    Everything You Need, Nothing You Don't.

    We've always been told it's better to start off cold rides a little chilly and warm up with the theory being that you don't overheat, become a sweaty mess, and end up freezing. We prefer not to be cold on the bike ever and luckily, Castelli feels the same way. Working with their professional athletes, it created a jacket that is designed to excel in moderate intensity in cooler conditions or higher intensity in cold conditions. The Men's Velocissimo 2 Jacket utilizes Gore Windstopper X-Fast to balance excellent insulation properties, provide protection from the elements, and offer breathability for when we warm up.

    Castelli recommends the Velocissimo 2 in temperatures ranging from 43 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything warmer than 60 is a touch warm with this jacket but if it is overcast and windy, you'll most likely be fine. The front and sleeves are constructed with Gore Windstopper X-Fast fabric and repel water and block wind on your ride while still breathing quite well. Castelli's chose their soft Warmer fabric to build the back of the jacket, adding warmth while still allowing breathability to prevent overheating. The Velocissimo's form-fitting silhouette accommodates a baselayer and feels more like a long-sleeve jersey than a jacket. As we have come to expect with most of Castelli's clothing the fit is engineered for use in a riding position and the fit off the bike will feel slightly awkward.

    One of our favorite features is the flip-up Thermoflex collar. When pedaling into a headwind or descending it is great flipped up and while climbing or doing intervals it can be turned down for less coverage. Silicone gripper at the waist keep the garment from riding up and the stretchy Thermoflex side panels add additional breathability and ease of movement. Rear reflective tabs keep you visible in low-light conditions and three rear pocket provides storage for base ride calories and some money for a coffee stop.

    Another Castelli winner!

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

    Another great Castelli product. Feels like a jersey but works like a jacket. Nice snug fit. I have worn it twice: 36 degree day with light winds. Used 2 very light baselayers. 40 degree day, windy with one heavy baselayer. I bought it hoping to bridge the gap between Gabba jersey's and my heavy Castelli winter jacket, and so far looks perfect. I am 5-9 145 lbs, medium fits perfect.

    jersey like feel with insulation

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    This definitely has a race fit construction to it, fitting snug in all areas of the jacket. It has the feel like a jersey with some extra insulation. The large fits almost perfectly, with some extra slack on my forearms and wrists. In comparison to other Castelli jackets, it fits pretty true to size keeping the race fit in mind. Slightly awkward walking around a bit restricted, but you feel locked in a riding position. This would be a nice piece for some hard efforts in the mid 40’s or cruising moderately in the low 50’s. It has room for one base layer and could probably keep you warm enough during an intense ride around 40. It is plenty breathable with stretchy side panels and the ability to release heat. It has Gore Windstopper fabric in the front so it has the properties to protect from the wind. It is snug at the jackets ends (waist, sleeves, and collar) not letting any cool air in. I love the flip up collar in the event of getting chilly. It is a perfect jacket for a dry windy day in the 40-55 range. Overall, it is great for the dry, cold weather and with a slim but mobile fit.
