The AV 100 is a super lightweight windfront jacket that can double as a jersey when paired with the appropriate base layer on milder winter or early spring days.
Lightweight, Windfront, and Breathable
The shell is a 3-layer stretch fabric that is 100% waterproof, windproof and breathable. The back is water repellent Acqua Zero Eco® treated Thunderbike™. This new version of Acqua Zero provides more protection and has a very low absorption rate so it retains less water and remains lighter than untreated fabrics. Even when soaked it maintains its breathability aiding in efficient core temperature management.
The AV 100 follows the form of the other Acqua+Vento jackets including many of the same signature features. With a high collar, long tail, aggressive ergonomic fit and plenty of reflectivity it is unmistakably Aqua+Vento.
The front panels and sleeves utilize a triple layer fabric with a 100% breathable, windproof and waterproof membrane sandwiched between the DWR treated face fabric and an ultra-light, shear lining. The result is an impermeable barrier against the elements. The membrane’s breathability allows moisture vapor to escape, facilitating core temperature management by preventing overheating.
The element blocking membrane helps to maintain a constant core temperature during rides in milder climates.
The entire jacket receives a DWR treatment, which adds an extra layer of water resistance to the garment. The treatment creates additional surface tension, suspending water beads to the outer fringe of the garment where it rolls off before having the opportunity to penetrate the fabric.
Reflective accents created via a revolutionary new refractive fabric, Pixel®, provide reflectivity without sacrificing the breathability qualities of a fabric.
