Wind will suck the heat right out of your bones faster than you can say "I'm cold", so a windproof layer like the Castelli Gabba Long Sleeve Women's Jersey is essential when things start getting crisp and breezy. The Gabba's Windstopper X-Lite fabric isn't just wind resistant, it's fully windproof, and is also finished with a DWR water-repellent coating, so the elements won't turn your ride into a freezing cold sufferfest. Sweat can be a problem on cold days too, so Castelli outfitted the Gabba with NanoFlex underarm panels, which improve ventilation and moisture transfer while simultaneously allowing easier arm movement. The form-following race fit, high collar, and dropped hem provide full coverage and sleek aerodynamics, and reflective details help you pop against early morning and late evening backgrounds.
