Less is more when it comes to layering for racing—an art that’s honed through years and years of pedaling with a number pinned to your back. Too many layers, and you burn up; too few, and your core stays chilled and your muscles and joints fight to stay up to temp. Lucky for us, our product team and test riders are well versed in this area.
Unlike your standard paper-thin emergency wind vest, the Aero Gilet is specifically tuned for the unique demands of full-gas efforts in constantly changing weather conditions. To accomplish this, we began with two primary fabrics: a highly technical, three-layer softshell for the front—called 2XS—and a lighter, more breathable textile in the back—the time-tested Push Pull we use to build our jersey pockets. 2XS the newest member of our Stratagon family, which is a flexible, membrane-equipped textile that blocks chilling winds and road spray, while also locking in that precious body heat around your core. Push Pull’s open-knit structure is super stretchy and lightweight, resulting in a breathable and moisture wicking back panel from top to bottom.
As a race garment, the gilet needed to be stripped down in order to: reduce weight, stay aerodynamic, and seamlessly integrate with warmers and other layers. We accomplished this with raw-cut hems throughout and with pre-shaped panels, resulting in a layer-friendly core barrier that ensures your upper body remains warm and shielded for the duration of your race.
