Castelli Spring Summer 2021: Women’s
By Stan Portus – 8 February 2021
The Castelli SS21 Women’s collection sees updates to some of the Italian brand’s best loved kit, as well as brand new jersey designs and shorts using the latest fabric technology. Designed to make your riding faster, more fun, and more comfortable.
The Castelli Spring Summer 2021 collection was largely developed through the Spring of 2020. At the time more important things than cycling were going on. No group rides, no races, little bike maintenance and no coffee stops.
The smart bike became an important factor in many cyclist’s lives, but the dream of open roads persisted.
Castelli built this collection with that dream in mind, creating a collection that majors on making your riding faster, more fun, and more comfortable. Take a look at some of top products in the new collection below and get ready for warmer weather.
Castelli Gradient Jersey
The women’s specific Gradient Jersey uses Castelli’s long-distance refined Squadra jersey model as its base and adds a clean, solid-colour design with bright gradient fades. The main body of the jersey is made from Castelli’s ProSecco Micromesh fabric to help wick moisture away and keep you dry, while the side panels are made from mesh for breathability.
Pair with the Castelli Gradient Cap and Castelli Gradient Socks.
Castelli Promessa Jacquard Jersey
The Castelli Promessa Jersey brings a totally new look to your cycling wardrobe. The short sleeve jersey uses a jacquard-knit fabric that allows Castelli to weave the design into the fabric as opposed to printing it on, while still delivering the fit, stretch, moisture management and comfort that characterises Castelli’s tops. The fabric has a lateral 2-way stretch helping the jersey move with you while also holding the pockets high even when loaded.
Climber's 2.0 Women's Jersey
The Castelli Climber’s 2.0 Women’s Jersey is designed for scaling the highest mountains and for riding in the hottest conditions.
The jersey is made from Flusso 3D fabric on the front and sleeves. This is an open design fabric that is incredibly lightweight meaning heat and moisture dissipate in an instant. Where there is heat there is sun, so Castelli has made the back of the jersey from StradaPro 3D fabric which blocks more than 90% of UV rays.
Pro Mesh Women's Sleeveless Base Layer
Socks, socks, socks. From block colours to sky high cuffs, Castelli’s SS21 collection sports a myriad of options matching up with its jersey collections and with options specifically designed to help beat the heat.
Aria Women's Vest
The Aria Vest completely blocks wind on the front while allowing breathability on the back, making it perfect for long descents in the mountains or early starts closer to home. The rear panel’s stretch material means that the vest sits tight to the body without being restrictive. The vest packs into its own rear pocket and at 60g takes up hardly any room in a jersey pocket.
Pioggerella Shoe Covers
Booties aren’t just for winter. Coming through spring into summer can still see some foul weather and keeping your feet dry and your shoes clean is always a good idea. The Castelli Pioggerella Shoe Covers are non-insulated, waterproof overshoes made from a PU-coated waterproof stretch fabric making them ideal for warmer conditions.
Picking the best smart bike is tough – with so many features and options, it’s hard to know where to start. Here’s what to look for to stay fit all winter.
