Description

If you are a fan of the Castelli Gabba range then you will love the new top-of-the-line Tempesta jacket that offers even more protection.

The Castelli Gabba is already an icon for racing and training in wet weather, but it was never designed to offer complete protection. If your at the start of a 6 hour race or training ride and its teaming down you know that your going to need a shell jacket. As a result Castelli took its Gabba and Pocket Liner know-how and developed the Tempesta. Although Castelli have taken some features from the Gabba and Pocket Liner they needed some new technology, so they worked closely with eVent to develop the lightest ever (and exclusive) version of their PTFE high-breathability membrane. Castelli tested this with Team Garmin Sharp riders and got unanimous approval.

As well as having a lighter material Castelli knew that the Tempesta also needed to stretch so it was snug fitting and it also needed to be full taped to keep the rain out. But it also needed to do racing and training better so it has pockets because you still need easy access to food in the rain (the pockets feature Gabba mesh bases so they don't fill with water). The zipper is totally waterproof but easy to use and the sleeves have pull cords not elastic or Velcro. And of course it has a great big bum flap to keep spray at bay. Gabba softshell features in a fully waterproof hardshell.

Please note that the Tempesta is a ultra light high performance jacket, used as intended it will offer years of great service but it isn't a commuter or MTB jacket so no rucksacks. And remember no race numbers should be pinned to it.

Note: Please click on the above tabs for the Castelli size guide and technology guide.

Note: Castelli clothing is sized small, Tweeks Cycles recommend you select one size above normal for an athletic fit, or two sizes above if you prefer a more relaxed fit.
