Rain and Shine begins with the Castelli Alpha ROS Soft Shell Jacket Traditionally, cycling clothing was separated into two categories: dry-weather clothing that would quickly soak through in the rain, and rainwear that kept the rain off but was so baggy and uncomfortable that you'd never dream of wearing it in dry conditions. You had to correctly guess the weather for the day or else suffer in the wrong clothing. Castelli is out to fix this problem. With Ro S (Rain or Shine), their goal is to make garments that are best in class for dry-weather rider but that will keep you dry if it starts to rain. The Alpha Ro S jacket uses new fabrics developed alongside Gore® that are both more breathable and better at water protection, plus intelligent design details that keep the water out yet provide ample breathability and ventilation.

And it will make your riding enjoyable, rain or shine.
