This break from protocol came about because the pro riders recognised that this fully windproof and highly water-resistant garment would offer a performance advantage when racing in stormy conditions. Since that fateful spring classic, the Gabba has become a peloton staple, whether for foul weather racing or winter training, and although much imitated has never yet been bettered.

Except by us, that is. This second version is more water-resistant than ever, thanks to the use of two different Gore-Tex InfiniumTM Windstopper® fabrics. At the front is a brushed material with a water treatment, while at the back the fabric is stretchy and breathable, so that the jacket fends off rain and fights sweat build-up with equal skill.

This new Gabba RoS has further been improved by an extra pocket for added storage space, better reflectivity at the back, a two-way zip for better temperature control, and rethought placement of the taped shoulder seams for better rain protection.

For over a decade now the Gabba has been keeping professional and amateur cyclists warm, without allowing them to overheat, while foul weather racing or training in spring and autumn. Typically worn over a sleeveless base layer and jersey, its usefulness can be extended by pairing it with arm warmers and a thermal jersey as the cold starts to bite.

Wear our unmistakable Gabba RoS 2 not only to keep your core warm, but to proclaim your allegiance to the world of cycling.
