Castelli Alpha Wind Jersey - Long-Sleeve - Men's

After being inspired by its warm, adaptable Alpha jacket, Castelli set out to create an even more minimal layer for winter riding that protected like a jacket and fit like a jersey. Sure, the jacket fits impeccably and protects against winter's harshest conditions without feeling like a mountaineering parka, but the brand knew it could pare the Alpha down even more to further serve its passion for minimalism.

Castelli paid close attention to constructing the articulated collar to fit comfortably on and off the bike, and it included the same flat, raw-edge waist and wrists as the Alpha jacket that m...

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
