Into the storm.
The annual dance of minimizing gaps between your winter cycling cap and cozy buff usually ends in either uncomfortable overlaps at the back of your helmet or chilly, drizzly gusts of wind pummeling exposed skin once you're out on the road. Solve that problem and stay comfortably warm and dry with Castelli's Tempesta Hood, a modern balaclava that blends cycling cap style with full-coverage warmth to keep you riding all winter long.
Castelli constructs the Tempesta hood with an eVent membrane across the hat portion and down the back of the neck. This fabric is completely waterproof and doesn't release much heat, so it functions best on days when it's chilly and wet. Across the ears and front, Castelli uses its stretchy, water-resistant Nano Flex fabric that boasts the breathability to avoid clammy, frozen fabric. Fully sealed seaming throughout makes this hood completely waterproof, and its sleek design fits neatly under your helmet.
