It may be light but don’t let that fool you! The RoS platform is designed to keep you dry, rain or shine and it does just that!

The light may refer to the construction, but it will still perform down to temperatures that would usually see you in your deep winter jacket. This is thanks to the combination of Windstopper and Nanoflex panels. On the front, the jacket is constructed from a single layer Gore® Windstopper® 150 keeping wind and rain out whilst offering exceptional breathability. On the rear of the Jacket and back of the sleeves, Castelli has used their Nano-flex Material to boost breathability without compromising on wet weather performance.

The key feature of the RoS light is the integrated internal gilet; Strada inner gilet with 2nd zip keeps the jacket in place but allow you to unzip the outer layer, perfect for climbing or hard efforts whilst the inner layer keeps some core warmth. They carry the same taped shoulder seams, 3 rear pockets and reflective detailing to make this an excellent cross condition jacket.

The RoS light is perfect for spring or autumn rides here it will start off cold but when riding or climbing you need shed some heat without having to compromise on protection if the weather turns.

Key Product Features

  • Lightweight double-layer jacket with significant rain protection Gore® Windstopper® 150 front and sleeves.
  • Nano Flex Xtra Dry back for the most significant nonmembrane water protection available.
  • Prosecco Strada inner liner with 2nd front zip.
  • Waterproof YKK® Vislon® zipper.
  • An articulated collar that fits better whether you’re standing or riding.
  • Front zippered pocket.
  • 3 rear pockets with reflective laser-cut drain holes.
  • Raw-edge waist lies flat and moves with you.
  • Advanced patterning makes for excellent close-to-body fit.
  • Castelli silicone text gripper at waist keeps the jacket from riding up.

    Buyers Guide

    Cycling Jacket

    A winter essential. Here in the UK we can’t make it through the winter without some derivative of the jacket. Whether it’s a fleece backed Windstopper, Gabba Jersey or a taped seams waterproof. We can’t make it through the winter without one of these items; here is what to look out for at Scotby Cycles.

    Windstopper Jacket/Jersey

    Castelli took the market by storm with the Gabba Jersey, for 2017 the Perfetto is the latest addition and features a Gore® Windstopper® X-Lite Plus fabric giving you protection from the wind and rain whilst still having excellent breathability. Dubbed as the perfect race garment, the Perfetto offers excellent versatility ‘perfect’ for changeable weather. The lack of insulation could impact you when the mercury plummets.

    Insulator Jacket

    The perfect deep winter companion. Match with a technical baselayer and they can see you well past the freezing point. Designed to insulate you from the elements, a deep winter softshell jacket comprises of a windstopper membrane to prevent wind penetrating your core while a fleeced back finish creates pockets of warm air to help insulate you and keep your warm.

    Often more bulky that lightweight windstopper items, jackets such as the ASSOS ij.tiBuru.4 and the milleJacket take your winter riding to the next level.

    We recommend to size up in most models; consider what baselayers you will wear in conjunction with the jacket.

    Waterproof Shell Jacket

    Constructed in a range of materials from GoreTex to Endura’s Exoshell40 fabric, they all have one thing in common, they are mostly 3 layer membranes.

    Layer 1. Inner liner is highly permeable to allow your moisture to diffuse out.

    Layer 2. Breathable waterproof membrane

    Layer 3. Outer face fabric helps improve durability.

    The result is a material that is highly breathable whilst still offering a lightweight feel and excellent waterproof qualities. Perfect to use as an outer layer on wet days or to roll up and store in a pocket. In the UK a good, dependable waterproof can make the difference between a good and a bad ride. Jackets such as the Endura FS260-pro SL and the ASSOS rS.sturmPrinz waterproof jackets are designed with breathability and comfort in mind using more breathable and stretch panels on the side to maximise comfort.

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.


    Thanks for choosing his item ...
