Last week professional cycling team Garmin-Cervelo announced the arrival of a new title sponsor, Barracuda Networks, and subsequent name change to Team Garmin-Barracuda for the 2012 cycling season.

Debuting the new team kit at the popular early-season Tour Down Under (currently underway), held in 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evan's home country of Australia, the attractive new kit manufactured by Castelli is already drawing a significant amount of attention. An Italian legend with a history of innovation, Castelli has been outfitting cyclists for over 70 years, from historical Tour de France legends Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi to current pros such as David Zabriskie, Tyler Farrar and Christian Vande Velde at the top of their game.

In order to better understand what riders want, Castelli works with several teams and professionals to create some of the highest quality cycling apparel available. Technologically innovative fabrics, advanced cuts and superior designs put Castelli apparel at the front of the pack and a favorite amongst pro cyclists and everyday riders alike. Partners since their Cervelo Test Team days, Castelli focuses on developing new garments and materials and soliciting direct feedback from pro riders before releasing the finished product to its customers. Indeed, the innovative Progetto X2 seat pad, constructed with 10 separate components and 12 different phases in the manufacturing process, was in development for nearly 3 years and logged more than 500,000 kilometers of testing before it reached the market in 2010.

"Just wanted to give you some feedback about the shorts ...... for me, they are perfect!" - Heinrich Haussler, Cervelo Test Team (now Garmin-Barracuda), enthuses when reviewing Castelli's Body Paint Bib Shorts.  The new and improved Body Paint 2.0 bibs, scheduled to be released this spring, will further improve on Castelli's excellence.
