Description

The cape uses a ‘made in Italy’ direct venting membrane technology. It is 100% waterproof and is exceptionally breathable when compared to traditional PU membranes. PU membrane technology only begin to vent sweat once the fabric becomes wet. Direct venting membranes have billions of microscopic pores which instantly vent sweat, keeping you in the ‘dry zone’.

The shape and cut of the rain/ wind cape is a result of the perfect balance between freedom of movement and the reduction of fabric in specific areas to reduce wind flap/ drag. The panels have been designed to move seams away from the main rain and wind prone areas. The result is a tailored race ready, unisex, performance garment.

The fabric weight has been carefully chosen to provide additional protection for more extreme conditions, yet still allows the cape to be folded down and fit in a rear jersey pocket. This makes the cape the perfect layering ‘shell’ for both summer and winter riding. We have intentionally omitted a pocket in favour of developing a rear panel construction that allows easy access to jersey pockets. Pockets in rain wear provide an opportunity for rain seepage and also hinder the efficient folding of the garment. The cape has reflective dots and TICCC details which provide excellent visibility for other road users during poor light conditions.

Care

For best results wash at low temperatures, do not exceed 40˚C. Use a plastic free mild detergent. To maintain maximum performance do not use fabric softeners or bleach. When washed air or line dry, ideally away from direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry, wring out or iron. To further protect your TICCC kit and our planet we recommend you use the Guppyfriend washing bag.

To maintain the performance of your rain wear we suggest regular treatment with a fluorine free, vegetable based DWR

To maintain the appearance of your rain wear we suggest you keep the outer woven layer away from abrasive materials, such as velcro.

    Perfect for wet weather! Actually, perfect for dry weather too… It keeps the wind out on those days where it’s not cold enough for a thermal top!

  2. 5.0/5.0

    I have done a few longer rides in the rain with it and stayed dry under the cape. Ideal for increasing fun factor in the rain.

  3. 5.0/5.0

    I have owned several race capes over the years and this is without doubt the best. Its first outing was in a torrential downpour in Vietnam… To my amazement it kept me bone dry. I also use this when running. Beautifully simple yet eye-catching design. This product should be a staple in any cyclists wardrobe. I am roughly a 99cm chest and chose size L. Thanks TICCC!

  4. 5.0/5.0

    A fantastic piece of kit! A performance rain cape that fits perfectly (I wear a medium; arm and body length both spot on). Feels and performs as a rain cape truly should. Rolls up and fits nicely into a jersey pocket too!

  5. 5.0/5.0

    Great fit. As I’m tall & thin sometimes I struggle to find a jacket where the body & arm lengths are long enough & yet the body still offers a performance fit. I really love the extra detailing with the tight fitting cuffs so no exposed wrists. Its proven its worth & kept my dry on many wet days – you can see the beads of water effectively sitting on the jacket & rolling off.

  6. 4.0/5.0

    I have the pink version and love it for its visibility when riding during wet conditions. Apart from the looks, also functionality is high: The upper body stays completely dry 🙂 The fit is a bit wider compared to other TICCC kits (e.g. the omloop thermal long sleeve), so it’s not as aerodynamic as I expected. Therefore, I’d recommend buying it one size smaller. But still, a very good choice as it serves its purpose perfectly.
