Description of Castelli Perfetto Light Short Sleeve 16045 FW 2016 - mirage 077

Pro requested perfection
(by Steve Smith, Castelli Brand Manager)

There’s no denying that the Gabba short-sleeved race jacket has been a game changer in pro cycling. Most of the peloton pulls it out whenever the weather is cold or wet. But sometimes the Gabba is too warm. Its allover protection can make it feel too hot for racing in cool conditions, so some of our Team Cannondale-Garmin riders asked for protection like the Gabba but with more breathability for milder conditions.

Enter the Perfetto Light. It has the same cut as the Gabba, and allover water protection, but only the front is in Windstopper® fabric. The front is made in a Windstopper® fabric that’s 20 percent lighter than the Gabba. Then on the back we use our Nano Light Pro fabric, which is highly water repellent and stretchy but has no membrane to inhibit air exchange. The fabric is very tightly knit so you don’t feel the wind coming through, but it is open enough to prevent the moisture buildup that can happen with the Gabba during intense efforts or when the temperature rises.

At first look you would think that this piece sits between the Gabba Jacket and the Fawesome Vest. Before we tried it, we thought it would be a nice-tohave garment for the pros for warmer wet races. But instead we found a new product type that covers 90 percent of the Gabba conditions and 90 percent of the Fawesome conditions and is the ideal garment for spring or fall rides, with or without rain, with an extremely wide comfort range.

Perfetto means “perfect” in Italian. That’s the word that keeps coming out when wearing this jacket in a very wide range of conditions.

You’ll use it more than you can imagine
It was the pros who first asked for a Gabba that’s not as hot as the Gabba but warmer than the Fawesome Vest. So Castelli started from the Gabba and made the back in Nano Light fabric -- the same fabric as the Nano Flex tights but without the brushed fleece inside. This gives the piece a lot of breathability and keeps you from overheating inside. Castelli further lightened it up by using a lighter weight of Windstopper® (a full 25% lighter than the one used on the Gabba) on the front. You make think that this is filling a very small niche. But just try it. It can cover most of the conditions of the Gabba (except wet racing and very cold), yet it handles warmer temperatures better. And the fit is exceptional, which is one more reason you’ll keep reaching for it.

The consensus of the Castelli test crew is that this piece doesn’t fully replace the Gabba or Fawesome, but it’s another arrow in your quiver that is ideally suited to cool temperatures, especially when it’s dry or there’s a risk of light rain.

Features:
- Gore Windstopper® 150 fabric on front, sleeves and yoke for lightweight wind protection
- Nano Light fabric on the back sheds water but allows significant breathability
- 3 external rear pockets
- Long tail with reflective trim
- YKK® Vislon zipper for easy opening and closing
