High intensity rides in cold weather? Yep, this jacket keeps you warm but also vents a lot of moisture out the back thanks to Castelli's thermal Warmer fabric. Lower intensity mileage in mild conditions? Yep, just open up the zippered front vents and use a lighter base layer. The only real trade-off here is that Castelli didn't build in real water repellency other than the Gore Windstopper(R) on the front, but this is a great piece for those dry autumn and winter days.Italian StyleAt Castelli's Italian headquarters they are lucky to have some of the best cycling playgrounds in the world. Winters can be really cold with plenty of snow, but as long as riding is still safe, being outside is much more fun than suffering on the rollers. A typical cyclist would probably ride at moderate speed to prepare for next season's objectives. For some of us, winter riding also includes speed work or even intervals when preparing for a cyclocross race or an early season race next spring. The Mortirolo is the perfect jacket for those dry wintery rides. No danger of overheating due to the cleverly placed fabrics, protective Windstopper(R) and breathable panels. As spring gets closer you'll appreciate the zippered chest vents-especially when overambitious riding pals are sprinting for town signs or fighting for KOM glory. Of course the Mortirolo is also a great jacket if you're just cruising around in endurance, mile eating mode by yourself.WINDSTOPPER(R) X-FastTotal wind protection and great breathability. This fabric uses an internal brushed fleece for excellent insulation and to reduce moisture build up. It is treated with a DWR water-repellent finish to shed rain.

Castelli has a rich history as one of the iconic cycling brands, primarily specialising in high end road clothing. Founded by Vittore Gianni in 1876, initially as a tailor shop in Milan, it diversified to include cycling clothing in 1910, for riders such as Alfredo Binda. In 1935 Armando Castelli joined the company, purchasing it 4 years later. Shortly afterwards it began supplying riders such as Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. By 1975, it was rebranded to Castelli, featuring the iconic scorpion logo, and shortly afterwards produced many revolutionary clothing products, such as the first lycra cycling shorts, windproof jerseys and thermal cycling clothing. To this day, the brand is synonymous with performance cycle wear, and together with Santini, they supply some of the greatest ex and current cyclists on the planet.
