Castelli on the cheap: Black Friday Castelli cycling kit deals
The best deals on quality Italian kit that the internet has to offer right now
Seeing the little scorpion logo of Castelli on a piece of clothing is usually a sign of some high quality kit, but unfortunately that usually means that it comes with a high price tag too.
Happily, the big internet retailers often offer some pretty hefty discounts – and we’ve certainly seen quite a few roll around in the Black Friday sales.
Here are just a few tempting Black Friday Castelli bargains which have caught our eye…
Castelli Perfetto Convertible Jacket – was £210, now £100
Designed for rides in slightly milder but damp conditions, Castelli has incorporated a Gore Windstopper 150 fabric on the front, sleeves and yoke to offer lightweight wind protection – whilst a Nano Light material at the rear sheds water and allows for breathability.

Castelli Transparente 3 FZ Windproof Long Sleeve Cycling Jersey – was £145, now £74.99
Fits like a jersey, protects like a jacket – the Castelli Transparente features Windstopper X-Lite Plus front panels, with splash resistance thrown in. It’s a warm and breathable winter layer you can work hard in whilst staying comfortable.
Castelli Gabba 3 Jersey – was £150, now £75
Castelli Gabba 3 Jersey
The Castelli Gabba is basically the best water resistant race jersey in the business. It’s lightweight, breathable, but keeps the worst of the rain off – and no brand has been able to knock it off the top step of the podium yet. Wiggle has the short sleeve (to be paired with arm warmers) version reduced to £75 in a range of colours – Surf Blue (pictured), Anthracite (grey) and Black – with some slighter lesser reductions on other colours too.
Castelli Women’s Gabba Jersey – was £140, now £70
Castelli Women’s Gabba Jersey
The iconic rain jersey in a women’s cut, down to £70 across the spectrum – Red, Laguna (light blue), Surf Blue and Black.
Castelli Undersaddle Mini saddle bag was £25 now £17.99
It might look small but the Mini bag can store most of your essentials, including tubes, CO2 and the rest of it.
Castelli Race Rain Bag was £60 now £43.49
Castelli developed this bag for its pro team riders such as Team Sky and the like. The top pockets flip open, and it has separated shoe compartments to keep things clean.
Castelli Squadra long jacket was £40 now £23.99
Winter brings with it rainy days, which means you need to start packing some protection from the bad weather.
The Castelli Squadra is waterproof, lightweight and easily stuffs into a back pocket, making it the perfect riding partner.
Castelli Belgian Bootie Oversock was £20 now £11.99
Winter has arrived – but some oversocks will keep the worst off, and these are just the ticket.
Castelli RS Superleggera short sleeve jersey was £115 now £68.99
The same tech as found on Castelli’s top Tour riding kit is also bundled in this cheaper package. It’s lightweight so it should be comfortable and cool on the skin.
Castelli Women’s climbers jersey was £70 now £48.99
This super lightweight jersey is perfect for the (hopefully) red hot conditions we’ll be experiencing next summer. Either way, it’s light, cool and comfortable – perfect.
