Product Details

Rain and Shine begins with the Castelli Alpha ROS Soft Shell Jacket.
From the beginning, 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 Rain or Shine, their goal is to make garments that are absolutely best in class for dry-weather rider but that will keep you dry if it starts to rain. Castelli are developing new fabrics that are both more breathable and better at water protection, and they're inventing intelligent design details that keep the water out yet provide ample breathability and ventilation.

Considering that most of these garments will still be used 90% of the time in dry condition, Castelli are not compromising on comfort or breathability. If you wear these only on dry days you'll still have the best Castelli product available - plus the peace of mind that if you do get caught in the rain, you'll be covered. When they talk about rain protection, though, they're concentrating on functional rainproofing to keep you warm and comfortable. Castelli avoid the obsessively overbuilt construction that compromises dry-weather performance. To achieve the best overall performance they don't unnecessarily tape every single seam and they don't use waterproof membranes where they're not needed. Instead, they go out and test these garments under real-world rain ride conditions until they're satisfied that they're the best-performing garments available.
