The possibilities of roads not yet ridden, sits open. We should not let the weather dictate our saddle time.
This Mistral is the fourth evolution of our Foul Weather jacket and has developed directly from customer feedback and new material technology. The key to the garments success is the three-layer, German membrane, which is just 1.2mm thick. With only a light base layer you can train in comfort. The technical material will block fierce north winds and keep you warm in November downpours.
The garment just works to protect you cycling …..when it’s not summer. “Best money I have ever spent on anything cycling”
The material is now DWR treated before production, giving the material a lasting water shedding treatment. Ask around or search for reviews and comments from cyclists who use this jacket. There are lots of soft shell fabrics out there. The goal of this jacket is to keep you warm while riding in ALL conditions and the latest Mistral does this seamlessly. The soft-shell is water resistant, but due to the superior body stretch of the material, the seams cannot be internally taped, so in a downpour, the rain will eventually get through. The magic of the Mistral is that you will not get cold, being 100% windproof and with a breathable rating of over 10,000. If you already have a mistral, you don’t need another!
Use with only a base layer from 5 to 14 degreesC. Layer with a long sleeve jersey and it will perform down to freezing.
Black is remaining 2019 stock.
One of our riders who used it on a recent event describes it best :
“I had a warm chest, on a fast descent, in a thunderstorm…unreal”
Keeping riders warm in over 34 countries in the past 7 years.
The garment is designed to be neat fitting and only requires a thin base layer next to the skin. These are new generation fabrics, so we need to reconsider how we dress for conditions. This requires no extra layering in wind or rain. If you want a looser fit or plan to wear more garments underneath, please size up.
