VeloChampion Windproof Element Defence Spring/Autumn/Winter Cycling Gi – Velochampion

VeloChampion Windproof Element Defence Spring/Autumn/Winter Cycling Gilet

The VC Maxgear Element Defence Gilet is an Ultra-packable lightweight wind vest featuring extensive reflective detailing

For riders who like to stay as bulk-free as possible during a fast ride the Element Defence Gilet is an extremely lightweight stowable outer layer for use in spring autumn and winter conditions.

Despite weighing only 85g the Element Defence Gilet provides a vital defence against cold winds or a drop in temperature and very easily packs down for storage in a jersey pocket. Originally designed for use by racing cyclists the Element Defence Gilet is a perfect outer layer for warm-ups early-morning starts and as chest protection on fast cold descents.

A mesh rear panel allows for temperature regulation. The waist and sleeve cuffs are elasticated to ensure the gilet stays in position during hard efforts.

A large reflective rear VC logo and reflective front logo also add to the safety aspect.

Great Gilet for Autumn riding

I have toyed with getting a cycling filet for a long time so after a few colder commutes and seeing this one on sale I am very happy that I finally decided to get one. I have used it 3 times now and it really does the job well keeping my core warm at the start of my ride. It folds down nicely too and fits in my jersey pocket fine. The mesh on the back is especially appreciated as I carry a fairly hefty backpack into work. The fit is great, I usually wear Medium in most clothing and this Medium gives me a close fitting but not too tight fit. Just right.
