Rivington is synonymous within cycling in the North West. Sheep house lane, a famous climb in the Rivington area has featured in the Tour of Britain, was the crunch point in the Chorley GP and is part of the gruelling Ironman Bolton route. It is a popular area with all types of cyclists including our founder, John Harrison who regularly trains in the region. We are going back to our roots and naming our latest collection after this popular cycling hotspot.
The Rivington jacket has been designed to bring race like performance to your training rides. Slightly heavier than a long sleeve jersey, this jacket features a highly breathable waterproof and windproof advanced fabric from eVent, plus two front zipped vents to aid breathability in fast high tempo efforts.
The critical difference between eVent technology and traditional waterproof/breathable fabrics is the billions of microscopic pores built in to the proprietary membrane that work instantly to vent water vapour (sweat) that builds up inside your jacket when you perform.
They call this Direct Venting™ technology, and unlike other technologies, it doesn't need to get wet to work. It’s a 'dry system' that allows eVent fabrics to be fully waterproof and fully breathable. Direct Venting™ technology is engineered to keep you in the ‘dry zone’ – a steady state of temperature and humidity that reduces the wild swings our bodies go through to stay in balance during physical exertion.The result is that you’ll spend more time performing at your best and less time fussing with your gear. And when conditions are bad, this can make all the difference.
