Castelli Perfetto RoS Long Sleeve Jacket
Usually dispatched within 24 hours
IF YOU HAD JUST ONE JACKET
The Perfetto RoS is the one jacket that does everything well. We initially designed it as a cool-weather training and extreme-weather race piece for our pro riders, but in reality it excels in many conditions thanks to its full wind protection, great fit through stretchy fabrics, and best-in-class breathability.
Winter 2019 represents the biggest performance upgrade in the four generations of this jacket. RoS in the name signifies Rain or Shine. The emphasis should be on dry-weather comfort, which is where this jacket really excels, but then you get near waterproof protection if you do get caught in the rain. We worked with Gore to develop two new Castelli exclusive GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® fabrics. We use a light fleece-lined water-resistant version on the forward-facing surfaces and a lighter, stretchier fabric on the back that maintains the breathability of the previous fabric while improving water repellency at the same time.
The Perfetto RoS is that ideal weight: no built-in insulation so you can layer over a light base layer for moderate conditions. Or you can add a thermal jersey underneath and take it to very cold conditions. You decide.
The Perfetto family features are all there: excellent fit, easy-sliding YKK® zipper, long tail to protect from wheel spray, reflective panel on the back, and discreet styling that belies the jacket's racing pedigree.
This is the one jacket that belongs in every cyclist's quiver.
WHAT IT IS
The long-sleeve Gabba is one of our most versatile pieces. 100% wind protection with GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® water protection and best-in-class breathability. With a light base layer it's good for mild temperatures, or with a thermal layer you can ride it below freezing. If you have just one jacket in your cycling wardrobe, this should be it.

Castelli Profetto ROS Long Sleve
Jacket arrived today. It’s a beautiful deep orange colour - very visible. This is a review on the service from ProBikeKit and the quality of the garment not on the using of it. Pro Bike Kit as always first class service, prompt delivery, infact 1 day early 👍 Be mindful, that at 6’ and 80kg with a long body and 40” chest an XL was chosen. There certainly is length in the arms- more than enough. Fit is perfect shoulders, neck and arms. But a slightly tighter fit at the bottom end when zipping up. Personally could be a little longer at the front. Important if you wear lots of layers, there isn’t too much spare room. The thermal base layer today just about fitted underneath. The pockets, ventilation and the overall design is spot-on. Again to mention a fantastic colour and legendary Castelli quality.
Great jacket but be very careful on the sizing
The jacket is great on cold days, blocks the wind well, warm. I have not tried it in the rain. Just be really careful on the sizing. I measured and used the sizing chart and had to upsize from Medium to Extra Large before I found a jacket that fit me properly. The sizing chart is a joke. I have never been XL in my life and rarely large.
Castelli RoS jacket great fit and feel
Despite warnings, I bought the size indicated by my measurements... it is snug sure but you would expect that for maximum aero benefit. I wondered what the zip vents on the sides were for... until I unzipped the front because I was warm. Opening the side vents reduced the tendency for an open jacket to balloon out, and improved air flow nicely in a comfortable way.
Genuinely lovely product but sizing is somewhat different from other brands. I am not a huge chap but the largest size available, XL was nowhere near capacious enough for me. I’m 6ft and 14 stone. If you’re anything beyond a 42inch chest you’ll struggle.
If you could only have 1 winter jacket this would be it.
0-6 celsius need 2 long sleeve undershirts. 6-12 celsius need 1 long sleeve undershirt. Good for long slow, rolling or high tempo work, doesn't seem to overheat. Typical Castelli sizing, so if you want a bit of room go up a size. Quality material, quality build, well worth the outlay.
fantastic Castelli quality but...........
Jacket bought as a birthday present, outstanding quality and looks fantastic, but it was ordered using the “size guide” and still came in way too small - not only tight but short in the body too! I think the Castelli range is made with ultra lean pro-riders in mind and for average / club riders (I ride 4 > 500 miles a month) they need to be ordered at LEAST one size larger than the size guide indicates (I’m 5’7” 11.3 stone and need Ex. large - couldn’t get the large done up without fear of suffocation!!!) If you can get the size right - the quality simply will not be bettered and as always fantastic service from Pro Bike Kit too!!!
When you first put on the jacket it feels like it's going to fit tight then you realize it's got some nice stretch to it. It does fit snug however. I like it. My rides on windy 7-13 degrees Celsius days left me feeling this jacket will get me out more often in those conditions because I reside in a cocooned environment. Keeps all the wind out. Got caught in unexpected rain and it just beads and runs off. It is the perfect jacket for spring and fall.
great for British autumn / winter
This is a great jacket, offering the cold and wind protection of the first two generation Gabbas, but now with a shower protection that works. Got caught in the rain the other day and it shed water like a hard shell goretex, but was breathing like a shoftshell still. Now just to see how long the finish lasts.. hardly dare wash it!
