When you’re pushing on hard in technical terrain, dressing to fight cold or wet conditions can be challenging. You need to be protected from the cold wind, rain and water from the soaked trails.
You need breathability to stay comfortable as well as a light jacket that doesn’t compromise movement and end in frustration. It’s easy to see why many riders are reluctant to wear a hardshell in all but the wettest of weather.
This Rescue Active shell from Gore Bikewear is ultra-light and compact in size. Made from one of the best fabrics for high-output activity in mixed weather conditions it is a world apart from many bulky and heavily featured jackets.
