If the arrival of spring isn’t enough to put a smile on your face then the new Castelli Spring/Summer collection should do the trick. Bold colourways and classic designs is something Castelli has always done exceptionally well. Years of research and development with the best professional cyclists in the sport has lead to the perfect balance of comfort and performance. What do you need most from your clothing in spring and summer? Breathable materials, an aerodynamic fit and all-day-long comfort.
We’ve put together five bundles that offer all of the above and will leave your friends ogling over your new look this season.
Castelli Spring Summer Bundles
Castelli Free AR 4.1 Jersey and Volo Bib Shorts
The Free AR 4.1 has been updated and is now the ultimate all-round jersey. It’s possibly our favourite piece in the new Castelli spring summer range; combining comfort, aerodynamics and striking design. A saving of 12 watts at 40km/h is not something to be sniffed at.
This bundle includes the Volo bib-shorts, as seen in the photo above, which feature the same KISS Air chamois pad used by many of Castelli’s pro riders. At just 165g, the Volo are some of the lightest shorts on the market.

Castelli Perfetto Jersey and Lightweight Bib Tights
Summer might be on it’s way but until it’s here the Perfetto jersey and Lightweight bib tights are the ideal pieces of versatile kit for those early-season days on the bike. The Perfetto is the updated version of the Gabba Long Sleeve Jacket, with a newly refined fit for increased aerodynamics. Castelli has also managed to improve water-repellency without affecting breathability, ensuring you can continue to perform at your best even if the weather isn’t playing ball.
Like the Perfetto, the Lightweight bib-tights provide just enough warmth on those chilly mornings but offer unparalleled levels of breathability. Nano-Flex fabric on the front panel below the knee protects you from road-spray while a KISS air pad provides comfort in the saddle from the first mile of your ride to the last.

Castelli Free AR 4.1 Jersey and Free Aero Race Bib Shorts
Red is faster, right? We like the Free AR 4.1 jersey so much that we’ve added into a second kit bundle. Add in the Free Aero Race bib-shorts, cap and socks and you’ll be ticking all the style boxes. Keep an eye out for a full review of this kit bundle in the coming weeks.

Castelli Women’s Scheggia Jersey and Velocissima Bib Shorts
The Scheggia jersey is a key piece in the Castelli spring summer women’s range. It’s designed for those hot days and features stretch mesh panels on the side and back to keep you cool while you cycle. Pair the Scheggia jersey with the Velocissima bib-shorts and Rosa Corsa socks and you have the perfect outfit for those warm summer rides.
Sometimes minimalism just looks right, the bundle below is a perfect example of this. A predominantly black colourway with some classic white line and carefully positioned logos are sure to look good on any rider.

Castelli Prologo Jersey and Velocissimo Bib Shorts
The Prologo V jersey is a great option if you’re looking for a stylish jersey with a simple design and bold colours. Mesh side panels and Stratus+ fabrics will keep you cool on even the hottest of summer days. The Velocissimo men’s bib shorts may look minimalistic, but they’re jam-packed with features to improve comfort and performance. A brand new Doppio waistband, KISS Air chamois pad and flat-lock stitching all ensure an anatomical fit and exceptional comfort.
