Thanks to its brushed-backed polyester construction, the Giara Softshell Cycling Jacket is able to maintain a warm and cosy micro-climate inside. While insulating you against the cold, its excellent breathability also ensures sweat can escape. This will leave you drier, warmer and more comfortable as you take on tough headwinds and increase effort levels on steep gravel hill climbs.
As befits a jacket designed for two-wheeled adventures, storage space is plentiful. The standard rear drop pockets are complemented by extra zippered pockets to the back and the chest. This ensures all your essentials are kept within easy reach.
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 may 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.
