New name but the performance you love, the Gabba becomes Perfetto because that is what these garments are - perfect! This convertible jacket offers so much adaptability in one garment you really could use it all year round. Top Features of the Castelli Perfetto Convertible Jacket Fully aero, fully breathable and fully protected Gore (R) Windstopper (R) X-Lite Plus fabric for lightweight total wind protection with water-repellent finish Remove the sleeves for a short-sleeved Perfetto Jersey Nano Flex fabric insert under arms Storm-flap construction with reflective logo at back protects from wheel spray Silicone gripper at waist prevents ride-up Full-length YKK (R) Vislon zipper with wind flap 3 rear pockets with laser-cut drain holes 475g (size L) Temperature Range: +6 degrees - +18 degrees C Fit: Regular Windproof: Yes High Visibility: No Road: Yes New Name - Improved Performance - Perfetto, For All Conditions The famous Gabba started out as a request from pro riders who wanted a short-sleeve rain jacket for racing in the rain. Castelli initially thought it would be such a hopelessly niche product that they'd never sell any, but it was made because their pro riders needed it. However, it turned out that the Gabba revolutionised the way pro riders dress for wet conditions, and now cyclists everywhere have found a better way to dress for cool conditions, whether dry or wet. Along the way Castelli added a long-sleeve version of the Gabba, and then a vest, a lighter-weight version and even one with removable sleeves. It was starting to become a bit confusing, but the one constant was that everyone was using the same word to describe these products: perfect. Or in Italian, "perfetto." Castelli have chosen to rename this family of products the Perfetto family, and the Gabba name will be reserved for the original short-sleeve jacket for racing in the rain.Perfection - Refined Castelli have made numerous improvements, including a stronger DWR finish to help rain run off the jacket and keep you drier. They've also further refined the fit and the drainage of the back pocket. There's a Perfetto product for every condition, from the lightweight wind vest to the Perfetto Convertible Jacket that can be worn in extreme cold conditions when you layer a thermal jersey underneath. You can count on every Perfetto product performing exceptionally well in dry conditions and providing significant protection from wet conditions. All while staying very aerodynamic and with the fit and cut that changed how we all dress for the cold.WINDSTOPPER X-LITEThe highly stretchable Windstopper (R) X-Lite fabric moves naturally with your body and doesn't restrict movement. It also delivers unprecedented performance, with 100% wind protection, and up to ten times greater breathability compared to other windproof fabrics

Castelli Jackets

Castelli has a rich history as one of the iconic cycling brands, primarily specialising in high end road clothing. Founded by Vittore Gianni in 1876, initially as a tailor shop in Milan, it diversified to include cycling clothing in 1910, for riders such as Alfredo Binda. In 1935 Armando Castelli joined the company, purchasing it 4 years later. Shortly afterwards it began supplying riders such as Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. By 1975, it was rebranded to Castelli, featuring the iconic scorpion logo, and shortly afterwards produced many revolutionary clothing products, such as the first lycra cycling shorts, windproof jerseys and thermal cycling clothing. To this day, the brand is synonymous with performance cycle wear, and together with Santini, they supply some of the greatest ex and current cyclists on the planet. If you wish to view more by this classic Italian manufacturer, please view my current Castelli clothing deals.

This product is for sale at Chain Reaction Cycles, one of the largest online cycle shops in the world. Opening in 1985, and starting off as a small independent bike shop in Ballynure, it moved to Ballyclare in 1989 and is now based in Doagh (all in Northern Ireland). In addition to regular local service, Chain Reaction Cycles (or CRC as it is often abbreviated to) established itself as a mail order business via advertisements in bicycle magazines; this continued until 1999 where it launched it's now famous website at ChainReactionCycles.com. Their blue themed website stocks around 90,000 products ranging from MTB & Road cycling equipment, to triathlon, BMX and running kit. As per several other leading bike shops, Chain Reaction produce their own product ranges, under brands such as Brand X. To this day CRC sponsor many cycling events, and due to the company's size and efficiency are able to offer very competitive pricing on cycle equipment. In 2016 Wiggle acquired Chain Reaction Cycles, although the two websites continue to operate independently of each other, both with their own distinctive branding and product ranges.
