Castelli - Perfetto Light ( Save: 20 % )
It was the Castelli Pro riders who first asked for a Gabba that’s not as hot as the Gabba but warmer than the Perfetto Vest. The result is the Women's Perfetto Light Jersey. With the Gabba as a starting point Castelli have made the back in Nano Light fabric - the same fabric as their Nano Flex tights but without the brushed fleece inside. This gives the piece a lot of breathability and keeps you from overheating inside. By using a lighter weight of Windstopper® (a full 25% lighter than the one used on the Gabba) on the front the overall weight was further minimised but you still get perfect wind protection.
You may think that this is filling a very small niche due to the lighter weight and less insulation. However once you try it you'll understand. 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 a Perfetto vest 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.
