G-Shield Jersey 2016
Protection from the Elements From Winter into Spring
“With the addition of a vest, this ensemble has carried me from the low 50s (10 Celsius) up to 70 degrees (21 Celsius) comfortably...With the addition of the leg warmers, I could easily ride into the 40s." - RedKitePrayer
Part of our AV or Acqua+Vento (Water and Wind) Line, this is the ultimate foul weather jersey when the rain starts to fall and the wind starts to blow.
The G-Shield Collection uses the newest fabrics and technologies including the environmentally friendly Acqua Zero Eco™ water repellent treatment to take you from fall through winter and into spring in comfort.
Who's it for?
For the rider who trains in cool wet conditions or high precipitation climates with frequent intense interval efforts and demands an aerodynamic, lightweight, warm and formfitting jersey.
The protective Acqua Zero Eco™ treatment bonds with the fibers of the Super Roubaix™ jersey fabric on a nano level creating a combination that is ultra wind and water resistant and doesn't wash out over time. The soft inner pile of the Super Roubaix™ will keep you warm and dry while the exterior treatment will keep moisture at bay and will resist lycra's natural tendency of becoming saturated and heavy. This jersey is ideally suited for cyclists who want to stay as warm and dry as possible when the roads get slick.
The protective treatment also allows the G-Shield clothing to repel water with a very low absorption rate so the garments retain less water under a heavy downpour and remain lighter than untreated fabrics. Even when soaked the G-Shield garments retain their breathability aiding in efficient core temperature management.
Reflective accents on the sleeve cuff and duck-tail of the jersey created via a revolutionary new refractive fabric, Pixel®, provides reflectivity without sacrificing the breathable qualities of the jersey. The highly reflective Pixel™ material is added to all garments in the G-Shield Collection for high visibility in inclement weather and low light conditions.
