Clothing tips for the cold, for performance, and for overall enjoyment on the bike

Cycling clothing has come a long way in the last few years, both in terms of comfortable construction and our understanding of how it can speed us up or slow us down.

On this podcast, Castelli team liaison Alvin Nordell joins Ben Delaney to talk about what the world's best athletes use now and when, and also what all of us cyclists can and should do for clothing in various conditions.

In warm weather, it's pretty easy: get a snug-fitting jersey and bibs. (Although there are tradeoffs for ultimate speed vs breathability.)

In cold weather, it's a bit trickier, and Alvin shares some tips from his decade-plus of experience in the clothing industry, including working with teams like Soudal—Quick-Step.
