Mavic Helium H2O jacket review
Okay, a white jacket is a scary prospect, but there’s always the washing machine – and, as we discovered, your mates can always spot you when you’re wearing one! This isn’t a cheap jacket, but it’s beautifully made from a lightweight fabric with an impeccable cut. It offers a simplicity of styling and detailed specification that’s bang on for the end use.
There are no MP3 pockets, no foldaway hoods and no fancy cuffs. This is all about a fit that follows your shape on the bike, with enough room through the shoulders so it doesn’t shift around when you do, plus a comfortable offset zip, mesh-lined ergonomically shaped collar and strategically placed vents for airflow.
