When it comes to racing and training in the cold and wet the Gabba has always excelled but Castelli, as always, have made improvements and enhanced the performance further. Working with Gore they developed a unique GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ fabric; this fleece-backed material is used to the front and gives a significant boost to rain protection while doing a brilliant job of keeping in body heat. To the back, GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ 203 Stretch is lighter, more breathable but still remarkably water-repellent, a real improvement on the previous Gabba. Taped shoulder seams also boost performance in the rain. The Gabba ROS, Rain or Shine, is now more water-resistant, more breathable and better fitting than ever, letting you laugh in the face of foul weather. Details also count when you’re cycling through the cold and wet. The YKK® Vislon® zipper is covered to keep out the elements, a dropped tail, with a large reflective panel, keeps wheel spray off and boosts visibility as daylight fades and the two larger rear pockets make accessing essentials easier, even with gloves on. The Blackout Edition is a nod to those occasions where Pro riders who wanted to ride Castelli products blacked out the logos so as not to upset existing non-Castelli clothing sponsors. It just goes to prove that Castelli is a natural choice for cycling performance wear, even if you’re not sponsored by them. It’s difficult to improve upon a classic but that never stops Castelli from trying. With their latest Gabba ROS, here in an exclusive Blackout version, they have pushed cycling performance to new heights yet again, letting you enjoy the ride no matter what mother nature has in store.
