The famous Gabba started out as a request from pro riders who wanted a short-sleeve rain jacket for racing in the rain. Castelli initially thought it would be such a hopelessly niche product that they'd never sell any, but it was made because their pro riders needed it. However, it turned out that the Gabba revolutionised the way pro riders dress for wet conditions, and now cyclists everywhere have found a better way to dress for cool conditions, whether dry or wet.
Along the way Castelli added a long-sleeve version of the Gabba, and then a vest, a lighter-weight version and even one with removable sleeves. It was starting to become a bit confusing, but the one constant was that everyone was using the same word to describe these products: perfect. Or in Italian, “perfetto.” Castelli have chosen to rename this family of products the Perfetto family, and the Gabba name will be reserved for the original short-sleeve jacket for racing in the rain.
