With the Castelli Tempesta Rain Jacket. Castelli had one question, how do we make a cycling rain jacket better? 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. Castelli took its Gabba and Pocket Liner know-how and developed the Tempesta for just these occasions.
Firstly a new fabric was needed something waterproof and breathable but also ultra-light. Then it needed to stretch so it was snug fitting. It needed to be fully 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 style 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 we have a great big bum flap to keep spray at bay. Gabba soft-shell features in a fully waterproof hard-shell. Please be reminded 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 numbers pinned to it.
