This PPE-certified cycling jacket comes with reflective strips and a reflective magnetic flap on the front for visibility at night.
The reflective parts have been positioned based on the constraints of cycling (leaning forwards, wearing a backpack, signalling with your arm) to guarantee 360° visibility at night from up to 50 m away when picked up by car headlights.
SHAPE DESIGNED FOR CYCLISTS
Its shape covers the lower back, arms, neck and wrists while cycling, providing excellent protection from the rain and wind.
Ribbed cuffs to stop air getting in.
There are vents under the arms to help air circulate. Equipped with 2 hand pockets and an external chest pocket with a zip fastening for added security.
The hood tucks into the neck and can be worn over your helmet or without your helmet if you're walking.
The fabric's coating and sealed seams guarantee waterproofing. The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in mm of a water jet (test based on standard ISO 811). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Our fabric can resist the pressure from 2000 mm of water - 2000 schmerbers (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting around 1 hour, or 6 cm of rain in 1 hour), even after 5 washes.
Hydrophilic coating RET=12 which limits condensation inside the garment. To see whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapour produced by the body escape, and the more breathable it is.
For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric. 9 < RET < 12 = highly breathable fabric. 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric. RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric.
The lining and coating are eco-designed thanks to the mass dyeing process. The integration of pigments during the thread production process (dope dyed) reduces the environmental impact of dyeing. This limits both water consumption and pollution.
The wadding is 90% recycled.
