SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR CITY CYCLING
The 500 city jacket has been designed for urban cyclists riding in the rain. Its shape means it covers your lower back, arms, neck and wrists when you're sat on your bike, protecting you from the cold and wind. There are vents under the arms to help air circulate. You can stuff it into its back pocket to make it easy to carry.
Fitted cut that gives urban cyclists the coverage they need. You can wear your helmet over the hood.
A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproofing resistance of 2000 mm can resist the pressure from 2,000 mm of water (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting around 2 hours, i.e. 6 to 12 cm of rain in 1 to 2 hours). Our jacket is partially watertight, i.e. in areas that are most exposed to the rain
Hydrophilic coating (RET = 12): limits condensation inside the garment. To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapor produced by the body escape, and the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric.
