This is Chapter III's variant of David Millar's favourite racing garment, the Castelli Gabba. It has all the same properties, only cut in a manner that makes it more fitted to everyday use. The most striking difference is the collar; it is secured with one button: when not required it can be wrapped around the rear of the neck and fastened to the same button. This reveals the Rosso Fuoco colour on the inside of the Rocka, a bright contrast to the army-like functional green of the exterior.
This two-tone material was especially made for this design and is nearly 20% lighter than the material used for the Gabba. The Rocka is designed as an outer shield. Although not water-proof it is water repellent, windproof, and breathable, able to protect you in all but the most extreme of conditions, hence the protective collar. There is a storm-flap pocket on the front. There is only one pocket on the back, in the central position. This is to allow for compatibility with the pockets of the jersey underneath because once the Rocka has been removed from its resting place in the central pocket of the 1.21 it allows space in that area for the pocket to be used on the 1.61. Like the front pockets on both garments this pocket is protected by a storm flap.
The name originates from the motorcycling culture of the mid-twentieth century, the Rockers. David always felt more aligned to that than the scooter culture, the Mods (when it comes to going on my bike, I like to feel like a Rocker, not a Mod). Where the Mods would wear sharp suits the Rockers would wear leather biking jackets, most of which had wraparound buttoned collars.
