The little scorpion on the back of Castelli cycling clothing has always been a badge of honour for cyclists, representing the best premium Italian kit, and it usually has the price tag to match. However, it doesn’t always have to cost the earth.
You can still get summer kit at discounted prices and now’s a great time to stock up on Castelli’s technical clothing for wetter, colder rides to come. From our extensive testing of Castelli products we’d also recommend going up one size as Italian kit can be quite small.
