Womens Road Bike Jersey Castelli Perfetto Light. For example, unless it’s raining and in the low 40s, many of us find the Gabba too hot, so Castelli made the Perfetto Light Jersey to accommodate those of us whose engines tend to run hot or who want a lighter layer of protection for rainy days in Castelli’s recommended temperature range of 50-68 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s maybe the most versatile member of Castelli’s rainy day race jersey collection, so it’s returning this year with no major changes outside of colorways. Like its predecessor, the latest Perfetto Light includes a lighter version of Gore’s Windstopper fabric than the classic Gabba–namely, a Windstopper 150 fabric on the front panel, sleeves, and yoke.

Womens Road Bike Bib Shorts Castelli Premio 2. We’re not saying its not worth aspiring to that status, but rather that we think there are other areas of expertise that deserve just as much credit.

Womens Clothing Giordana Wool Blend Short Sleeve Base Layer. TT bikes are one example, as every 10 years the same overwrought designs resurface in a blaze of non-race-legal glory. The humble base layer is another example, and the Giordana Wool Blend Women’s Short Sleeve Base Layer proves the point with a reliance on the same material used for generations. It’s made from Mimosa fabric, a blend of three materials that all warrant the “wonder” appellation in their own right, but the headliner is obviously the time-tested merino wool.

Castelli created the Gabba and Perfetto to help cover the bases for both, but the release of the Alpha ROS Jacket takes things to the next level. With limited edition colors, this model of the Alpha ROS Jacket captures the performance we expect from Castelli, along with an exceptionally stylish and elegant aesthetic.
