Product description

Season : Autumn Winter 17
Code : CS17085CeramicBLU
Weight : 0.5KG

There was a time when I simply couldn't understand why the short sleeved, water-resistant jersey existed. However, having been caught out several times I found myself scolding my lack of possession of such an item when it was warm but wet. Fortunately, the highly successful and now somewhat imitated Gabba Short sleeve was to hand. After several years building up a dedicated following by those in the know (not least the Pros who are often seen reaching for one - team issue or not) there has come a point, brought about it's more widely adopted use, where the Gabba short sleeve is just that little bit too much. Never one to rest, and at the request of those most discerning pro riders, Castelli have come up with the Perfetto Light 2 Short Sleeve Jersey.

The Perfetto Light 2 builds upon the Gabba by addressing the only real complaint that, on occasion, the Gabba could be a little heavy. Those that have worn the Gabba when the temperature has crept up or the intensity ramped, may well have experienced overheating to some degree. The Perfetto addresses this issue with a new construction and a refinement of the materials used.

A lightweight, more breathable option, the Perfetto Light has the same weather-resistant qualities and aerodynamic fit that has helped the Gabba's rise. It has the same cut and combines a lightweight windproof and water-resistant Windstopper® 150 material on the front, shoulders and sleeves - a material 25% lighter than that used in the Gabba. Additionally, and in order to improve both the overall weight and breathability of the jersey, the Perfetto employs a water-resistant Nano Light Pro material on the back panel. This is an unbrushed version of the Nano Flex fabric used in the company's water resitant tights and is highly water repellent and stretchy but has no membrane to inhibit air exchange. By tightly weaving the material, the Perfetto is able to block most of the air-flow through the surface, keeping the chill off but at the same time it is open enough to prevent the moisture build-up that you might experience with the Gabba during intense efforts or when the temperature rises.

The ultimate multi-season piece, the Perfetto Light 2 is ideal for Spring and Autumn rides where the weather can't make up its mind and where full wind-proofing would likely have you cooking in your clothing. Packing easily into a jersey pocket, there's nothing to stop you wearing a normal short sleeve jersey underneath if the temperature is likely to spike during your ride and while it is not as 'hardcore' as the Gabba, for most of us the Perfetto will cover our clothing decisions when the weather is uncertain. Combined with Nano Flex arm warmers, it is a solid option in changeable conditions.

3 rear pockets and the usual reflective trim keep your essentials stowed and enhance your visibility when the light fades.
