React, adapt, and ride on.
In cycling, the weather often changes faster than the front of the peloton. And just as you would have to react quickly to a shift in the break, so must you as the rain starts to fall, or the road kicks skyward. Enter the Zero RH+ Adapto Jacket, a lightweight and stash-able solution for all 365 days of weather.
Starting at the front of the body, Zero RH+ used the ultralight Airdry Gold 150 fabric for its construction. As you might expect from its name, this material is completely windproof, and accordingly, it staves off the main source of winter chills -- headwind. As for the second principle of this fabric, the dry, Airdry Gold 150 uses a three-layer, open knit construction that maintains a high-level of breathability. Essentially, the fabric creates an internal micro climate that is unique to you. So, during intense aerobic exercise, the material allows excess heat to escape from the insulation layer. And not only does this keep your temperature well regulated, it also decreases moisture accumulation as well. In summary, the Adapto is difficult to penetrate, but breathes well.
For added breathability, the rear and side panels of the jacket have been constructed from the IceDry fabric. This material is highly insulating, stretchable, and soft -- all qualities that enhance the jacket's impeccable fit. And on that note, this is where Zero RH+ really shines. The body of the jacket has been pre-shaped on an anatomic form. This means that the cut has been coordinated to the predictability of your body's movements. So, when you move, the jacket moves with you, not against your skin. And to further ensure this, the Adapto jacket features stretch panels at heavy points of articulation. Securing the fit while you're in and out of the saddle are Zero RH+'s proprietary grippers at the front and rear hem.
Now, even through the sea of translation, it's obvious that the jacket is 'adaptable.' If you've been wondering what those zippers were that run from the front to rear of the torso, that's the namesake at work. Yes, the sleeves are removable. So, if your ride starts off brisk and transforms into simply cool, remove the sleeves, and stow them away in the rear pockets. Simple as that.
To provide extra visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, the jacket features reflective accents throughout. And to store your ride essentials, Zero RH+ included three ample-sized rear pockets and one rear zippered security pocket. Additionally, the jacket's zipper utilizes a self-locking slider and is protected from drafts by a zipper garage a the neck.
The Zero RH+ Adapto Jacket is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Black/white and Red/white.
