Winter needn’t mean an end to your cycling adventures. And on those days where you’re exploring new roads and trails, at times taking it easy, at others pushing the pace and maybe stopping for coffee in the wilds, the Women’s Supergiara Cycling Jacket delivers cosy comfort. Polartec® Alpha® is remarkable light and low on bulk but it’s offers an outstanding warmth to weight ratio. Alpha® is deployed across the front, back and sleeves of the jacket to tenaciously hold onto body warmth.
Once you're pushing the pace and building up a sweat, Alpha® is superb at regulating temperature and releasing sweat build-up too. Once the pace eases or you stop to brew a coffee, this ensures you'll avoid feeling chilly. The outer shell of the jacket provides reliable protection from biting cold winds too, preventing heat loss and discomfort. A water-repellent finish also sees light rain bead on the jacket surface rather than immediately soak in. Ideal for fending off road spray and mud kicked up from off-road trails.
The Supergiara has a total of 9 pockets, offering copious space to stash essentials and spares all within easy reach. It's just right for those items you don't want to have to hunt for in frame/bar or saddlebags. And for rides that stretch into the fading light of a winter evening, reflective elements add extra visibility.
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.
