Do it all long sleave road top?
I’m looking (if such a thing exists) for a long sleave top that is flexible through a range of temps. Either as just the top or with some base layers underneath.
I would like it to be breathable and windproof as I run quite hot. Not too worried about it being waterproof.
£100 maybe £130?Posted 4 years ago

I took a punt on this on the last £75 code day.
Well impressed. I don’t normally feel the cold so wanted something that was very breathable but kept the wind at bay.Posted 4 years ago
Added armwarmers underneath at the weekend when it dropped to 2deg
Fourth for the Gabba, but I’d go short sleeve with nanoflex arm warmers-
Edit, that said, if you run hot and you’re not bothered about waterproofness any log sleeve jersey and a range of baselayers, even decathlon are doing a windstopper one now. I tend to go sortsleeve jersey, baselayer arm warmers and gilet almost all winterPosted 4 years agoWhathaveisaidnowMember
I’d get a windstopper top with zip off sleeves, Gore do one, they class it as a jacket, but its not really..
Mine isn’t Gore, but its windstopper and its fantastic, had it about ten years and still my go to top!!Posted 4 years ago
Cyclestore have got this Endura long sleeve on offer:
tempted to give it a whirl for £45.Posted 4 years agoclubberMember
I’ll do a plus one on a good gilet with decent arm warmers. I find arm warmers really useful as it means all your jerseys can be made into longsleeve tops with them but you can also adjust them while out riding if necessary.
I’ve not bought another long sleeve top since discovering arm warmersPosted 4 years ago

The short Gabba top. What is the highest temp. you could wear it in without dying!?
Castelli say 18 deg, but itailians are a bit wet when it comes to temp ranges so I’d say anything much above 10 would be uncomfortable. But that is my experience of other italian estimates, I’ve not tried a gabba.Posted 4 years agowoody2000Subscriber
So it is 🙂
I have got one, very nice it is too. Warm but not overly so, windproof on the front and tops of the arms so you get some breathability under your armpits! Quite slim fitting but we’re all athletes, right? 🙂
FWIW, a med fits me fine at 5’7ish and 73kgs with a bit of a belly.
There does seem to be a jacket and a jersey in the FS260 range, mine is the jersey.Posted 4 years agomoomanMember
Just a word of warning on a Gabba sizing .. they very small.Posted 4 years ago
I`m 5ft8″ and 154lbs .. I went for the size medium for race fit.
Very very snug .. so much so that doing the zip right up stopped circulation of blood to my head.
Maybe I have a fat neck? .. swapped the medium for a large anyways.
