Q36.5 R.Shell Protection X Cycling Rain Jacket
This is a rain jacket designed in the spirit of the very first cycling gilets and professional alpine flash rain jackets. Welcome this true emergency friend designed to do only one thing: protect you perfectly and accompany you on every single ride thanks to its minimal weight.
The R. Shell Protection is constructed from a completely new proprietary 3-layer fabric, the UF 75ShellTM. The outer layer is an extremely compact, high-density woven polyamide, while the second layer is an avant-garde hydrophobic polyamide membrane with very high breathability (RET 4) and a 15.000 mm/l waterproof rating.
Every weak point of the traditional rain jacket’s paneling has been aggressively addressed: the collar area is hermetically sealed, all seams which compromise waterproofing has been moved to the least exposed areas of the jacket and tapered for a sealed protection, wrist cuffs are elasticated for a snug fit and easy access to jersey pockets is guaranteed by two subtle slits in the back.
We have meticulously thought of every single detail to prevent any water infiltration; the water-repellent zipper is covered by waterproof fabric and a reflective waterproof insert on the back keeps the jacket in place.
How to use the shell?
The R. Shell Protection jacket is versatile, it is designed to protect the high-intensity rider from sudden flashes of foul weather with the least amount of weight and volume. Weighing in at only a little more than a summer jersey, it’s so light and compact you don’t even notice it in your back pocket.
