Castelli applied the Espresso name to a winter jacket a few years ago mostly because it sounded fast and Italian, without really thinking how a perfectly pulled Espresso is a work of art, something apparently so simple but at the same time the result of painstaking attention to the details. That's the thinking behind the Espresso jersey. Simple and clean looks on the outside but careful attention to the construction, from the new Punto fabric with exceptional softness and breathability to the front zippered pocket for your cash and credit card. We invented a new rear pocket construction that lays flat but can bellow out for high carrying capacity when needed. In fit and finish this jersey is designed to complement the Premio bibshort.
Castelli proudly produce high performance cycling apparel. Since 1876, they've been the tailor for the champions. It was Castelli's innovative mindset which sustained the earliest heroes & legends like Binda, Coppi and Bartali. Castelli cycling clothing has become legendary too for it's invention of the skinsuit, the silk jersey, pockets on jerseys, and the first LYCRAR short used in professional racing. Their innovation continues to this day with cutting edge fabrics, cuts and leading designs.
