Technical information

HOW IS THIS PONCHO DESIGNED FOR URBAN MOBILITY?

Poncho designed for bike commuting, with a loose fit so you can wear it over your normal jacket and a 20-litre backpack.
Unisex cut that covers you from head to thigh.
You can wear your helmet over the hood or under it, except for bulky helmets such as bowl-type helmets.
Adjustable hood that follows your head movements.
Packs away into its pouch: W 26.5 x H 22.5 x D 5.5 cm.

How to stay dry

Even though this poncho protects your upper body really well (from your head to your knees), it's vital to pair it with overtrousers to protect your legs from the rain. Unfortunately, the poncho doesn't protect your shoes and so, in heavy downpours, this could leave you with very damp feet. The poncho's advantage lies in how easy it is to put on and to pack away into your pannier bags. Transform yourself in seconds!

HOW IS THE WATERPROOFING OF THIS PONCHO TESTED?

This poncho is waterproof thanks to the durability and coating of its fabric and its sealed seams. The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in mm of a water jet (test based on standard ISO 811). Our material is resistant to the pressure from 2000 mm of water after 5 washes. The finished product is approved in a shower test in the lab, where we recreate the conditions of an average downpour: 60 L water per square metre per hour for 2 hours.

WHAT DOES CERTIFIED VISIBILITY MEAN?

This poncho is certified for NIGHT VISIBILITY (EN1150 standard), with reflective strips to make cyclists visible even at night.
The reflective elements have been carefully positioned to account for the constraints of cycling so that they guarantee visibility at 50 m at night when car headlights are shone on them.

WATERPROOF AND BREATHABLE?

Hydrophilic coating (RET =< 12): 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.

ADDITIONAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT DETAILS

By recycling plastic bottles and worn fabrics to produce our polyester, we reduce the use of petroleum-based natural resources while retaining the qualities and performances you need from your product. Fabric dyeing requires lots of water, with large amounts of waste water also released from the dye vats. To reduce this environmental impact, we use a dope dyeing technique, where the pigment is applied during production of the thread itself.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators.
An overall rating (ABCDE) is given, allowing you to easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks etc).

Decathlon openly displays the environmental ratings of its products.
