Bionicon Softshell jacket review£149.00

Individual advanced coat

BikeRadar score4/5

Bionicon’s clothing has a distinctive Euro flavour, but the more we use it, the more we really like this high-tech coat.

Built with a Schöller 3XDry Softshell, it’s got a unique, almost iridescent surface sheen and the unbrushed interior feels cold and clammy when you first put it on.

Not only does it shrug off heavy rain showers, but trail muck doesn’t seem to stick either. It’s outstandingly breathable,keeping you dry and cosy.

Cord adjusters at hem and sleeve ends stop draughts and it’s super stretchy, so it’ll fit over armour without restricting movement.

The twin ended zip from cuff to armpit gives massive core cooling options. Proper easy running zips all round are way better than sticky ‘waterproof’ ones, and you get twin hand and chest pockets too.

The downsides are the hefty weight and price, but if you’ve got the money then this is a proper cutting-edge coat.
