is neat in that the outer waterproof layer is detachable from the inner.
This makes it easy to vent on long climbs by just unzipping the outer, before zipping it up again for the descent.
Perfetto Long Sleeve Jersey
So named because it is perfect, apparently. While we’ve not had chance to test this one, it does have some pretty neat features.
The Italian brand has made it more waterproof as well as redesigned the tail so it should sit flatter.
