World-Tour proven waterproof shell

Whilst riding into a snowstorm on the Passo di Gavia is not advisable, the Pro Team Race Cape is a waterproof yet breathable outer shell that will keep out the worst of the weather. Made of a highly technical performance fabric by Polartec and tailored for a close ‘race fit’, it’s perfect for riding hard or racing in wet weather without overheating.

The same bright red colour as the jacket Andy rode towards glory over the Gavia, this limited edition version features several nods to that mythic mountain stage of the 1988 Giro. The names of the start and finish towns of the stage feature on the left sleeve while the right sleeve sports an icon commemorating the 71st edition of the Giro. A prominent reflective Gavia ‘88 graphic on the chest combines with a reflective logo and tabs on the rear for added visibility.

Fully taped seams provide complete rain protection while a small zip pocket on the left side of the jacket makes for easy access to an energy bar or gel. The zip has a textured puller for easy use when wearing gloves, and the zipped cuffs make it easy to remove the jacket while on the bike. Once removed, the jacket packs down into a compact bundle and fits in a jersey pocket. A dropped tail keeps road spray off the back of your jersey, and the fabric has a slight stretch to allow the jacket to keep its shape over fully-loaded pockets.
