A lightweight, breathable shield.
Windy days always present a challenge while you're out on a ride, and they somehow seem to happen more often on the days you're riding solo, with no one to draft off of as you push through headwinds in slow motion. At the very least, a wind jacket can make those days much less miserable as it protects you from the gusts without allowing you to overheat. With a streamlined shape and ultralight, packable construction, Giro's Chrono Wind Jacket fits that description aptly. Crafted primarily from stretchy nylon, the Chrono Wind Jacket was designed to follow your body movements in the saddle rather than feel like an ill-fitting poncho, and when accented by airy mesh panels along the back and sides, the jacket still draws moisture away from your jersey and allows airflow to keep you cool.
The jacket includes cuffs to block the wind and a two-way front zipper to give you ample control over ventilation. Giro adds reflective accents along the back of the jacket as a subtle reminder of your presence on the roads, and the entire jacket can be packed up and easily stowed in a jersey pocket in case temperatures rise or the wind calms down mid-ride.
