Technical information

The purpose of a cycling jacket

The third layer is the layer that protects you from the elements, for instance the cold and the wind, while the underneath layers offer warmth and breathability. By wearing a suitable cycling jacket, you will maintain your performance and comfort, whatever the weather.
This RC500 cycling jacket keeps you nice and warm with its integrated, removable neck gaiter. The adjustable vents let perspiration escape

Component breathability

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 it lets water vapour produced by the body escape, therefore the more breathable it is.
• RET <6: extremely breathable, suitable for the most intense workouts
• RET 6 to 12: very breathable, designed for moderate exercise
• RET 12 to 20: moderately breathable, not enough for exercise
• RET >20: little breathability, unsuitable for exercise

Care tips

Machine wash at 30°C. Synthetic programme. Turn the garment inside out. Use minimal laundry detergent. Do not add softener. Line dry in a warm, ventilated area. Do not tumble dry.Do not dry clean. Do not bleach. Do not place on a heater to dry.

What is a "softshell"?

A "softshell" is a garment that is windproof and often stretchy to allow very good freedom of movement. A softshell is water-repellent (protection from drizzle or splashes from the road), but isn't waterproof like a "hardshell".
However, the membrane provides good breathability (ability to let water vapour generated by the body during exercise escape), so it is well-suited to sports activities.

WARMTH

A product's ability to protect from the cold. It depends on the material's thermal resistance and how much air can pass through it. The higher its thermal resistance, the more the product retains the heat produced by the body while cycling.
This RC500 jacket's membraned main fabric is almost completely airtight and has an Rth thermal resistance of 0.019 m² K/W.
