Element 3.0 Jacket
Winter is a beast, and when it comes to taming it, nothing beats our Element 3.0 WINDSTOPPER® Jacket. The jacket is essentially two pieces—an insulating outer jacket and a removable liner jacket. Starting at the exterior, the jacket is made from one of the most venerable materials in the business—Gore® WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell. As its name suggests, this material is wind- and water-resistant. But what its name doesn't tell you is that it's highly efficient at insulating and managing moisture, while also remaining soft against the skin and quite breathable. At the interior, you'll find a lightweight shell that's constructed from a blend of Deflect™ and Polartec® Alpha®. When worn together, the two pieces form a systemic barrier that provides insulating warmth in the coldest of conditions. And when worn individually, the WINDSTOPPER® shell is perfectly suited for fall and light winter rides. Both pieces possess the perfect amount of stretch, which complements the articulated cycling cut of the jacket. Essentially, this all adds up to a complete freedom of movement throughout the motions of cycling, which equates to the elimination of any rubbing, pinching, or chafing. Lastly, storage duties are handled by a series of thoughtfully placed pockets. The exterior shell features a zippered chest and back pocket, as well as a rear pass-through pocket to reach the liner jacket. This piece also has ample storage, with two front zippered pockets.
