Windjacket

$199.00

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.”

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    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.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    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.
