Outstanding breathability and weather protection in a super-light package
Skip to view product specifications

OneTen’s brand new ultralight Poggio performs superbly at a very good price.

Designed by the same people who did Wiggins’s skinsuit and Thorpe’s swimsuit, the Pioggia uses eVent’s lightweight fabric, with stretchy ‘Raintex’ membrane making up the stretchy fluoro side panels. 

Untaped construction minimises weight and bulk while maximising breathability. Smart seam placement meant we didn’t got sodden even when we were standing around waiting for rides to start or in bouncing rainstorms. 

Breathability is also outstanding, letting you ride flat out with only limited sweat build-up. The slightly generous body cut actually fits fine on the bike. 

Press-stud collar adjusters, stretch collar and cuffs and top quality Riri waterproof zips complete the ultralight package, which is also impressively light on your wallet. In fact, we’d give this jacket five stars in terms of value.
