55% off Castelli Pro Fit Light Rain Cycling Jacket
Tuesday, March 3, 2020 - 11:07
This lightweight waterproof jacket features an aero fit for those that like to go fast when the weather turns nasty.
While many of us will sigh upon pulling back the curtains to see rain lashing on the windows, some riders simply aren’t bothered.
Wet weather is tolerable with the right kit, but if going fast is your thing, then a flappy rain jacket is going to slow you down.
Castelli’s Pro Fit Light Rain Jacket is designed for the racers who need to stay aerodynamically efficient, even in the rain.
Originally, this was a garment that was limited to the Team Sky pros but we’re delighted to see it available for general sale.
Castelli has paid attention to the details with this jacket. The arms, for instance, are lined with a soft fabric that not only makes them comfortable on the skin but also makes it easy to slide your hands through what is quite a tight fit.
You get a waterproof zipper and sealed seams. There is also a choice of two colours so you can go for extra visibility or stealth.

About Merlin Cycles
Merlin Cycles was initially a mail-order business started in June 1993 by John Moss in the spare bedroom of his house in Whittle Le Woods near Chorley. A few months later the company opened a shop premises in Ormskirk, Lancashire. In 1998 Merlin Cycles moved to larger shop premises in Leyland.
Merlin Cycles spent ten years on the Leyland premises. During this time they began designing their own mountain bikes, including the Rock Lobster steel hardtails and then the Malt aluminium hardtails.
From an original concentration on the UK mountain bike market, recent years has seen the company switch to catering equally for the increasing road cycling market. In 2008 the company moved to their current shop, warehouse and office premises in Buckshaw Village, Chorley.
In 2012 Merlin Cycles began as the sole importer of Dutch-based bike company Sensa. Merlin Cycles now have an exclusive UK deal with Sensa.
