If you have ever been fortunate enough to experience a ride through the Pyrénées in spring, you will know that a Windjacket is an absolute must. Iconic spots like Col d’Aubisque, a legend of the Pyrénées with its rich road race history, may feel Le Mistral’s chilly winds well into May. When you are battling such wind, you will come to depend on our Windjacket for its near supernatural ability to keep you dry, warm and comfortable.

The front panel of the Windjacket is highly windproof to ensure the wind chill does not knock you off your stride, while the DWR treatment prevents any moisture penetration. The rear of the jacket is constructed with a highly breathable ultra-stretch fabric for great moisture management and thermo-regulation over long distances. To allow you to maintain focus on the road, three rear pockets have been incorporated to keep your accessories close to hand, whilst a zipped security pocket ensures they are secure.

Elliot, Head of ashmei R&D, explains: “Fabric was critical in the design and performance success of the Windjacket, developing lightweight fabrics with high stretch, then mapping these on the cyclist’s body to create areas that enhance breathability and wind-proofing where the athlete requires it.”

    A very stylish, comfprtable and useful jacket for keeping out the wind/chill. Lovely texture & feel of the fabric makes it a pleasure to put on. The extra zipped side pocket is also very handy for valuables. I chose the “red” which has quite a unique shade to it – very different from the rest of the crowd. Overall, I rate this jacket very highly.

    This jacket is a thing of beauty; it’s easily one of the most refined looking pieces of kit I have in my collection (which includes many pieces from Rapha, which I consider tough competetion). The fit is great. The fabric is amazingly light and soft; I expected it to be a bit crisper like other wind jackets, but the softness doesn’t impede performance at all. There is a lot of ventilation on the underarms and back and good pocket storage. The drop tail offers a lot of coverage as well. The reflective bits are also really nicely done at the shoulders and running vertically down the back. It’s great on the bike, but also something I kinda just want to have on around the house all the time.

    I cycle every morning and one of the problems I face is at 8.00am when I live the house it is 1 degree and at midday when I return it is 19 degrees. Finding suitable clothing is never easy. This jacket is magnificent – wonderfully made and effective. A pleasure to put on.

    I used this stylish jacket for the first time last week, what a great wind proof jacket. The material is fab. It’s such a light weight piece of joy to wear and did it’s job perfectly. It’s also different in terms of style versus mainstream alternatives and the blue colour is somewhat unique.

    I bought this jacket a couple of months ago but due to the mild weather have only just started wearing it. I chose the red colour which in fact turned out to be more pink. I nonetheless like the colour as it as it is unusual and very stylish. If I were to be critical I would say I would have liked the sleeves to be a little more generous in size and length. However being 6’3″ tall and a medium size I guess I often have this problem. The long tail is particularly good. The jacket is very light and the material has a lovely quality feel. Overall a joy to wear.

ashmei jackets have an ergonomic cut and are slim cut to avoid wind resistance. The jackets have been tailored with a typical "on bike" position with required movement in mind.
