Inoculate yourself against extreme weather with the Antidote. Mechanical venting at your chest and arms keeps you cool at speed, while the tape-sealed three layer HydroFoil™ Plus fabric keeps the big bad wolf at bay.
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.

▹ Which jacket is best for me?
▹ How waterproof is it?
▹ How breathable is it?
Finally stopped procrastinating and brought a waterproof jacket for cycling. Why have I waited so long to do this I ask myself after my first ride with my new Ground Effect Antidote Jacket? I absolutely love it and now wonder how I went so long without it. Defiantly recommend this amazing Jacket. Great for wet or windy weather, as keeps both elements out and keeps me warm and dry, love it!!
I don't know I am wearing the Antidote. It has kept me dry in drizzle. The wind vents are great. The sleeves are too big/wide, but that means it is easy to take the jacket off, and there are Velcro straps to tighten the sleeves. The orange colour is a great safe colour.
Love the fact that the jacket is so breathable. Also a secret find of a inner tube patch in the pocket.
I bought this for my better half and she loves it. Perfect for MTB rides in sh*t weather, warming up before winter races and just kicking around in. She's a gear snob and I was a bit worried when I bought this as a present but I needn't have worried. Her other mainstream brand jackets have ended up in the bottom of the wardrobe. The missus is 179cm, slim 70kg with long gangly arms and the medium fits her perfectly, as it does me at 178cm/75kg
Bought it last year and only worn it a few time & it's great for stopping wind & rain (light rain to date). The only error I made was in choosing the wrong colour ( I chose Royal Blue ) as it's note a safe colour in low light. My husband has the Orange and it stands out in all conditions.
