JOURNAL: Price versus value


Price versus value

We recently decided to stock the Castelli Gabba S/S Jersey….it is not cheap at £150 but this is a great price versus value illustration.  We chose it because we feel it is perfectly suited to British conditions (and definitely the North West).  The Windstopper material does an amazing job and keeps any chill off your chest.  The material is 4 way stretch so it is super comfy.  When you are climbing you can simply unzip the jersey to keep cool, on descents zip it back up to keep warm.  On coolish Spring and Autumn days wear it with arm warmers or a thin baselayer.  It is water repellant so will keep you dry.  And most importantly it is very breathable – a very important feature for cycling as you want perspiaration wicked away to evaporate.  As with all Castelli kit it is very nicely designed and manufactured and looks great.

So if you are a regular sporty / performance road cyclist you will probably wear this garment nearly every time you ride, on all but the coldest of days, making it great value.
