Most of your ride crew bailed on you, but today's frosty temps and unforgiving breeze hasn't deterred you from getting on the bike and logging some base miles. Though just a few years ago, weather like this meant you'd be layering up with a plethora of unflattering and inefficient cold weather kit, times have changed. Zip on a Castelli Gabba 2 Long Sleeve Jersey over your base layer and you'll be prepared to take on rides in the cold without overheating when your first climb makes you work.Largely responsible for the shift to more efficient cold weather cycling kit, Castelli's Gabba line is beloved by pros and self sponsored cyclists alike for its contoured, race fit and minimalistic design, boasting a hardworking Windstopper X Lite construction that blocks wind while allowing sweat to escape so you'll stay dry and warm as you ride. If you're caught in a surprise shower, the fabric's water repellent finish prevents things from getting soggy, and flexible underarm inserts allow the whole jersey to move with you as you're stretched out in your drops or standing to wait at a traffic light. When you put the jersey on standing up, don't be surprised if it feels a little slimmer than expected the Gabba 2's forward oriented sleeves and shorter cut are hallmarks of Castelli's fit, and will make perfect sense when you get into a riding position and find yourself with a jersey that stays in place for the duration of your ride. According to Castelli, the Gabba 2 functions best at temps ranging from 43 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit, but depending on your base layer choice and riding pace of the day racing versus easy base miles you'll have plenty of freedom on the fringe ends of that range.
