This long sleeve mid-layer is designed for cold weather riding. Cut from Italian thermal ‘Roubaix’, brushed on the inside for a soft and cosy feel, the breathability and insulating properties of this material will benefit you in harsher winter conditions. Named after the Paris–Roubaix race, Roubaix fabric is tried and tested by pros and amateurs alike. The fit has been developed for female body shapes, with side-panels helping it to fit your form and stay secure when moving. The fabric is compressive but not too snug to allow for extra winter under-layers. There is a three-pocket cargo layout on the jersey’s rear panel with a zip-up valuables pouch; iridescent reflective trim; Vislon® durable zips and a silicone gripper at the hem.
About Roubaix fabric
This fabric was originally developed from skiing and was used for a more insulating stretch fabric for harsh cycling conditions. Brushed on the inside for a soft, cosy feel, the breathability and insulating properties of this material are complemented by the way it is produced. The inner face is brushed for a fleece like finish, and the outside is tightly knitted and smooth.
About iridescent reflectivity
Kalf’s iridescent reflective trims and chevrons offer a really important function during the darker winter months, as well as a unique aesthetic: Positioned in areas where there is large rotation such as the wrists and calves, their reflective properties are maximised, helping drivers and other road users acknowledge you.
