Castelli, making sports clothing since 1876.
World leaders in handmade Italian cycling apparel, Castelli are one of cycling's great innovators, pioneering the use of silk for skinsuits for Fausto Coppi in 1948.
In 1977, Castelli was the first to recognise the potential of Lycra for cycling clothing, making Lycra shorts for pro riders.
In the 1980's Castelli were the first to make coloured cycling shorts at a time when only black shorts were allowed. Castelli made the first windproof jersey, worn by Bernard Hinault in the 1983 Fleche Wallone and the first thermal cycling apparel for Francesco Moser in the 1984 Paris-Roubaix.
In 1996, Castelli introduced the first fully aerodynamic skinsuit worn by Paola Pezzo at the Atlanta Olympics. In the same year introduced the first ever range of women's cycling clothing.
Castelli's innovations continued in the 1990's with wicking fabrics, innovative chamois pad design and revolutionised shorts again with their Giro legband grip.
In the 21st Century, Castelli continue to develop new products and bring new technologies to cycling including nano materials that are water-repellent without limiting breathability and the first ever road racing skinsuit and the Bodypaint speedsuit.
The Bicycle Emporium is proud to be a Castelli stockist.
