In the shoulder seasons, you'll find that conditions are far from ideal, but not so intense that you'll form icicles on your beard whiskers. In these times of year, you'll find a solid minimalist jacket, like our Element 1.0 Jacket, will be the ideal piece for your ride.
The jacket is made from our Element™ Soft Shell material, which is both wind- & water-resistant, as well insulating. & as the 1.0 iteration of this jacket, this fabric is placed at the front of the torso in order to provide coverage & protection from the elements where it's needed most. The fabric is also extremely lightweight & malleable, so you'll experience the perfect amount of stretch in all of the right places throughout the motions of cycling. Essentially, the combination of materials & cut add up to a lightweight, minimal barrier between you & the elements, which is perfect for fair conditions or any fall/winter riding at a hard pace.
The Element 1.0 also includes additional weather-fighting properties, like a pop collar that prevents unwanted chills & moisture from entering the jacket via the neck opening. & lastly, three rear expansion pockets & one zippered security pocket at the back handle storage duties.
