Waterproofness is a fabric's ability to prevent rain water from passing through.
A fabric's water repellent is its ability to make water bead and/or run along its surface. The garment soaks up little or no moisture, dries more quickly, and doesn't become heavier. Water repellent can also make it more difficult for its outer surface to become dirty. Water repellent is obtained by applying a treatment to the fabric's external surface.
Our team of product designers is based at the B'Twin Village in Lille (France). All year round, we conceive and develop new products that are easy to use, look great, and have the technical features needed for your cycling experiences.
They are then mercilessly put to the test by users in the field, as we are convinced that only by subjecting our products to real world conditions, such as the ones you will experience on your bike, can we continuously improve them.
Machine wash at 86°F. Synthetics cycle. Turn the article inside out. Use a minimal amount of laundry detergent. Do not use fabric softener. Line dry in a warm, ventilated area. Do not tumble dry. Do not tumble dry. Do not bleach. Do not place on a heater to dry.
To determine whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance (test based on standard ISO 11092).
The lower its resistance, the more the fabric will let water vapor produced by the body escape, and therefore the more breathable it is.
For example: RET <9 = extremely breathable fabric.
When cycling, your speed greatly increases the sensation of cold. An outdoor temperature of 50°F will feel like 44.6°F when cycling at 15.5 mph. A windproof barrier helps prevent air from entering the garment and thus reduces the loss of heat.
A rating to compare products' environmental impact.
A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators.
Products are then given an ABCDE rating to help you easily identify products having the best environmental performance (lowest impact) by comparing different products of the same type (T-shirts, bottoms, backpacks, etc.)
Decathlon voluntarily chooses to display the environmental ratings of its products.
