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.
At anytime the online retailers have thousands of products on sale, but the Cycling Weekly Tech Team, with their years of experience testing cycling products, know what represents a great deal. Where we’ve reviewed a product we’ll always link back to it, and if we haven’t then you can rest assured knowing we wouldn’t recommend it if we didn’t rate the brand highly.
With each product is a ‘view now’ link. By clicking on this we may receive a small amount of commission from the retailer, but this does not affect the amount you pay.

Castelli Men’s Velocissimo IV Bibshort
Got comfy in the saddle with a pair of Castelli’s best bib shorts.

Castelli Gabba 3 Men’s Short Sleeve Jersey
We’d be surprised if the Gabba’s reputation has not already reached you. The best of the best in wet weather racing gear, this jacket keeps the rain off but allows your skin to breathe. It’s short-sleeved, do you can pair it with arm warmers or pull them off if the going gets tough.
Castelli Men’s Superleggera Jacket at Competitive Cyclist
This is a packable jacket, designed to scrunch up nice and small to go into your pocket, and then provide respite from the rain in downpour. It’s wind and water resistant and offers a ‘semi-fitted’ silhouette, so it shouldn’t flat around too much.
Castelli Women’s Alpha RoS jacket at Competitive Cyclist
The Alpha RoS is an excellent winter jacket, made up of two layers – an insulating inner layer, and then over the top there’s an extra layer providing wind and water resistance. This one has scored 9/10 with Cycling Weekly testers two years in a row – the offer is on 2019s model but we still rate it.
Castelli Men’s Sanremo 4.0 Speed Suit at Competitive Cyclist
Speedsuits combine the aero benefits of a skinsuit with the comfort of a jersey and shorts. This offer is available across a range of sizes, in the ‘Silver Gary’ size (though the sub in us does wonder if that’s meant to be silver gray!). The shorts use a race ready Progetto X2 Air chamois.
