The Castelli Hors Categorie Jersey takes its name from the Tour stages that are deemed harder than Category 1 climbs and are considered “beyond categorisation”. Whether you’re scaling the Galibier or putting the miles in closer to home the Hors Categorie Jersey is for the hardest and longest days in the saddle.
Made from Velocity Rev3 fabric, the Hors Categorie Jersey is aero and stretchy. Based off the material used for Castelli’s top-of-the-line Aero Race Jersey, the fabric is a polyester blend that has around 20% more body for all round performance and to help support the pockets.
With the Hors Categorie Jersey, Castelli has prioritised practicality and utility over being aerodynamic. This allows the pockets to be slightly larger than Castelli’s pro race jerseys, allowing you to stuff them with enough supplies to keep you riding all day. A zipped key pocket is also on the rear of the jersey allowing you to stow valuables.
The jersey has a temperature comfort range of up to 32˚C. A 3D mesh through the back, along with mesh side panels, aid breathability and moisture management. Long cut sleeves offer a bit more protection from the sun and, if the weather calls for it, will prevent that niggling gap between your arm warmer and sleeve.
