With a further refined fit for 2020, the new Softshell jacket draws on over six years of development and testing to create a winter jacket versatile enough to meet the needs of the most demanding cyclist, covering a broad range of temps and conditions. We started with an entirely new pattern, working to balance a trim, flap-free fit, with room to layer and full mobility and comfort.
We drew inspiration from touring motorcycle jackets and their shaped sleeves, articulated shoulders/chest and curved back. The result is a silhouette that effortlessly fits in the riding position.
We partnered with eVent, a leader in high performance membranes, to develop our proprietary three-layer softshell, incorporating their Direct Vent stretch membrane with Primaloft performance yarn backer and durable stretch woven and DWR treated face. The result is a truly breathable softshell that has the ability to manage moisture and keep the internal climate warm, but dry -- a critical equation for long winter miles. Designed for temperatures from freezing to 50F and capable of warding off all but the most torrential downpours, thanks to it‚Äôs 10K waterproof membrane, it‚Äôs a one-jacket solution to winter riding. And, by combining the Softshell with our Alpha Long sleeve, the two-piece system easily covers the bravest of souls comfortably down to the single digits (without the risk of breaking a sweat).

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain
its performance, fit and quality. It‚Äôs important to consider these
instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel,
not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against
manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it.
You‚Äôll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will
improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86¬∞F (30¬∞C) with like colors: Cooler
temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially
lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong
detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the
garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments
mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on
stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your
cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don‚Äôt do it. Heat can
damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra
(Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and
support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage
How do your jackets fit?
Our jackets are patterned in the riding position, with a tight fit across
the chest and arms with a more forward position. This is intentional to
reduce flapping and extra fabric across the chest while riding. When
standing, the jacket will feel tight across the chest, shoulders and
torso. The arm length might appear long as well. However, the intended fit
is tailored for on-the-bike positioning where the shoulders and torso no
longer feel tight and the extra arm length hits the wrists in the
appropriate spot. Constructed without extra fabric to flap around - it
should fit tight over your jersey (with enough room for a long sleeve and
base layer), but shouldn‚Äôt appear baggy. We select fabrics that have some
elasticity to allow for freedom of movement even with a tailored fit to
accommodate some range of fit within each size.
