On sale now at thecyclist.ca, Castelli’s lightweight jersey will change how you dress for cool conditions.
Cold-weather gear used to mean bulky, heavy clothes, but Castelli has designed the Gabba 2 as a fully aero, no-compromise race piece.

The sudden arrival of cold rain can turn into a crucial moment in an early season race, and being prepared for all weather with one garment can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Make layering for early spring rides easier, and ride light all year on days when you can’t be sure what the weather will do. Having a lightweight jersey that’s windproof and water-repellent such as the Gabba 2 will help you pack light while still being prepared. Castelli recommends its all-weather jersey for temperatures anywhere in the 10–18 C range..
With the jersey on sale now for $150 at thecyclist.ca, this is your chance to be prepared for spring with pro-level gear for a bargain price. This high-tech garment usually commands a retail price of $230, with the performance to match. Castelli says its jersey was such an advantage that pro riders from other teams were buying their own and covering logos. While the competitors have created imitations, Castelli’s Gabba 2 jersey still sets the bar for performance in cool conditions.
Along with Windstopper X-Lite Plus fabric with a water-repellent finish, the Gabba 2 jersey features a silicone gripper on the waistband to keep your jersey in place, and reflective trim on the three rear pockets for high visibility in low light. Those three rear pockets come with drain mesh, a smart detail for a cool-weather garment, and will let you carry any extras you might need with you on your ride. Overall garment weight is a feathery 230 g.
