Proven protection for unpredictable weather.
Nothing beats spirited rides through budding landscapes of spring greenery and autumn jaunts across hills of fiery foliage. Unfortunately, transitional spring and fall seasons are plagued with unpredictable weather, often leaving cyclists hunkering down alongside the road in search of refuge when quick-moving fronts barrel down. Repelling the nastiest spring and fall weather without sacrificing breathability, the Gore Bike Wear Men's Element Gore-Tex Active Jacket protects your upper body from oncoming storms while facilitating the rapid expulsion of perspiration. Gore-Tex Active retains the legendary waterproofing of standard Gore-Tex membranes while significantly boosting breathability for a protective barrier that keeps the body pleasantly dry from perspiration build-up. And like its dependable Gore-Tex siblings, Gore-Tex Active reliably performs through a season's worth of strenuous rides in demanding conditions.
Offering a pleasantly relaxed feel with freedom to layer, the jacket's Comfort fit easily slides over long-sleeve cycling jerseys and thermal-management layers. Its longer rear hem increases coverage when you're dropped over the bars. The adjustable drawstring, elasticized hem seals out cold drafts when you're riding in especially brisk conditions. Following suit, the front-zip closure sports an underflap to keep cool air from sneaking inside and robbing precious body heat. Hook-and-loop cuff fasteners easily adjust for a fine-tuned fit over riding gloves or training watches. Reflective piping, print, and logo details brilliantly boost visibility in low-light conditions. Holding riding essentials, the zippered Napoleon pocket makes easy work of storing snacks, extra cash, and keys. For convenient storage and transport, the Element stows within its roomy back-zip pocket.
