Product Description

It's hard improving on perfection.

Last year's version of this jacket was called the Gabba Long Sleeve Jacket, but with Winter 2016 Castelli is going back to reserving the Gabba name for the original Gabba short sleeve jersey.

They kept hearing so many people call the long-sleeve version of the Gabba "perfect" so they renamed it the Perfetto Jersey and set about improving on perfection.

Castelli has improved the water-repellent finish so it will keep you drier without affecting breathability. They've refined the fit and laser cut the drain holes in the pockets. Also, Castelli has totally redone the splash flap on the rear of the jersey to make it lie flatter and fit better. Reflective logos on the back keep you visible.

Key Features:
  • Fully aero, fully breathable and fully protected
  • Gore® Windstopper® X-Lite Plus fabric for lightweight total wind protection with water-repellent finish
  • Nano Flex fabric insert under arms
  • Storm-flap construction with reflective logo at back protects from wheel spray
  • Silicone gripper at waist prevents ride-up
  • Full-length YKK® Vislon® zipper with wind flap
  • 3 rear pockets with laser-cut drain holes
  • Weight: 386g (Large)
  • Temperature Range: 6°-15°C / 43°-59°F

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Excellent
by Ian L on 09/03/2019

This really is a quality (if expensive) jersey. I've been really impressed with it so far. It stops the wind incredibly while somehow still being breathable, whilst water beads off really well. There are two side vents that help let some heat out that are easy to alter whilst riding with gloves on. It is longer at the back so it will never ride up your back whilst riding in an aero position. The pocket on the back is split into three and is about what you would expect. But things you put in there probably aren't going to fall out! Size wise I am 6'2", 38" chest and about 75-80kg with somewhat long arms. The large is perfect for me, it's fitted and the arm length is spot on. I have been wearing it over a base layer and it's been great.

Fantastic
by Anonymous user on 04/03/2018

Fantastic jacket from castelli, especially with the price offer. Kept the cold out on a cold winter's day. Will also be good for cool spring days because it's breathable. A snug fit and feels good. Order a size larger than normal. I'm 5ft 8 and just under 13 stone with athletic build and XL fits perfect. Highly recommend

5’7” 68kg and the large is perfect for me. My father always said ( buy quality, buy once) and the Perfetto is quality.

Perfetto by name
by Andrew M on 22/07/2017

I owned, rode and loved the Gabba 2 Long Sleeve until I had a tumble and took the elbow out of it. It is now a Gabba short sleeve. However, even with NoRain armwarmers, the combination is still not as good as the original. I wore it throughout the Scottish Winter with varying base layers (LS, SS, merino or wicking) and it is just supremely comfortable for changeable weather conditions, coping with temperatures from 5 - 15 C and with dry, smirry wet conditions and even short downpours. It was never teh jacket that let me down. The nice thing is the level of comfort you feel because of the breathability; even with substatial effort, I rarely felt uncomfortable and with the windblocking properties, never felt cold. It was my go-to 3 seasons jacket. This one is the birthday replacement due to be unwrapped in September in time for cold and wet autumn riding, yippee. The only visual difference with teh perfetto are teh laser cut drain holes in the rear pockets: the old Gabba has a mesh insert which gave teh pockets some shape and allowed bulky items to sit and be retained low in teh pocket - I have yet to see whether this will prove to be an issue. Would I buy one again? What do you think?

My favourite bike jersey by a long way!
by Michael B on 13/02/2017

5’11” (180cm), 79KG and the XL is just right. I also have last year’s long sleeve jersey, the Castelli Gabba which this Perfetto replaces, this Perfetto is far superior, the new rear design works really well. I can never understand why they sell black bike tops when you can get a yellow one that is so visible. It seems that the price goes up and down by 30% on a daily basis, I got mine delivered for just over a 100 quid which is still a lot for a jersey made in Moldova but I do love it.
