Technical information

BOLD DESIGN CHOICES

Sometimes being bold means being different. At Van Rysel, we are driven by performance. And for a winter jacket, that means keeping you warm, of course, but without making compromises.
No compromises on warmth, with Kima Toplight, a material that is thin, light and windproof. No compromises on breathability, with Matrix, a highly breathable material used on the upper back and underarms. No compromises on aerodynamics, a thin, close-fitting jacket with a long-tail design.

"LONG TAIL" DESIGN

As you can see in these photos, we decided to make the jacket longer in the back. The reason is simple: to protect your cycling tights and your backside from road spray.

Another advantage is that we were able to position the pockets lower so that you don't have to twist your arm to put something in or take something out while cycling.

What is the Pro Fit design?

Pro Fit is a cycling garment design from Van Rysel. It's a design made for high-performance cyclists who want cycling clothes that are close-fitting without being constricting.
This jacket is designed to be worn over a technical base layer. If you plan on wearing it over two layers, we recommend buying one size larger than your usual.

Our Pro Fit design is for those cycling regularly. If you think you might need a jacket with a bit more volume, buy one size larger than your usual.

DETAILS THAT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

This jacket stands out with the attention we've given to every detail.

- A flap for the lower zip so that it doesn't damage your cycling tights.
- A flap for the top zip so that it doesn't irritate your neck.
- Soft sleeves with elasticated cuffs
- Small cords on the zips to make it easier to grab them when wearing gloves

POCKETS

This jacket is made with 7 pockets.
Two small side pockets that can also serve for rubbish.
A set of 5 back pockets that include:
- 2 pockets for snacks or small items - 1 zip pocket for phone/key/card - 1 net pocket for gloves, hat or other accessories.

TECHNICAL SPECS

100% Polyester
RET < 12, and an air permeability rating of 4/5.
Main component: 185 g/sqm

WHICH JACKET SHOULD YOU CHOOSE: RACER OR RACER XTREM?

These two jackets are very different. The Racer weighs 340 g whereas the XTREM weighs double that at 680 g.
The Racer is a close-fitting jacket that is very effective for riding in spring, autumn, or mild winter weather. But in temperatures below 7°C it starts to show its limits, and that is when we turn to the XTREM.

Note that these jackets are water-repellent, not waterproof. So we recommend taking along an ultralight rain jacket if there is a chance of rain.

Care tips

In order to keep your jacket looking impeccable year after year, we recommend that you machine wash it with a 30°C synthetics cycle. Close the zips before washing your jacket.
Don't tumble dry, and don't use fabric softener! Don't dry clean it either.
Line dry it in a well ventilated area.
