This Castelli - Tempesta Race Jacket is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
Cycling rain jackets have until recently really been repurposed mountaineering jackets: bulky construction, mountaineering fabrics, insufficient breathability, terrifying aerodynamics. The new jacket had to be lighter, more compact to fit in a pocket, and more aero than ever before. So Castelli developed an extreme stretch version of eVent fabric to use on the shoulders, elbows and side panels. The resulting jacket fits close to the body and has minimal volume, yet without being too tight and binding when in the tuck position. As is usual with Castelli all details were finely considered. Like easy opening and closing cuffs. Like the fact that you don’t want to pull up the jacket to access your jersey pockets when it’s raining. Like making the zipper easy to open and close even though it’s completely waterproof. There’s so much innovation in this jacket that it's possible Castelli have, yet again, just invented another category changer. Gabba-like construction The Gabba changed the way you dress for moderate conditions. So Castelli brought Gabba-like construction to their top-of-the-line full-on rain jacket. But some new technology was needed. So they worked with eVent® to develop the lightest ever (and exclusive) version of their PTFE high-breathability membrane. This was tested with Team Garmin-Sharp riders and got unanimous approval for its fit and performance.
eVent waterproof fabric keeps you dry in wet conditions. It’s waterproof outside while allowing perspiration to escape from the inside through millions of tiny pores. In fact, eVent is 30% more breathable than its next closest competitor. eVent is the smartest choice for athletes who need and demand the highest possible performance and comfort from their apparel.
