The superior design of the Castelli Alpha Jacket uses new Castelli technology and fabrics to beat the cold by ensuring complete comfort so you can push your body to the extreme. Who says the winter is only for slow, easy, long rides? The Alpha winter cycling jacket doesn’t just address the cold. A blast of cold air, chilling snow, cold rain and low temperatures are all blocked out by wind- and water-resistant fabric that has taken years of research to perfect. But this Castelli winter jacket does more than just keep you warm. The combination of fabrics along with the design offer extreme comfort by allowing the right amount of ventilation. When you push your body and it heats up, air circulates between the base layer and the outer layer so your body temperature is regulated and you will neither get cold nor overheat. In the Alpha, Castelli has detached the insulation layer from the windproof layer. When you open the windproof layer, you let air in to ventilate and help evaporate moisture without getting a blast of cold air directly onto your skin. The second revolutionary aspect of the design is the comfortable aerodynamics of the Alpha cycling jacket. The stretch fabric adjusts to a wide range of body types so many people have the perfect fit in the Alpha. The new fabric at the waist stays downright flat even as you are bent over your handle bars. Second skin is a great way to describe how this cycling jacket feels while riding your bike in the winter. The new flat raw-edge construction at the wrists fits flawlessly under your cycling gloves so no cold air seeps in. The articulated construction at the collar conforms to the curves of your neck. The Silicone text gripper keeps the jacket in place while the back ventilation allows air to cool you down. The 3 rear pockets and zippered rear pocket top off what you need for the do-it-all winter cycling jacket of 2014.
