Castelli VG 5 Pocket Trousers
Castelli makes cycling kit to keep you looking and feeling good on the bike, and that ethos extends to these VG 5 Pocket Pants.
A Garment wash gives them a heritage look while a water-repellent treatment fends off splashes and stains. You love the bike but you're not on it 24/7. For those times between bike rides why not keep with the Castelli comfort and performance.
The VG 5 Pocket Trousers are wonderfully comfortable when you're relaxing. However, if you do take a gentle spin to a coffee shop to meet friends then the articulated knees make pedalling easy, while the reflective tape inside keeps you visible if you're out pedalling after dark. Castelli VG Atelier Castelli started life in 1876 as a Milan based tailor shop called Vittore Gianni.
It's from that DNA that the Castelli off-the-bike wear was created. It's personified by the craftsmanship, obsession, tech and style from Vittore Gianni's atelier. Wear it between bike sessions to look and feel good and enjoy the fine fabrics and artisan techniques used within every piece.
DWR treatment protects from splashes or stains. Garment washed for that lived-in look. Articulated knee.
Reflective tape inside cuff - turn up for extra visibility. Vintage-jersey-inspired rear pocket treatment. Discreet small TPR logo.
Woven VG Atelier label. 97% Cotton, 3% Elastane (Spandex).

Trousers (or as the Americans refer to them, Pants) tend to be used for commuting, casual cycling or downhill mountain biking, and aren't traditionally used for longer rides. Not to be confused with slim fitting cycling tights, trousers are baggier, offering a somewhat more relaxed fit, and less aerodynamic. Specialist trousers can include handy features such as waterproofing, as well as basic knee protection in the event of a crash. Whilst not as plentiful as my bib tights page, I still occasionally find trouser deals, so hopefully there'll be a pair to suit your needs.

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.
