VIDEO: Why the Castelli Gabba Jersey is perfect for UK cycling

VeloVixen 11.10.18

This women's specific version of the pro's favourite features identical technicalities but with a few feminine tweaks thrown in. The lightweight and wind/rain resistant design of the Gabba (and her long sleeved sister the Perfetto) is second to none - and it's fully breathable too!

The Gabba, aka the 'rain jersey' was the first of its kind, opening a whole new category in the ever-growing world of cycling.

This is the third generation Gabba jersey, maintaining its original features of the classic winning formula, but with a few new and improved tweaks for excellence. And now there are a whole range of new colours to choose from!

It's so good that famously many of the pro peloton not sponsored by Castelli started buying them out of their own pockets - and then taping over the scorpion logo!

So why should you own one? Here's Fran giving you the Gabba low-down in our very own, VeloVixen video review...


The technical stuff...

  • Gore Windstopper X-Lite Plus fabric ~ 4-way stretch | Breathable outer & inner shell keeps wind out

And don't forget the Gabba's new long-sleeved sister, the Castelli Perfetto - every bit as good as the latest Gabba, but with long sleeves for those slightly cooler or wetter days.
