Innovative DEFEND+ waterproof technology
What does it take to create the best waterproof cycling gear? Our new pioneering fabric achieves this. Find out how in this article.
Is this the best waterproof cycling kit yet? DEFEND+ is the new standard in breathable waterproof technology.
Premium Performance is in our DNA, and now it's in our cycling gear. Tested extensively in the grizzliest conditions, the jacket and pants are made to withstand the worst of the weather without weighing you down.
The new electro-spun technology allows us to create highly waterproof products with absolute freedom of movement and packability. The ripstop fabric allows air to permeate through the fibres without compromising your protection against the elements.
The harsh reality
A lot of waterproof clothing doesn’t stand the test of time. They’re not breathable, which means you overheat when you exercise, and the taped seams often peel. A fabric that breathes in sync with your heartbeat is the ideal solution to enjoying the great outdoors.
A waterproof rating of 10,000mm ensures a robust barrier between you and the elements. The all too familiar boil-in-the-bag feeling of many waterproofs is a thing of the past with the exceptional breathability rating.
This pioneering fibre has allowed us to create the best cycling jacket for harsh weather.
