The Elite Gilet is an essential extra layer and can be the most versatile piece of kit in your cycling wardrobe, seeing year-round use. Lightweight and easily packable into a rear jersey pocket, this gilet offers water resistance as well as a windproof front to cut chill on cold morning starts in the spring and summer, long descents and autumn days when the wind picks up, dark clouds loom and the weather just won’t settle.
A cycling gilet is about packable protection and is your secret weapon against the elements. Smaller and more packable than a full jacket, gilets are the perfect piece of spare clothing to take with you on changeable days. Pair a gilet with a breathable long-sleeve jersey and you’ll have a warm but well-vented combination.
Whilst targeting protection to the front the mesh side and back panels provide great breathability and will dry quickly when you’re putting power through the pedals.
The Elite Gilet has a taller cut collar which helps to prevent neck-chill, it is finished with reflective tabs for visibility on darker days and has a full YKK zip for durability and cooling.
