Insulating, windproof, water resistant and folds away into a back pocket, our aqua challenge is our most versatile gilet yet.
Gilet’s are a versatile piece of any cyclists wardrobe. They can be worn over anything from a jersey in summer to a jacket in winter to provide extra protection from the elements.
Built on the foundations of our aqua repel V2 jackets, we have utilised Windtex Stormshield fabric on the front, side and shoulder panels for maximum shelter from the elements. This provides some insulation and is warmer than a standard wind block gilet. On the back is a breathable section to allow heat and moisture to escape. This panel is made from our Static high visibility material, that works by reflecting thousands of reflective tiny lines to create an eye catching effect for approaching vehicles in low light conditions. All fabrics used have a four way stretch for better fitting.
A highly cut neck, full length zip with internal zip and chin guard are added measures to keep the wind and rain out.
When the temperature rises and the rainclouds pass, you can fold it away back into your rear pocket.
