The Dynamo is very similar to the LE Jacket from Cannondale, although we're sure any similarities are purely coincidental. Made from three layer, four way stretch Firewall fabric, it's a high performance softshell that's waterproof and breathable.
It almost feels like a wetsuit but it's comfortable thanks to the stretch fabric and the whole jacket moves and extends with you as you ride. There's no elastic draws to seal out the elements. Instead the jacket relies on a figure-hugging fit and a scooped, contoured cut at the base, neck and arms. It does well in wet conditions but it's heavy and this makes it the sort of jacket that you want to keep on rather than carry. Again, like Cannondale's LE, it's a good one for the racers and roadies and year-round riding.
