The Castelli Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Pro Team Sanremo RC Speed Suit is something a bit different, offering all the comfort, moisture control and functionality of a road suit, alongside the exceptional aerodynamic performance of a TT suit.
It is engineered for aero efficiency at speeds of 30 to 55kmph, so it will give anyone a pro-level advantage. The Pro Team Sanremo RC Speed Suit has benefitted heavily from Computer Fluid Dynamic analysis of both wake flow in riding position and seam placement.
High-compression fabric on the front and sleeves, with 32% Lycra® to help support efficient muscle function, makes this a remarkably aerodynamic suit. Meanwhile, a mesh rear provides ventilation and allows moisture to escape when you’re sprinting or climbing, helping you to stay dry and warm on less intense stretches.
The suit also features 3 rear pockets with integrated transparent number pockets on the rear, for proudly displaying your race number. Additionally, they promote efficient airflow round the back.
This suit isn’t just about speed, though, being built around Castelli’s luxurious, pro-level Progetto X² Air seamless seat pad, which features a skin-care layer, two densities of foam and gel pads that work in tandem with your body and saddle, helping them to slide past each other smoothly when required and offering substantial cushioning in the right places.
Being constructed from just 5 panels of material minimises the seams in this suit, giving it a plush feel. Raw-cut edges on both the sleeves and legs add a further layer of comfort, while their stretch ensures they will stay firmly in place when you’re riding your hardest, without any need for grippers.
All in all, this suit will not only boost your riding speed but make you feel like a Quick-Step pro with the pick of the world’s best cycling kit. After all, Castelli has been working to refine the Pro Team Sanremo RC Speed Suit during a decade’s worth of WorldTours.
