As we’ve discovered, the windy spring weather won’t pose an issue to the Santini Beta 2.0 jersey; the Italian brand's all-weather thermal jersey. Much like the famous Castelli Gabba, the Beta 2.0 is, on paper at least, the business when it comes to riding in inclement spring weather.

For starters, despite the seriously windy weather, I found Santini's Windstopper material capable of handling the worst of it, and at no point did I chill when out riding. If anything, I remained snugly warm despite the blustery conditions and cold morning starts.
