What they say: Borne from the need to be able to see a race number through your shell jacket in competition, this garment has evolved into a best-selling, highly versatile gilet.
What we say: Gossamer thin for the reason given above, this is a truly lightweight offering that almost feels flimsy. Don’t be deceived though. Made from a highly breathable material called ExoShell20ST, this gilet performed impressively at keeping wind and water out. Its racing origins are evident in its fitted cut, with elasticated armholes and hem ensuring it grips you tight.
Not that movement feels restrictive as the material is also elasticated. The zip has a full-length storm flap and zip garage up top. Reflective trim and logos help out with visibility, while a soft, wicking mesh fabric inside the collar offers a luxuriant touch on a vest that otherwise all about facilitating hard rides. Available in white or black in sizes XS-XXL, this also comes with its own carry sack.
