Maybe you’ve seen our original post about the kit here: Coffee Kit Launch!
We’ve been getting great traction on the coffee kits. I am SO excited and can’t wait to see them out in the wild. Poor Castelli will have to deal with my million check-ins. “Is it ready yet?” “How about now?” “PLEASE?” The good news is that they turn things around pretty quickly.
We’ve also gotten some questions. Here are some answers:
- Design: You may have noticed that the for sale design is slightly different than the versions the team is wearing. The team ordered “training” fit jerseys, then voted that we liked the “team” cut jerseys better. Thus, the for-sale version is Castelli’s Podio Jersey, with the coffee print wrapped around the sides instead of the grey panels on the team kits. The long-sleeved jersey is almost identical to the ones we’ve been wearing, but with long sleeves.
- Fit: The Podio design is new this year, so we haven’t worn them yet. That said, Castelli generally runs a bit smaller than other brands. I’d say the jerseys are true to size, but fit snug, and the bibs made me question if I got fat but I like my shorts compressive. I wear small bibs and small jerseys. If you know the rest of us, Leslie wears small bibs and jerseys, Julie wears extra small bibs and jerseys, and Lydia wears small bibs, extra small jerseys.
- Payment: Folks have been asking about the Castelli store, which requires a login. We promise not to spam you, but totally understand that some people would prefer not to create a login. So, ta-da, I made Paypal checkout options below. If you’re not in New England, please add a few extra bucks for shipping. Prices reflect tax.
USEFUL INFO: Here’s a link to the Castelli Custom site, which tells you all about the Podio jersey, and you can click around to see specs on all the other items. There’s also a handy dandy size chart. http://serviziocorse.castelli-cycling.com/en/products/details/new-podio-jersey/
