LIGHT WIND Vest Asphalt
Versatility at its best. With the perfect synergy between technical features and the multitude of uses, the LIGHT WIND Vest is a true essential for every cyclist's wardrobe.
Store it in your jersey pocket and put it on to keep warm during long descents in the summer, use it as an additional layer on cooler days in the saddle, carry it just-in-case when riding in changeable weather conditions. The LIGHT WIND Vest offers wind protection for your chest and shoulders, breathability at the back and easy access to your jersey pockets when you need it.
Strategically placed wind block fabric on the front panels, shoulders and lower back offers adequate protection in areas exposed to wind when on-the-bike, and seamlessly combines with 37.5 mesh fabric at the back which allows all excess heat to be transferred away from your body.
Ergonomically placed access points to your jersey pockets allow you to easily reach for an energy bar or keys at the end of the ride, and feature a user friendly magnetic closure system which minimises flapping in the wind and provides additional security for your essentials.
Proprietary Ergonomic Line technology across the shoulders ensures optimal fit and comfort in the riding position while longer elasticated tail with silicone strip provides adequate coverage and features reflective line to help increase visibility in low light conditions.
37.5 Thermoregulation Technology
The 37.5 Thermoregulation Technology helps to maintain your body at the ideal core temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius and keep the micro-climate next to your skin at the ideal relative humidity of 37.5%. It's scientifically proven to increase stamina by reducing the amount of energy used to manage core temperature and improve efficiency so you use less energy to do the same amount of work.
It triggers off of humidity which is the gauge of whether you're hot or cold. When you're hot, the active volcanic sand particles embedded into the material use your body's energy to remove moisture and cool you down. When you're cold, the active particles retain body's energy to warm you up.
37.5 particles also trap odour molecules and then release them when they're washed and dried. Also, because those particles are permanently embedded in the fibre, they will last the lifetime of the garment.

Size Chart & Fit
Second Skin Design based on the cut preferred by Pro Riders optimises aerodynamics and ergonomics in an aggressive riding position. Featuring tight fitting high-stretch fabric to wrap closely around the rider's body and minimise flapping in the wind effect, and a shorter cut at the front to eliminate folding when in a racing position, the Katusha RACE Fit is focused on performance cycling.
Sizing recommendation: If you prefer a less compressive fit, many of our customers would recommend choosing one size larger than normal.
