Castelli Alpha RoS - Rain or Shine engineering provides insulation and breathability for cold dry conditions with great protection during wet rides and a superb fit all built into a full specification winter cycling jacket.
The goal when Castelli started work on the Alpha Jacket was to create a winter jacket that is good as it can be for cold days. A jacket offering supreme comfort and breathability, a jacket that can adapt to changing temperatures and conditions.
Additionally, they wanted a jacket that if you did get caught in a heavy shower or the day turned for the worst, you would make it back home warm and mainly dry.
To achieve this Castelli started with the excellent Gore Windstopper 150 fabric offering a barrier against the wind and rain, then added a fleece lining with its own independent front zipper allowing you to control frontal airflow. A large covered vent in the back works alongside this to allow through-flow of air in milder drier conditions.
While not being a fully waterproof jacket the Alpha use selective seam sealing, double seams and a partially covered front zipper to keep the worst of the weather out.
- Gore® Windstopper® 150 fabric is windproof highly breathable and offers great protection from rain and spray
- Seam sealing on the shoulders with a reduced seam main body and double stitching work to keep you dry in all but the worst conditions
