Last year's version of this jacket was called the Gabba Long Sleeve Jacket, but with Winter 2016 we're going back to reserving the Gabba name for the original Gabba short sleeve jersey/jacket. We kept hearing so many people call the long-sleeve version of the Gabba as "perfect, " so we've renamed it the Perfetto Jacket and set about improving on perfection. We've improved the water-repellent finish so it will keep you drier without affecting breathability. We've refined the fit. We've laser cut the drain holes in the pockets. And we've totally redone the splash flap on the back to make it lie flatter and fit better. The reflective logo back there keeps you visible. FEATURES Fully aero, fully breathable and fully protected Windstopper (R) X-Lite Plus fabric for lightweight total wind protection with water-repellent finish Nano Flex fabric insert under arms Storm-flap construction at back protects from wheel spray Silicone gripper on waistband to limit ride-up Full-length YKK Vislon (R) zipper with wind flap 3 rear pockets with drain mesh Weight: 386g

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.
