Description

A jersey for the elements.

A flapping wind jacket is not only annoying as the fabric beats continuously against your skin, the sound is also distracting as you strive for much needed "quiet-time" while riding. Castelli has borrowed the best properties of your favorite wind jacket and long sleeve jersey and combined them to create the Trasparente Due Wind Long Sleeve Jersey-lightweight, form-fit, and quiet.

Castelli used Windstopper X-lite Plus and its Warmer fabrics for the main panels of the Trasparente. Together these work to insulate you from chilly wind while ensuring that you'll stay warm without over-heating. The Windstopper was used in the front panels to keep wind from blowing through to your skin while the heavier Warmer fabric, placed on the back, keeps you warm. In case you are concerned about overheating or becoming drenched in your own sweat, not to worry, both materials are breathable and move moisture to the exterior of the jersey so that it is evaporated. In doing this you stay dry and your body temperature stays consistent. And, if the temperature soars mid-ride, you are able to dump heat on-the-fly, with the full-length, camlock zipper.

The fit of the Trasparente is designed for riding. The tail is slightly extended for complete coverage. Raglan sleeves and a multi-panel design mean that it features plenty of room for movement without excess fabric bunching or chafing. An elastic gripper at the wait helps to hold the jersey in place. Finishing off the Trasparente are three rear pockets and a Napoleon zip-pocket to stow your ride essentials. Reflective accents have been placed throughout the jacket for heightened visibility in low-light conditions.

The Castelli Trasparente Due Wind Long Sleeve Jersey is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Anthracite/black/yellow fluorescent, Black, Red/black/white, and White/black/cyan.

Husband LOVES it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 200 lbs
    Size Purchased: XXL

Bought this jacket for my husband who likes to ride on the California coast (Marin/SF). He likes the warmth of this jacket for cold, foggy days. It fits great, not too tight -- I bought him the XXL and he's 6'2 , 200 lbs.

what a find!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Castelli always seems to be one step ahead of what I need. Between riding in the Poconos and Southern California, I always drift from chilly early morning starts to plenty-warm mid-day finishes. But I never stop to adjust whatever kit I start the ride with- usually arm-warmers and always a wind-vest. This Trasparente Due Wind is a real marvel! It is warm enough to replace a jacket and the Windstopper front even eliminates the need for a vest! Its the perfect long-sleeve jersey.
As with most Castelli gear I buy, I only discover what's good as it goes on sale as the seasons change and inventory is discounted. This jersey is a true find and yet another well-made, well-designed piece of cycling wear from Castelli. I am a true devotee!

Just right

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought a medium and a large, because it's hard to determine sizing on Castelli sometimes. Kept the medium. I'm 5-8 and 160 lbs. I do like my jerseys to fit snug. I've only used once but found this jersey to be very comfortable. The collar is totally comfy for chilly rides - so soft and wraps just right. The windstopper front worked better than I thought.

Castelli jersey

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This was my first Castelli jersey purchase so I didn't know what to expect. I'm 5'11 about 164. I got the large. It just didn't feel right. It felt tight. It barely came to my waist and the overall impression was just, blah. I ended up returning this and getting an Assos jersey.

Great cool weather gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these mostly when the temps dip into the high 40's. They have protection against the wind but not so much to make one feel like their in a sauna! I have tried other brands such as Castrelli and felt like some one poured a cup of water onto hot stones. I whole-heartedly recommend Pearl Izumi. Their products I have learned to buy without question to quality!

Buy one!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

took this jacket out on an epic 70 mile ride yesterday. Forgot I was wearing it, so comfortable! Temps ranged from 37-43 and I only wore a summer short sleeve mesh jersey and it was perfect. The front is like a vest and you get no chill. My arms were a little brisk at first but once i warmed up in 10 min I was glad they were so thin. Climbs were great too with the arms letting you vent some heat. Unbelievable given that this is jersey thin. Ultra comfortable as well. Considering getting another. Sizing is typical Castelli. I'm 5'11" and 160lbs. I'm a medium in jerseys and a L in bibs and anything with long sleeves. This is no different large all the way. Same fit as the awesome gabba.

Great jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Best winter jersey I own. Very light, stylish, and more importantly keeps me warm with a long sleeve baselayer down 45 degs and to 35 degs w/ additional light jersey. Worth every penny!
I'm 5'10.5'', 165lbs and I got the L which is between club and loose fit.

Versatile jersey...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Winter weight at 200ish lbs, the XXL fits great with enough room for a thick winter base layer. Tested it with a Specialized thin base layer on a 2 hour 35 degree road and was a tad chilly but still worked great. Extremely satisfied with it, looks great and seems to be pretty versatile.

Cool Long Sleeve Addition

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

180lbs 6'1" Xl is good to go. The fit is not strangling, which allows you to toss a base layer underneath and wear it in even colder temps. The zipper construction is solid and it has a nice breast pocket for some lip goo and a debit card. Windstopper fabric is nice and light and keeps the chill off the chest. I will sometimes wear this in lieu of a jacket if I know it will be dry. Very comfortable and stylish thermal jersey from Castelli. Definite keeper.

Note that this picture shows a different pocket detail than pictured in the item listing. So does the one I just got from you guys. I have another TD jersey I bought from a different vendor in the all black color, which was made in Romania and looks like the picture in the item detail. This one is made in Macau and has the same welded zipper appearance. All the other details and the fit seem identical. Just worth knowing.

