09 Jan Finally!
It has taken 15 months to source the perfect fabric. We wanted an amazing material that would protect the rider in the worst rain storms. Either racing or training: being wet, then cold, is dangerous for the body and mind.
15 months of samples and testing and disappointment. Warm but wouldn’t shield from rain. Rain proof and warm- but boil in the bag sweating. Breathable and warm- but bulky and heavy. All discarded. Finally, we have landed it.
The 3 layer fabric is only .75mm thick. The internal membrane is Breathable and waterproof to the impressive 6000/5000 rating. It is machine washable and at repeated 30degrees cycle, it maintains both breathability and water proof. We will initially produce in 90 days (from yesterday!) a long sleeve, race fit jersey. Not a waterproof garment, but will keep the rider warm, breathing and protected for up to 5 hours.
This will be the lightest foul weather jersey on the market and under half the cost of the competition. For spring/summer and Autumn cloud protection .
Better than a surprise birthday.
