To the front of the Fiandre Medium Cycling Jacket, you’ll find GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ deployed. This high-performance material is completely windproof to prevent you from feeling windchill and fends off light rain and damp drizzly conditions. Meanwhile, the NoRain material to the back of the jacket provides an excellent degree of breathability. This prevents you from being soaked in sweat when you start to push the pace. And once you back off the pace, you’ll feel drier and warmer too.
Whether you’re heading out to build base mileage or hit intervals, the slim fit ensures a streamlined fit and little wasted energy when riding. And speaking of energy, the rear pockets provide space for all your energy bars and gels plus somewhere to stash a hardshell jacket for heavier periods of rain. A double collar provides a more comfortable and snug fit, keeping the elements out.
Sportful temperature guide
Sportful now split the temperature range of their garments into two zones. Each zone signifies a different temperature range depending on whether you’re riding at a slower, steadier pace or more intense, faster pace.
This means, for example, a jacket can be rated down to 0 degrees C if your cycling effort is at a harder and more intense pace where body heat is quickly built up. However, the same jacket will be better suited to slightly warmer temperatures, say 5 degrees C, when your efforts are slower and steadier where you’re simply not generating as much body heat.
