The original EQUIPE RS Rain Jacket hit reset on the rain shell as we knew it. No longer were we forced into flapping wind shells or bulky winter offerings. It was constructed with a superlight, stretchy waterproof shell fabric that complemented our aerodynamic race jersey underneath—a truly impressive defensive layer that checked all the right boxes. So why mess with a good thing? We didn’t. We just enhanced it with a few features that make it perform even better on the road.
To start, the Rain Jacket EVO is now available in a new fluoYellow colorway for boosted visibility in those darker, stormy conditions. It retains the same racingFit and Schloss Tex of the original, the latter of which is our lab-developed, race-tested 3L waterproof softshell. With its sandwiched hydrophilic membrane and flexible, breathable composition, Schloss delivers on all fronts. Plus, at just 170g, it stows in a rear pocket in the same unobtrusive manner as those paper-thin wind shells.
The jacket borrows numerous cues from our legendary sturmPrinz, such as the taped wrists and neck to minimize friction and the appreciated pocket slots that give you access to your jersey pockets beneath. We’ve also updated the double-slider zipper with a more robust, glove-friendly version, which gives you the option to ventilate from the top or bottom. Other updates include a new waterBlock hem, which sheds water and provides a stay-put fit, along with a bold reflective logo on the rear panel’s Reflex strip.
Schloss Tex: Our lightest 3L waterproof softshell. Stretchy, extremely comfortable, and highly packable material that incorporates a hydrophilic membrane. Weight: 90g/m2; Breathability: MVP 27,000g/m2/24h; Water Column: >10,000mm; Elasticity: 2-way stretch.
Reflex: Reflective strip on the rear of the jacket boosts visibility in low-light and extreme weather conditions.
Pocket Slots: Two openings on the lower rear panel give you access to your jersey or jacket pockets, and serve as ventilation slots.
Taped Seams: Found along the front, shoulders, rear panels, and zipper, these increase the watertight properties of the jacket.
Extended Rear Panel: A drop-tail protects your lower back from road spray and dirt.
waterBlock Hem: Silicon dots on the inside lock out the elements and provide a secure fit, while the laminated silicon exterior sheds water.
Double-Slider Zipper: Ventilate from the top or bottom with ease. Robust construction with oversized pull tabs for intuitive, glove-friendly operation.
DWR: Treated with our Durable Water Repellent treatment to add one more level of insurance against the elements.
racingFit: A fit that is tighter and slightly more compressive than our alternative regularFit and comfortFit options. It may feel restrictive out of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding, resulting in improved comfort and less drag.
Composition: 91%PL 7%PA 2%EA
