Perfetto means “perfect” in Italian. That’s the word that keeps coming out when wearing this jacket in a very wide range of conditions. Lighter than the Gabba but oh so versatile in changeable riding conditions.
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 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.
You may 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.
A wholly 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 autumn rides, with or without rain, with an extremely wide comfort range.
