Two organizations with a long history of innovation and domination in the pro cycling peloton join forces to turn innovation into more results. The three-year deal (2022-2024) will see Castelli provide its full arsenal of racing and training clothing to the WorldTour’s best team, Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team.
Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team has dominated the pro cycling scene since the team’s debut in 2003 and has topped world cycling’s win rankings every year since 2012. Castelli has consistently been at the forefront of technical progression in cycling clothing for racing and training in extreme conditions as well as pioneering aerodynamics for road racing.
Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl will be the only WorldTour team wearing clothing by Castelli, the brand that boasts more than 145 years of history and is noted as being the first to bring performance-enhancing innovations to pro cycling such as Lycra shorts, aero jerseys, the most advanced TT and road suits, and the iconic Gabba jacket that has become indispensable for every pro cyclist. Castelli will be bringing its expertise in aerodynamics for road races, time trials, and track racing. The TT specialists have already been fitted with custom suits and will be testing in the wind tunnel in January to refine the performance further. For Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl, the top sprinting team in the pro peloton, Castelli is creating a race suit specifically for the high speeds of mass sprints.
The partnership will already see a handful of innovative performance products at the beginning of the season, including the brand-new Free Aero RC Bibshort; the BTW and Superleggera Speed Suits; and the Idro Pro 3, Gabba RoS, and Perfetto RoS jackets.
Every innovative product created with Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl will eventually trickle down into the standard Castelli collection and the Servizio Corse custom team wear program.
