Pivotal protection from a packable piece.
Ascending alpine canyons among the transitioning fall foliage is a fantastic treat for us cyclists, but fall weather lends its self to unpredictability — from icy gusts that penetrate your core, sudden downpours, and even flurries of snow whipping across the road. Arm yourself with the perfect packable jacket to shield you from the harsh elements with the Gore Bike Wear Rescue Bike Gore-Tex jacket. Synonymous with waterproof among outdoor enthusiasts, a Gore-Tex membrane creates an essential barrier between the weather and your skin, and durable fabric holds up to the rigorous demands of cycling.
Polyamide fabric is tear and abrasion resistant, and quickly wicks moisture away from the body, its naturally stretchy properties lend to a large range of motion and comfortable snug fit, reducing excess fabric flapping in the wind. When coated with Gore-Tex , the fabric keeps water and snow rolling off of you effortlessly, and cuts through the wind like a hot knife through butter, keeping your core dry and warm. Reflective accents are critical to safe cycling when the lighting is low or weather is inclement, and Gore equips the Rescue Bike Gore-Tex jacket with hi-vis yellow accents, and reflective accents on the front, back and sleeves to keep you visible to approaching vehicles. A small chest pocket allows for space to stow essentials, or packing the jacket inside of its self so you can easily stuff it into the back of your jersey pocket or saddle bag.
