The Superleggera Vest (gilet) offers cyclists a superlight gossamer thin barrier over the chest against wind and cold. Perfect for chilly mountain descents or for when the evening cools down.
Not just another gilet Castelli put a lot of thought and engineering into the high-performance Superleggera Vest. The main body fabric is Japanese-made Pertex Quantum, but without the standard coating so that you get a very small amount of air permeability that lets sweat escape, while the durable water-resistant (DWR) coating will keep light rain off.
The sides are in a highly breathable mesh to help the fit and to make this more summer weight.
On the back, Castelli has used a totally waterproof stretch panel that sheds wheel spray, in addition, the stretch works with the mesh and allows for a great close-to-body fit. The Anthracite colourway has this section in Fluo Yellow for greater visibility while all colourways feature reflective detailing front and rear.
Best of all, this vest takes up minimal space in a jersey pocket and the weight at under 80g is negligible.
