Castelli Elemento 2 7x(air) Jacket

size chart
SKU: B15519
The Castelli Elemento 2 7x(air) Jacket provides full wind protection and is the most breathable jacket on the market. The Elemento is seven times more air permeable than standard cycling jackets made with Windstopper fabrics. The secret to this permeability is the Windshear inserts placed in 50% of the jacket. A fully wind- and waterproof outer layer is quilted into a fleece inner layer. Stretchy wind-resistant fabric with stitch holes has just the right amount of air permeability. Air circulates through the open fabric so rider sweat evaporates and body heat exits. The rider stays dry and will not overheat in the Elemento Air Jacket. Body warmth is maintained with the ridges created by the design. Air pockets form in the ridges and provide extra insulation without adding extra weight. The porous fibers are great for rider comfort on cold, dry days. The jacket is not recommended to be worn on rainy days. The Pave and Tempest Jackets are designed for wearing in the rain. In the Elemento the fabric’s durable water repellent (DWR) sheds light rain, but it does not handle heavy rain. Elemento is ideal for five hour base fitness rides as well as the shorter race pace winter training rides in cold, drier weather. Another feature that ensures the rider is protected is the stretchy close-to-body fit. No cold air seeps into the jacket. The high fleece collar also keeps out any cold air and the flip-up back panel adds extra warmth. Zippers on the wrists provide an easier way of getting in and out of the jacket. The raw edge wrist cuffs lie flat so long winter gloves can cover the wrists and hands. The waist also lies flat, so there is not creasing in the riding position. Zippered chest and rear pockets have plenty of storage space for keys and money. Three rear pockets are easy to access for riding food.
