The Gabba changed the way you dress for moderate conditions. So Castelli brought Gabba-like construction to their top-of-the-line full-on rain jacket but they needed some new technology. They worked with event® to develop the lightest ever (and exclusive) version of their PTFE high-breathability membrane. Castelli tested that with team Cannondale-Garmin riders and got unanimous approval.
Cycling rain jackets have until recently really been repurposed mountaineering jackets: bulky construction, mountaineering fabrics, insufficient breathability, terrifying aerodynamics.
TIME TO RETHINK RAIN JACKETS
The new jacket had to be lighter, more compact to fit in a pocket, and more aero than ever before so Castelli also developed an extreme stretch version of the fabric to use on the shoulders, elbows and side panels. The resulting jacket fits close to the body and has minimal volume, yet without being too tight and binding when in the tuck position.
They really have thought through all the details. From easy opening to closing cuffs and the fact that you don't want to pull up the jacket to access your jersey pockets when it's raining. Things like making the zipper easy to open and close even though it's completely waterproof.
There's so much innovation in this jacket that Castelli believe they've just invented another category changer.
