Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons

  • Due to the double layer, this jacket is windproof, water repellent and gives good insulation.
  • Suitable for winter days with temperatures dropping to -5 degrees.
  • The outer windproof layer can be easily unzipped for extra ventilation.
  • Because the ower insulating layer is close to the skin, this jacket will keep you nice and warm.
  • This jacket has three back pockets and a small zipped pocket.
  • Above freezing point, this jacket quickly becomes too warm.
  • Despite the good water-repellent layer, you will get wet in a heavy downpour.

Description

Description

The Castelli Alpha RoS 2 winter cycling jacket is Castelli's flagship winter apparel, suitable for temperatures dropping to -5 degrees.

Technology

Double-layer construction for optimum performance
With this winter jacket, we chose to make a double layer to give you the best performance. The outer layer is made of windproof material to protect you from the cold and harsh winter winds. What you often see is that because of such an outer windproof layer, the breathability quickly decreases. This is why Castelli added a second layer! The inner layer fits nicely around the body and provides good insulation and keeps your body comfortably warm. The wind is blocked from outside, but the jacket can be zipped open so that any excess heat can still escape through the outer layer. Ideal for a long climb or an intensive interval training. You can easily unzip the windproof layer to provide temporary ventilation, while the inner insulation layer stays neatly around your body. We have never seen such a warm cycling jacket with such good breathability.

Access to detail
The Castelli Alpha RoS 2 winter jacket has been designed with your comfort in mind. The high neckline is stretchy and shaped to follow your movements, whether you're standing or sitting. At the waist there is a stretchable layer with a silicon edge, so that the jacket can't creep up and it also keeps the wind out completely. Even at the wrists there is a double layer for optimal comfort. A tight lower layer fits directly around the wrists and keeps out the cold. The outer layer at the wrists is somewhat wider so that your gloves fit exactly under it.

Good water-repellent properties
While this jacket is designed for riding in dry conditions, it has such good water repellency that we want to mention it. The use of Gore-Tex Infinium Windstopper material keeps out water better than you'd expect, so a little rain on the way is no problem at all. In addition, sealed seams are used in crucial areas such as the shoulders.

In short, the Castelli Alpha RoS 2 winter jacket for men can be said to be the most versatile performance jacket for cold weather training that Castelli has ever made.

Best winter jacket i have

- Declan 28 November 2020

Have this jacket for a few weeks now, went out in 10 degrees C the first day and almost melted, have since been out in 4 degrees, far more suitable for this jacket. I'm a medium in a t-shirt went for the large which was perfect. Only one gripe, with big gloves I tend to stuff things into the pockets, have already burst a a stuck in one of the pockets

Meer dan waar voor z’n geld!

- Gilbert 8 March 2021

Ik kocht de jas in een hele koude periode! Toen was hij perfect, maar straf hem nu ook met enkel een kort (thermo)shirtje eronder

Pros & Cons

Fijne zakken en goede ‘stopper’ onderaan bij rug
Heerlijk bij kou (
Perfecte pasvorm, sluit goed aan.
Super kwaliteit

Fijn Jack voor in de winter

- Thomas 7 January 2021

Lang zitten denken of ik zoveel geld uit wilde geven voor een fietsjack maar dat geld is deze jas zeker waard. Ben nogal een koukleum maar zelfs bij temperaturen rond het vriespunt heb ik geen last van de kou. En de pasvorm is voor mij ideaal.

Pros & Cons

Goede pasvorm
Heerlijk warm

Veste top avec le look en prime

- David 3 January 2021

J'avais acheté la raddoppia 2 mais étant un peu frileux lorsque la température est d'environ 5 degrés, je sentais un peu le vent avec la raddoppia2. Par conséquent j'ai décidé d'acheter l'alpha ros2. Quand je l'ai reçue et que j'ai vu la finesse du tissu j'étais un peu dubitatif sur la possibilité de rouler par 0 degrés et température négative. Mais je dois avouer que j'ai maintenant fait plusieurs sorties par des températures entre -1 et 3 degrés et la veste est vraiment top ! Je la met chaque fois uniquement avec un sous-vêtement thermique et c'est parfait, je ne sens ni le vent ni le froid. La veste garde aussi un degré de respirabilité suffisante de telle sorte qu'on pas trop chaud après avoir roulé un certain temps. De plus esthétiquement la veste a vraiment un chouette look. Enfin les détails sont bien pensés notamment les poignets pour enfiler les gants. J'ai pris la taille Medium car je mesure 1m70 pour 61kg et c'est nickel.

Goed ademende warm jack

- Gerard 30 November 2020

Gisteren lange (matig intensieve) toertocht van 8 uur gemaakt bij droog weer, temperatuur rond vriespunt en koude oostenwind. Met 2 base layers bleef ik redelijk droog vergeleken met m’n oude jack waarin ik al snel een kletsnatte rug had. Niet echt koud gehad tijdens inspanning. Pasvorm ook voor mijn postuur (2m/97kg) prima. Fijne details als anti-slip aan onderrand waardoor jack niet omhoog kruipt, maar ook de dubbele mouwopening met inkeping: strakke binnenlaag gaat in handschoen, buitenlaag gaat makkelijk óver de handschoen.
