We’ve all been there - having crested the summit of some unpronounceable mountain, you find to your great delight that 16 km of spine-tingling descent lays ahead. However, whilst warm on the way up, without a gilet or jacket to offset the onrushing wind, you’ll find that what should be a barrel roll of insane fist-pumping fun, can swiftly turn cold - real cold. In such times of need, a wind blocking cycling gilet like Giro’s Wind Vest is just the thing to keep both temperature and spirits up!
Featherlight and as such, super packable (think rear jersey pocket size), the Chrono Wind Gilet can be whipped out at need, or worn from the ride outset if things are of a chilly persuasion. Trimmed with a 2- way zipper (raising the lower zip when on the drops really does aid comfort), the Chrono boats welcome touches of reflectivity, and attractive binding at the cuffs. Tailored for a trim fit, it nevertheless has space at the rear to accommodate a full set of jersey pockets.
