With plunging temperatures and the threat of rain, sleet or even snow, the Total Comfort Cycling Jacket gets you out on the bike and enjoying building up your fitness. It does this firstly via a Polartec® NeoShell® outer. This fabric gives you excellent protection when storm clouds burst and shields you from cold winds too. Then there’s the Alpha® Direct lining. This soft fleecy material provides outstanding insulation from the cold, and yet weighs very little and adds minimal bulk.
Once you’re outside and applying more pressure to the pedals, you’ll find the high level of breathability maintains a drier and more comfortable feel on the bike. It’s ideal for rides of varying intensities. And should you feel the need to increase ventilation, the full-length zipper lets you control temperature regulation with ease.
Rear drop pockets, plus a zippered side pocket, provides space for all your essentials. A DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment on the tail adds extra protection from road spray kicked up from your back wheel.
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.
