Castelli clothing was the brainchild of 1970s pro cyclist Maurizio Castelli, who dedicated his life to designing high-performance racing attire but traces it's roots back to a company which began making sports clothing in 1876. Armando Castelli purchased this company in 1939 and they clothed many of the sports top stars from the 1940s onwards. Maurizio sadly died in 1995 whilst powering up the Cipressa Climb - the penultimate climb of the Milano-San Remo classic. He left behind a legacy of technologically advanced Castelli cycling gear - which you can benefit from today. Suit up in the most aerodynamic Castelli bib shorts, and enjoy what Castelli claim as an 'unfair advantage' out on the track or road. Castelli cycling continues to develop and Maurizio's drive for innovation remains in the genetics of the Italian manufacturer. Streamline your body with Castelli clothing and you can hiss through the wind like a bullet, as your ride is taken to the next level.
