Another product resulting from the business's partnership with the Cervelo TestTeam and Garmin-Cervelo, the Castelli Fawesome Vest provides a high-performance mix of wind and water defense in a light-weight, aerodynamic plan. Expert cyclists can be fickle animals. For example, Castelli's expert riders desired a vest that was tight, aerodynamic, and breathable; but they chose not to jeopardize on the overall wind and water defense provided in Castelli's other winter products. Not wishing to dissatisfy some of the world's finest cyclists, Castelli right away set to work. First, they obsessed over the Fawesome's fit, eventually creating a vest that's nearly as aerodynamic as Castelli's Aero Race Jersey-- a form-fitting masterpiece that re-defined how we all think of race-fit jerseys.To address the demand that the vest breathe while having the ability to stand up to wind and rain, Castelli picked Gore's Windstopper X-Lite Plus (the same innovative fabric utilized for the Gabba rain jersey) for the Fawesome. A soft 4-way stretch mix of polyester and elastane, Windstopper X-Lite Plus fabric is incredibly lightweight and provides a stretchy, breathable shell that's likewise wind and waterproof, making the vest a perfect option for rides in cold and wet weather condition. It's no surprise that the Fawesome was a popular choice among Garmin-Cervelo riders throughout the 2011 Spring Classics.Other details include Velocity fabric on the back of the vest for breathability and temperature level regulation and a lower back splashguard to secure you from spine-chilling wheel spray. Camlock YKK Vislon zippers are light, smooth, and stay flat when the zipper head is down, while silicone grippers on the waistband avoid the vest from riding up when you're on the bike. Rear reflective tabs and trim along the lower hem finish the plan, offering enhanced visibility on grey, winter rides.
