As annoying as a fair-weather friend may be, a fair-weather cycling friend is far worse. When we find ourselves alone in the rain at the pre-ride meetup, we wonder where all of the hardmen like Voigt and Cancellara have gone come winter? In their case, it's an easy answer— they're out riding with the Craft Elite Pace Jacket. Featuring an ergonomic pro fit and an exclusive material design, the Elite Pace Jacket will keep Old Man Winter off your back while you're out on the road.
Craft's Elite Pace Jacket is made from a precise blend of exclusive Craft fabrics and technologies that work in concert to provide an adaptable, ergonomic fit. The jacket achieves this by using a laminated mix of polyester and elastane fabrics; with the coup de grace being the Ventair X Wind material. As the names suggests, the fabric is not only windproof, but also waterproof and highly breathable. Additionally, the patented Thermo Cool fabric has been used throughout the jacket. Thermo Cool accentuates the insulation by using a hexa-channel fiber that keeps you cool when you're hot and hot when you're cold. Coupled with a hollow fiber outer layer, the Thermo Cool promotes thorough core insulation while providing efficient moisture transfer. For further internal temperature management, Craft has gone the extra mile and incorporated laser-cut ventilation junctures at the jacket's hotspots.
The Elite Pace Jacket not only provides exceptional insulation, but Craft also followed a strict adherence to cycling-specific and anatomical fit. This was achieved by utilizing the fabrics' four-way elasticity, and by thoughtfully placing the seems in non-abrasive positions that allow a full range of movement.The result is a contour-conforming fit that moves with your body, not against it.
The Craft Elite Pace Jacket is available in sizes from X-Small to XX-Large, and in the colors Black/white/bright red and Red/white/black.
