The new Castelli Alpha Ultimate Insulated Women's Jacket takes the brand's hugely well reviewed Alpha RoS 2 Women's Jacket and makes it 30% lighter, stretchier and even more comfortable to wear, while retaining the same levels of warmth, breathability and protection.

This change has been brought about by altering the fabric makeup, so the jacket now has a highly flexible, waterproof yet breathable outer made from Polartec® NeoShell®, which remains separate from the airy Polartec® Alpha® insulation at the front of the jacket.

So, if you want protection from the rain on a warm day, you can zip up the outer and leave the inner open; for a bit of insulation on a dry day, you can zip the inner and leave the outer open; when you're hot and sweaty after a climb you can vent both layers; or, when it's plain horrible out, you can zip them both up. Whatever winter conditions you're facing, including temperatures down to -5?C, this jacket can cope with them.

Effectively waterproof seam taping at the shoulders, a flat lying hem that seals out the wind, and cuffs that integrate with your gloves to stop wind and water from entering at the wrists all help to make this jacket warmer than its weight would suggest, while being impressively waterproof and letting sweat escape. Ample storage in the form of three rear pockets and a zipped side pocket rounds out a weatherproof jacket that's hard to beat in terms of versatility and comfort.

  • Fully windproof, effectively waterproof in normal riding conditions
  • With a protective outer made from waterproof Polartec® NeoShell 4-way stretch fabric
  • Inner formed from warm, breathable Polartec® Alpha® insulation
  • The two layers have separate, asymmetrical, double-opening zips, so you can open one, both or neither to regulate the temperature and ventilation
  • External seam taping for near waterproof status, while no-sew bonded hem seals out wind
  • Anatomically shaped cuff integrates with gloves
  • 3 rear pockets, secure zippered side pocket
  • 360 degree visibility, thanks to reflective details on shoulders and rear pockets
  • For use at temperatures from -5-12C, 23-54F


Delivery & Returns

Fully Assembled Delivery from Dales Cycles

Dales Cycles is one of the only online cycle retailers in the Uk to offer a delivery option that truly reflects a 'fully built' bike arriving at your door. This premium delivery option is known as 'Ready to Ride' and costs £35* per bike.

'Ready to Ride' bikes come in a bespoke bike box, with a minimal packaging approach and all tools supplied, you really can be off and riding your new bike in less than a few minutes.

This unique premium delivery service eliminates the need for foam, bubble wrap and zip-ties too, so it’s also better for the planet. We recycle all this stuff, so where you can, please try and do the same. Apart from doing your bit for mother Earth, it will give you a warm, fuzzy feeling that you just can't buy!

Bikes are excluded from next day delivery to allow for assembly and quality checking by our team of professional bike builders.


Standard Delivery

In addition to our 'Ready to Ride' premium delivery service, we also offer a 'Standard Delivery' option on all bikes. Bikes ordered using this service will require some basic setup on delivery. An easy to follow setup guide is provided with all bikes.

Bikes are excluded from next day delivery to allow for assembly and quality checking by our team of professional bike builders.


Electric Bikes

Due to the extra weight of electric bikes, we are unable to ship these fully assembled. Instead, your bike will be built, configured and checked by our mechanics before being packed back into it's original box.

This method requires removing the front wheel, handlebars, pedals and seatpost, which will need to be reinstalled upon arrival.

To help with this we have a video guiding you through every step! However, if there's anything you'd like any help or advice, please contact us by calling 0141 332 2705 or by e-mailing
