Race-tight water- and windproof

The Climajet scrunches down well for easy back pocket stowage but there are no pockets, so it’s really an emergency race cape.

The super-light fabric is fully waterproof, as well as windproof, but despite the vents on the sides you soon work up a big sweat. We also found that the zip tends to leak when the heavens really open.

It doesn't seem as well thought out as Assos’s Element Zero, though the quality is still up there. Great for those with a team car following close behind with a choice of kit.
