What's Cool In Road Cycling

Castelli TEMPESTA Winner IS…

Congratulations to long time PEZ-Reader Ron Leong of San Fransisco CA, who remarked :”This is the best thing that’s happened to me today!” upon hearing the news he’d won Castelli’s Tempesta Rain Gear package of the new TEMPESTA rain jacket, 3/4 rain pants, gloves, shoe covers & NanoFlex Pro bibtights. Total retail value is $885.

The Castelli Tempesta rain kit is perfectly suited to all kinds of wet weather riding – and may actually make you want to head out on even the wettest day. That should come in handy for Ron and riding in the Bay Area.

Thanks to everyone who entered and stay tuned for our next awesome contest. – Pez.

This is the kit that Castelli claims will actually make riding in rain fun. That is a tall order, but after giving it the full review, I’ll confirm it delivers on light weight, fully repels water, and lives up to Castelli’s pro level of quality and performance.
