Description

Description

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

Technology

Double-layer construction for optimal performance
In designing this winter jacket, Castelli decided to create a double layer of fabric to offer you the best possible performance. The outer layer is made of a windproof material to protect you from cold and severe winter winds. In similar jackets with such an outer windproof layer, you often see a decrease in breathability. And so Castelli has added a second layer! This inner layer has a snug fit around your body, provides good insulation and keeps your body comfortably warm. The wind is blocked from the outside, but the jacket can be zipped open so that any excess heat can escape via the outer layer. This is ideal for a long climb or a high-intensity interval training, for example. Simply unzip the windproof layer to increase ventilation temporarily, while the inner insulation layer retains its snug fit around your body. We have never seen such a warm cycling jacket with such good breathability!

Attention to detail
Every detail of the Castelli Alpha RoS 2 winter jacket has been designed with a focus on your comfort during cycling. The high neck section is stretchy and shaped to follow your movements regardless of whether you're standing or sitting. At the waist there is a stretchable layer with a silicon edge to prevent the jacket climbing up and the wind getting to you. Even at the wrists there is a double layer of fabric for optimal comfort; the tight inner layer fits directly around the wrists and keeps the cold out, while the outer layer is slightly wider so that your gloves fit underneath.

Good water-repellent properties
While this jacket has been designed for cycling in dry conditions, its water-repellent properties are so good we felt we had to mention them. The Gore-Tex Infinium Windstopper material keeps out water better than you might expect, so the odd rain shower on the way will not cause any problems. In addition, there are sealed seams in crucial areas such as the shoulders.

All in all, the Alpha RoS 2 winter jacket for men is 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

Fantastich Jack

- Jos 11 January 2022

Nu inmiddels al een paar honderd km gefietst met dit jack, samen met het ondershirt van Castelli. En geen seconde spijt gehad van deze aankopen. Niet goedkoop, maar het geld meer dan waard. Ondershirt en Jack aan en gaan, ideaal. Lekker warm en waterdicht. Al genoeg regen over me heen gehad en kurkdroog gebleven. Dit jack had ik veel eerder moeten aanschaffen. Top!!

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

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.
