Castelli Perfetto RoS convertible jacket:
$269.99 $202.49 at Competitive Cyclist
Save 25%. Fans of Castelli's Perfetto RoS jacket (which we are!) will tell you that it's hard to beat when you need protection against the cold and the wet but still require breathability for those high-intensity efforts. But if you're interested in getting a little more 'bang for your buck' then the convertible option should appeal. It's got all the tech and details that make the original Perfetto so great: Gore Infinium fabrics, taped seams, two deep pockets and a Gabba-esque drop tail for added protection against wheel spray. But now, thanks to the removable sleeves, it can double up as a Spring jersey. Like many of Castelli's high-end offerings it doesn't come cheap but this deal makes it far more affordable and a practical choice that will handle three seasons of riding.

In short this means they'll block out the wind and rain as well creating a comfy, insulated fit. They extend well up the calf for increased protection while the rear zip makes them easy to get on and off. The sole and lower panels are made from durable material too, an area which is often a weak link. Suitable for two and three-bolt cleats, they're currently available in three colours including the highly visible orange and yellow fluro options. The Intenso UL shoecovers are a great choice even at full price, but saving $20 sweetens the deal even more.

It does this thanks to a combination of an inner layer of insulation and an outer made from Gore-Tex Infinium, which forms a trusted barrier against the wind and the rain. Other winter-friendly details include the double layer cuffs that really form a seal against the elements as well as taped seams and a water-resistant zip. But the Alpha RoS 2 also makes sure you don't overheat when working hard thanks to rear vents. Loaded with detail the Alpha RoS 2 doesn't come cheap, making the sales the perfect time to invest in this high-end piece of kit.

The Sorpasso Ros tights feature anatomically mapped panels which allow for unrestricted movement, especially around the knees and hips where other bibs can feel restrictive. They feature the brand's tried-and-tested nanoflex technology, which means they'll do a good job of keep you dry and warm. There's also the Progetto X2 air pad that's well-regarded for its comfort over long distances. And because these are a true winter bib they feature reflective panels on the calf zips to help you stay seen in low light.

It features a long, adjustable cuff made from Gore-Tex Infinium fabric that allows you to create a seal to keep the cold out and the heat in.

I've been wearing the gloves for a while now and they really do keep your hands toasty while still allowing you to access and operate the levers with confidence. In short, its a glove that should last several winters and a steal with 25% off.
Castelli Beta RoS jacket:
