3 Season System

The 3 season product system started as a far-fetched concept spoken about on late Autumn rides, when the temperature dropped below jersey weather, the chances of a downpour became more likely and the wind chill began to cut deep on the descents.

Ride attire would switch daily from baselayer and jersey, waterproof jacket, softshell jacket, windjacket and emergency jacket, all surpassing their individual purposes but the question remained, could we create a garment system which fulfilled all of their functionality in a simplified single layer?

With the latest advances in fibre and manufacturing technologies, the 3 season garment system has been created. Consisting of a short sleeve jersey, bib short, leg-warmer, arm-warmer and glove this single layer system uses a tightly woven, high stretch micro-fibre to create a water resistant, windproof, breathable, compressive and aerodynamic garment, coming together to be the best performing cycle clothing system possible.

This ground-breaking fibre technology has a water-resistant finish like no other, when a shower hits the rain will roll off like the best waterproofs.

The tight microfibre weave makes the fabric extremely windproof and it’s brushing backing creates additional warmth and comfort. Incredible stretch and power provides excellent range of motion and compression, helping to reduce fatigue over consecutive ride days. Incredibly, the fabric also breathes, it allows air and moisture particles to transfer through the fabric to the outside.
The garment system has been created with the vision of removing any unnecessary excess, making the garments as lightweight, comfortable and aerodynamic as possible. The hems, cuffs and pocket opening on all the garments (where applicable) have been laser cut as a raw edge, removing additional seam weight and removing any potential pressure hot spots. Silicon gripper has been printed directly onto the garment to remove the additional layer of fabric normally required, and on the bib shorts we’ve removed this completely. Elbow, Hip and Knee joints have been articulated, removing excess fabric that would normally bunch when on the drops. This and many more have been tweaked, manipulated and tested to create the 3 season garment system.
