Item # CST003I

Top off your winter kit.

As winter rolls in, we tend to get excited about the big, flashy items like the Alpha Jacket or the Sorpasso Bib Tights. Meanwhile, the less-readily apparent things like toe and ear protection slip under the radar right up until we realize that no amount of Windstopper fabric on our chest will keep our delicate extremities warm. That's what the Castelli Risvolto Winter Cap is for.

The Risvolto's Strada Thermo fabric literally means warm road, which is kinda the exact opposite of the circumstances you'll want it for. But whatever. The material keeps you warm, and its wicking properties are supplemented by an additional lining for even better moisture transfer. The ear flaps from which the Risvolto takes its name stow under the hat when you don't want them, and they're cut to accommodate a cycling position when you do.

The Castelli Risvolto Winter Cap is available in one size in the colors Black/white, Grey/black, and Moonlight Blue/red.

Its a hat

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: one size

Its warm and has a visor . I wear a size medium helmet and I felt that it fits good. Wore it on a ride that started in the upper 30's and ended in the mid 50's kept me warm all day. I prefer a tight fitting skull cap but this was on sale so I figured I'd try it and I'll be using it when it gets extremely cold.

Excellent Cap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this cap November 2013 and it is perfect. It fits well, it's very warm, it covers the ears, and it looks good when you wear it. I ride about 100 miles per week during the winter and its usually about freezing temperatures. Around 32F.


  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Don't ever buy this hat. I've no idea how Castelli decided this was ever a good idea and went and made a bunch of them. First of all it doesn't fit anyone's head. I've purchase plenty of caps before and wore other Castelli caps but this one doesn't even sit correctly on your head. There is nothing gripping to keep it down it is like wearing a fishing cap......... The ear flaps are just for decorations since the hat is sitting loosely on top and not actually blocking any wind. I got it out of the package and tried it on right away and started laughing. Take this hat straight back to the drawing table and try again.

Sounds like your head is just too big for this hat. It fits me just fine and did the job last winter.

Castelli Risvolto Winter Cap

The material of this cap is good but not great. However, the size is somewhat ridiculously big. My head circumference is 58, yet it still loose. Furthermore, the parts on the side of the cap should cover the whole ears since it's a winter cap, but only about 2/3 part of my ears were covered. I paid $23.96 during sale event but to return the item which would cost me $6.99 I think it might be ok for late Spring or early Fall.

It looks like castelli redesigned this hat to make it worse. I have this hat from several years ago and it's great. Nice and snug and covers the full ears. Not sure why they changed what was a good item. Too bad.
