Not to be confused with a lightweight emergency vest, the Women’s DYORA RS Spring/Fall Aero Cycling Gilet is a core body protector designed from the ground up to keep you comfortable when making race-pace efforts in changeable weather. And if you need to wear it all day, it’s no problem, it easily deals with swings in weather conditions. Its ability to ensure you’re neither too hot (and hence too sweaty) or too cold (so you’ll never quite get comfortable) is down to two highly functional fabrics. First, a three-layer softshell is used to the front. This features a membrane to block bitterly cold winds and to shrug off road spray while also holding in your body heat. Meanwhile, the back of the gilet is treated to a lighter, more breathable fabric. The open-knit structure is quick to wick away sweat and is also highly breathable to allow warm, humid vapour escape, leaving you drier and more comfortable when the race is really on. As a race garment, the Women’s DYORA RS Spring/Fall Aero Cycling Gilet is stripped down to reduce weight, maintain aerodynamics and fit seamlessly with your race kit. Raw-cut hems are used throughout to achieve a smooth fit and pre-shaped panels give a beautifully snug and aero finish. A double slider front zipper completes the gilet, allowing you to maintain aerodynamics up top while ventilating from the bottom.
