Castelli Garmin-Barracuda cycling apparel
Castelli, the official sponsor of Team Garmin-Barracuda, has used such advanced technology in designing cycling garments for the team riders that they actually ride faster in the Team Garmin jerseys and Team Garmin bibshorts when racing in a 40-km time trial than they would if they had been wearing standard cycling clothes. These cycling jerseys and cycling bib-tights are so aerodynamic because the fabrics have been engineered for that specific purpose. At the level of professional racing, clothing can be the extra advantage that you need to win a race. The Garmin-Barracuda Team has trusted Castelli with all the Team Garmin apparel for team members: Team Garmin jerseys, Team Garmin bibshorts, windstopper jerseys, winter jackets, socks, gloves, and booties. This is the team that placed Christian Vande Velde (5th) and Bradley Wiggins (4th) in both the 2008 and 2009 Tour de France events. Tour Cycling offers the same Team Garmin cycling gear worn by Team Garmin-Barracuda, including current top riders David Millar and Cameron Meyer.
The design behind Castelli’s Team Garmin cycling gear has a history. This Italian manufacturer first made cycling clothing in the 1910s for world champion Alfredo Binda and later for Fausto Coppi. Years of research to meet the demands of professional cyclists have enabled Castelli to establish strong connections with teams such as Garmin-Barracuda. These pro teams need not only comfort they also need cycling apparel that can evaporate sweat, block wind, repel rain, insulate from heat or protect from the cold. For example, Castelli’s Progetto X2 AIR seat pad in their bib-shorts has superior airflow for faster drying and is seamless so there is no chafing; the Sanremo Garmin-Barracuda Speedsuit is seamless and engineered for the time-trial position where a complete aerodynamic design can shave off seconds in a 40 km time trial; and finally, their jerseys and jackets are made with special fabrics on the front and shoulders to block wind and evaporate sweat so the rider stays dry.
Tour Cycling carries Team Garmin-Barracuda team wear as well as a full range of Castelli cycling apparel for the performance rider. Shop Team Garmin apparel now!