Hi:I bought the same jersey but in different colors,anthracite/yellow fluo.In the photo on line it showed both the full zipper and the shorter zipper as yellow.This configuration was very attractive and based on this fact I bought the jersey.When I received it in the mail one zipper was yellow and the other one was black.I contacted the retailer and I was assured a quick refund but I didn't want a refund .So my next step was to contact castelli.It's really their problem and I hope they step up to the plate and resolve what is their mess.Besides this little snafu it is a good looking jersey.Good luck!

Listen I like the price.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Less than you think is wearing the same clothes ... still completely tight to talman the bike will be well. Other price and so like the design.

Great top - maybe size up though

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am 6' and 170 pounds. I ordered a large and it fits perfectly over a tight/race cut jersey. I usually wear a Castelli medium jersey (I prefer a tight fit). So you may want to size up as a Medium with anything beneath it would probably be too tight for this item. Went for a ride up the mountains last weekend with this on - a bit hot going up the hill, of course, but I was perfectly warm during the cooler descents. One of my favorite perks of this top is the pockets - they are big and deep but not ugly or obtrusive. I fit an apple, spare tube/kite, phone, two bars in back pockets and could barely feel them on my ride. I would be comfortably wearing this item from mid 30s to about 60 (Oct through late March in Virginia, need more during Jan/Feb probably).

As with all Castelli items, looks great too!

Great Jersey!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Have had the chance to use this several times in late winter/early spring conditions. I ride near the ocean so while the temps have been 40-45, the cold, damp wind can be a factor. It is really performing well. Fights the wind as promised. Keeps me warm but doesn't bake. Not heavy and the fit is excellent. I'm 6'' 165 lbs and always buy an XL in Castelli. I can put a layer or two underneath and the fit is snug but not binding. Got the blue and it looks great!

4 5

nice as a jacket or underlayer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

This was a good score. I went with an XL to give room underneath for layering and to make sure the sleeves are long enough for me - 6'1" and 180 lbs with long arms.

This piece is great with just a jersey or base layer in the 45+ degree range. It has worked well with a wool jersey underneath for temps between 35 - 45. And under a thicker jacket for those really cold days.

The only minor gripes are that the pockets sag a bit, so heavy items can feel like they are swaying when you ride aggressively. Also could use a bit more color and reflective on the back to help getting the driver's attention.

4 5

it is ok

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i own a lot of Castelli LS jerseys/jackets all in Large however had to keep this one in XL. Body is a bit looser than i would like and neck is right on the edge of being too tight! I also own Castelli Gabba Convertible in Large which is perfect fit...if you want something similar but better go Gabba LS or Convertible hands down....Tranparante is just ok and am not sure i would buy another one....also, wind protection not running full length on arms is almost deal breaker for me ......i still give it 4 stars because it is Rosso Corsa (feel of material is nice) ....no 5 stars because neck tightness and lack of windstopper on lower half of arms....overall fit is NOT spot on like my other Castelli gear in size Large.....FYI...my specs are 6'1" 170lbs athletic lean build.....don't get me wrong, this is nice jersey but the fit is a little off.....i wear this under Gabba or soft-shell and it works brilliantly as mid or base layer for cold weather

5 5

Very Nice Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Looks like this may become my go to coupled with a light baselayer for rides from 35degrees and up. very impressed. Initially it looks to light but the wind proofing on the chest is perfect with a baselayer, easy to unzipp and dump a little heat if needed.

5 5

Probably my favorite cold weather jersey

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is one of the best jerseys I think I've ever ridden in. Castelli has an impeccable fit that is perfect for me at 5'7", 130lbs (size small). The one gripe I have is that the sleeves aren't windproof, I think it was already mentioned in a previous article, but make sure you have an LS baselayer with warm sleeves on too if it's below the high thirties. I've ridden into the low forties and aside from moderately cold arms, my upper body has remained warm and, more importantly, dry. I've also been caught out in the teens and stuffed some scavenged newspaper in (shout out to my LBS) and been just fine, thanks to the wind blocking properties of the front.

My only worry is the longevity of the zipper, which seems a little frail, but I believe that the pros of this jersey outweigh a small con.

5 5

Best piece of cold weather gear ever.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jersey is a perfect for anywhere from 40 deg to 65 deg. Great slim fit (no flapping in the wind) and keeps you comfortable on chilly days. My go to piece of clothing in for all cold weather rides.

5 5

Just buy it

Part of Castelli's "rosso corsa" top-of-the-line, this is one of the very BEST items that Castelli makes (and that is saying something). Can I give it 6 stars? Also, it looks insanely awesome in all black. Matches perfectly with Castelli's "lightness" full finger gloves in black.

Application: Long-sleeve jersey for riding in coolish weather: 45-65* (depending upon your base layer selection).

PROS: A lot of attention to detail here. The big zipper gripper works well with gloved hands. And the Gore "Windstopper X-Light" fabric works great and doesn't flap in the wind. And yes! -thank you "Lam" below- the front pocket zipper can be used for cooling.

CONS: None. Other than take care with the pocket/chest zipper. It's a little delicate.

FIT: I found that this specific item runs 1/2 size small even for Castelli tops. Anyway, size up one or two sizes -per usual with Castelli- depending upon your BMI. I'm 5'10 185, the XXL fits perfect.

5 5

Buy this!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Absolutely the best piece of cool weather gear you will ever own, if you ride in temperatures from 60 down to 25 degrees. Great high collar, wind-proof body, good zippers and pockets. Just layer as it gets colder, unzip if you get too warm. As with most Castelli buy a size larger. Get 2 for yourself and some for your riding friends. Especially on sale, I love this product.

3 5

Mostly Windproof

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The sleeves are not windproof, so expect cold arms, which make it difficult to keep hands warm. Jersey is typical of Castelli in fit, finish and style. It's a nice piece, it's just not fully windproof in front.
