Castelli have always innovated taking inspiration from anywhere that might provide an edge - as such the Vela Gilet takes Dyneema® yarns as used in high performance sails to make an ultra-light, windproof, waterproof and virtually indestructable gil
The incredible light weight and compactibility of the Vela Vest comes from leading sail making fabric from
America’s Cup racing. This wind- and waterproof fabric uses Dyneema® yarns for near-bulletproof strength and durability. You’ve seen Dyneema® as the white core yarns in rock-climbing ropes, and it’s also used in bulletproof vests. This fabric comes straight from sailing, where ultralight weight and extreme tensile strength come together in a sport where cost doesn’t matter. Only winning matters. Castelli finish off the vest with water-repellent DWR-coated 50-gram stretch woven inserts for breathability. You get front wind protection and significant water protection in a piece that folds down to almost nothing when you stash it in your pocket.
Castelli proudly produce high performance cycling apparel. Since 1876, they've been the tailor for the champions. It was their innovative mindset which brought the earliest heroes & legends like Binda, Coppi and Bartali. Castelli cycle clothing became legendary too inventing the skinsuit, the silk jersey, pockets on jerseys, and the first LYCRA® short used in professional racing.
