When it’s not cold enough for heavyweight winter kit but, at the other end of the scale, not warm enough to don summer cycling kit, the Rocket Thermal Cycling Jersey comes into its own. Made from a brushed back mid-weight polyester, the Rocket Thermal takes the edge of cooler temperatures come the months of autumn and spring. And when your fitness is building and the pace of your rides begin to increase, the excellent breathability maintains your comfort as you build up a sweat.
The fit is kept streamlined but with stretch and space allowing easy mobility on your bike. And for rides, both long and short, the rear pockets are gusseted to provide easily accessible space for all your cycling essentials.
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 jersey 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 jersey 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.
