Gabba 2 Jersey

Review: Castelli Gabba 2 jacket

When we had the Gabba jersey in for test it earned itself a 10/10 rating and it’s easy to see why.

Granted, this one is the short sleeve version, but it still comes the same features that made its long armed brethren so good.

In particular, the Gore Windstopper Fabric that makes it the benchmark for other all weather tops.

Castelli Nanoflex knee warmer

Review: Castelli Nanoflex knee warmer

It’s almost Spring, right? Sure, so treat yourself to some of the right Spring kit.

These knee warmers are great for those in between days and they’re even better when they’re half price.

We’ve reviewed them and reckon their excellently warm and water repellent with improved comfort, too.

Castelli Velo Vest

Review: Castelli Velo Vest

When we reviewed Castelli’s Velo Vest we thought that it could quite easily become a key addition of your cycling wardrobe.

It’s the perfect fit for those classically British winter days – cool, damp and windy.

Buy now: Castelli Velo Vest from Evans Cycles for £45.49 (d0wn from £64.99)

Women’s Alpha Jacket AW16 for £143

The Alpha Jacket is neat in that the outer waterproof layer is detachable from the inner.

This makes it easy to vent on long climbs by just unzipping the outer, before zipping it up again for the descent.

Buy now: Alpha Jacket from Chain Reaction Cycles for £143 (down from £220)

Perfetto Long Sleeve Jersey for £122.99

So named because it is perfect, apparently. While we’ve not had chance to test this one, it does have some pretty neat features.

The Italian brand has made it more waterproof as well as redesigned the tail so it should sit flatter.

Buy now: Castelli Perfetto from Evans Cycles for £122.99 (down from £174.99)

Quindici Soft Wool Sock for £12.79

Treat your feet to a nice soft pair of socks. It’s made from merino wool so it’ll keep your toes nice and toasty.
