Protect yourself from the cold in winter with Specialized jackets and rain jackets, available in various sizes and colors to be able to practice cycling in any condition.
Specialized cycling jackets are those garments that require a purchase in more detail, since your choice for the components and features that make it up will depend to a large extent that we enjoy our bike during the cold months of the year.
Some small recommendations when choosing your jacket are:
✔️ Check the material with which they are made, there are many finishes depending on the outside temperature to which they are intended, also many of them include a water and wind repellent coating to a greater or lesser extent, such as our Specialized Element RBX jacket in version for men and women. Very important is also the capacity of the tissue that conforms it to expel sweat and the excess temperature inside our body, we must try to avoid that our inner shirt or our jersey end up soaked with sweat.
✔️ Check that you have protection against the cold in the neck area, it is also advisable extra protection in the lower back to maintain impermeability when we pedal standing.
✔️ If in the cuffs they carry some embedded material that favors their grip on the wrist, silicone band type, it will prevent the sleeves from rising easily and also that you get into the air.
✔️ The quantity and arrangement of the pockets is also important, some of them include waterproof zippers, keep in mind that they should be easily opened and closed since you will handle them with long and thicker gloves than usual.
✔️ Many light or thin Specialized jackets have holes in the back that allow access to the pockets of the jersey in case of carrying it. In many areas of our territory the choice of a good jacket along with a quality thermal shirt makes the use of a long jersey unnecessary.
✔️ It is becoming increasingly necessary and it is recommended that cycling garments include some reflective element that improves our visibility.
Our best-known Specialized jackets are the Therminal and the Element, which incorporate comfort and performance technologies such as the SL Soft that applies a hydrophilic treatment with which it is possible to transfer the sweat to the outside keeping our body dry, waterproof membranes or the revolutionary Platinum polyester 241 WR that avoids the sensation of stiffness when wearing the jacket making it more flexible and therefore comfortable on the bike.
You can carry it folded in your backpack in the back pocket of your jacket, it sure does not bother you much, it is a garment that can save you from many troubles, not only with the related thing to rain but to the wind with very early departures and may the cold catch you somewhat off guard, like our Specialized Deflect RBX Elite Hi-Vis raincoat.
