Q36.5 Cycling Vest L1 Essential
The Q36.5 gilet eliminates the distinction between the two categories with a hybrid 4-season 137g piece of equipment. This is achieved primarily through the use of the UFHybridShell material, a thermal ribbed fleece material which, while constructed without a membrane (which would confer wind or waterproofing qualities) is woven, on its outer side, with such an extraordinarily high density so as to create a wind resistance comparable to that of a traditional soft shell fabric, while maintaining a high degree of breathability.
Sensitive riders will immediately appreciate the advantages on long descents, where the sweat soaked jersey is able to wick through the gilet and properly dry, an entirely novel sensation for riders used to the gilets currently available on the market.
The material has also undergone a treatment before being woven (as opposed to a ‘finish’ employed on the fabric, choice which allow the threads to maintain their natural characteristics) for water resistance and fast drying times.
Cut on the same fit block as the Short Sleeve L1 jersey. No rear pockets but two invisible slits for accessing rear pockets of jersey or jacket worn underneath.
Cam Lock 3mm Reflex.
