Gabba WS Rain Jersey – Fully aero, fully breathable, and fully protected. The Cervélo TestTeam riders will be able to race in the rain, fully protected, and nearly as aero as their normal dry weather race kit.
With the futuristic and miraculous Gabba WS Rain Jersey, we have been able to make race-wear that’s fully protective, very stretchy, and yet so breathable that you can keep the entire thing closed up without overheating. By adding this short-sleeve Gabba WS Rain Jersey over the Aero Race jersey, the Cervélo TestTeam riders will be able to race in the rain, fully protected, and nearly as aero as their normal dry weather race kit. It’s made possible thanks to a revolutionary new fabric being developed by Castelli and GORE.
By adding a pair of the water repellent Nanoflex arm-warmers to the short-sleeve Gabba WS Rain Jersey, the CTT riders will stay as dry as possible, thanks to the 5 phase miraculous nanotechnology treatment. The water drops just bounces off the fabric. It’s not 100% waterproof, but the best solution we’ve ever tried for staying comfortable in any wet race condition.
The Gabba WS Rain Jersey is great for aerodynamic protection for racing when it’s raining
and not terribly cold. The Nanoflex arm-, knee- and leg-warmes will be available for sale during
September 2010. The Gabba WS Rain Jersey will hit the store shelves during Winter 2011.
Comments from Haussler, Hunt, Hammond and Lancaster:
– “That’s the best bit of kit I’ve ever worn.”
– “Best idea of Castelli so far”
– “Best thing ever”
– “Perfect for rain and cold”
– “Never tried anything comparable”
– “Let’s just hope it rains.”

Will this product EVER be released?
Hi Pedro – It should be in shops in August/September. It has taken some time for GoreTex to get the fabric ready commercialization.
Is there a UPF rating for your long sleeved jerseys, I am an avid cyclist but have recently had a run in with skin cancer, still want to ride and compete but will need good UPF long sleeved jerseys from now on.
Any date update on this yet guys? Saw the Team wearing it today in the Tour and looked superb.
The Gabba WS Rain Jersey will hit the store shelves during September 2011.
