Do you want to know more about cycling jackets?
Cycling jackets are garments designed to cope with possible adverse weather conditions and to provide greater comfort during bicycle trips.
Choosing the type of jacket is extremely important, to ensure you have the most appropriate model for all conditions. These are the types of jackets available to complete your kit and make your cycles more enjoyable:
- Windproof jackets, as the name suggests, offer great protection against the wind, keeping especially the chest area well protected. A good windproof jacket is also breathable and minimally waterproof, as it can protect the cyclist in the presence of light rain and showers.
- Waterproof jackets are designed to prevent you from getting wet during heavy rain and storms. High quality waterproof jackets are prepared to withstand fairly prolonged rainfall. It is important to find a model that ensures breathability in order to wick away all moisture to the outside.
- Thermal jackets are those designed to regulate and maintain a good body temperature when the cyclist faces very cold climates. They act as a thermal insulator in low temperatures, as protection against the wind and are breathable.
- Cycling jackets are made, mostly, of fabrics such as polyester, polyamide and elastane. These kinds of fabrics are excellent as they have great breathability, are quick drying and help wick away sweat from the body.
