About the Castelli Alpha Ros Light JacketFitting somewhere on the spectrum between a jacket and your warmest jersey, Castelli’s most technical light jacket gets a significant performance upgrade this year. ROS stands for Rain or Shine. It’s a label Castelli give their most advanced products that excel in both dry and wet conditions. For dry conditions, you’re looking for comfort along with breathability to prevent you from getting wet and chilled from the inside. But with wet-weather clothing, you’re looking for protection that will help you stay warm by keeping the rain out and letting sweat escape. The Castelli Alpha ROS light jacket ticks both of those boxes. Both the front and back materials are brand new this season and represent a significant step forward in rain protection. These fabrics are used with reduced seaming, and seam sealing where necessary. Castelli call this "functional waterproofing" because while they don’t guarantee that no drop will ever enter the jacket, they can promise you that this is their best effort to keep you warm and dry in the widest range of conditions.

Through the years, Vittore Gianni clothed AC Milan, Juventus and the Milan Ballet. The first cycling clothing was made in the 1910’s for the world champion and five-time Giro champion Alfredo Binda. Castelli innovated the first aerodynamic Lycra shorts in 1977 which were used in racing and for public sales. Castelli’s single-minded mission is to make the most innovative clothing for the cyclist seeking maximum performance. Over the past decade, Castelli have led essentially every performance innovation in cycling clothing.
