Specifically developed for high aerobic activities, HydroFoil™ Plus combines a lightweight ripstop nylon shell with a composite membrane that is completely waterproof, totally windproof and extremely breathable. The outer fabric is the latest new-generation Pertex® Shield+ membrane. It is more than twice as breathable as most other quality waterproof-breathable fabrics, and has a small amount of stretch allowing a closer fit. The outer fabric is treated with a durable water repellent finish that encourages rain to bead up and roll off, while there is a lightweight tricot mesh on the inside for greater durability and improved moisture dispersion.
Lightweight Vortex™ softshell combines a highly water resistant, windproof, breathable membrane with a smooth stretch exterior and durable water repellant finish. Not quite the same 'industrial-strength' waterproofness as HydroFoil™ but Vortex™ provides highly effective protection from light rain and cold winds. With their body hugging stretch fit and external rear pockets, Vortex™ softshell tops let you travel light 'n' fast through a broad range of conditions.
microFoil™ Shell fabric constructed from 100% nylon micro fibres, tightly woven to block wind with a light coating to resist drizzle. The ultra-fine yarn is silk-like to touch but retains breathability. The outer surface is buffed to achieve a natural 'peached finish'. Pertex® Microlight.
▹ Riding Tops
A lightweight summer fabric packed with technology to keep you cool and dry as. The bi-component knit backs a sharp-looking polyester outer with a smooth layer of nano-charcoal polyester against your skin. Nano-charcoal disperses sweat to accelerate evaporation and is naturally anti-microbial to fight nasty smells. The fabric dries at the speed of light - great when reduced to hand washing on tour - and even performs its quick-drying magic in the wet under a rain jacket.
A bi-component thermal fabric combining 51% merino wool and 49% polyester. Superfine 18.5 micron New Zealand merino wicks sweat away from your skin while the polyester provides a durable, non-pill outer. Lightweight at just 160gm/m2 and machine washable. Developed by Ground Effect and knitted for us in New Zealand.
WindFoil™ combines the insulative benefits of a polyester micro-fleece liner with a smooth, highly water resistant, softshell exterior. A totally windproof, yet highly breathable membrane is sandwiched between the inner and outer fabrics providing effective protection in cold, dry conditions.
A non-windproof version of WindFoil™ - Thermostat™ is a lightweight, quick-drying laminated fleece with a water repellant finish. Constructed from a knitted polyester face fabric with brushed polyester fleece on the inside. Its hyper-soft finish makes it delicious to wear against your skin. Yum.
InfraRed A thin, form-fitting stretch polyester base layer that improves the thermal performance of any riding top. Brushed polyester fabric dries super fast while magic is performed by the FarRed™ mineral print against your skin - reducing 'far infrared' heat loss for increased circulation and comfort.
