Tech Tuesday has arrived. Our regular feature where we get down and dirty on giving you all the insider knowledge on a load of different Muc-Off products. This week, we’re taking a look at the tech behind our new Technical Riders Jacket, that has been built to protect you from mother nature, no matter how gnarly things get.
How does the new Technical Riders Jacket protect from the elements?
It all starts with the epic 3-layer waterproof and breathable M.O.D 94 Fabric. When the weather turns and the rain comes in, our waterproofing creates a beading effect that makes water roll right off the jacket, rather than soaking in.
The excellent breathability will help keep sweat at bay, as a soaked undershirt will chill you down in no time! (Top tip, our Riders Jersey has excellent sweat-wicking properties, making it a brilliant base layer to compliment your Technical Jacket).
While water is rolling off the jacket, our taped sealed seams will make sure it can’t find its way into any gaps. We’ve left no stone unturned with keeping water at bay, by using YKK® Aquaguard® waterproof zips so you’re totally secure to stay warm and dry.
But it doesn’t stop there, as we’ve added a 3-point adjustable and detachable Storm Hood. It’s been designed to be big enough to go over the top of your helmet, so you can simply pull it up and enjoy another layer of protection from the wind, rain and mud.
And as we all know that comfort is key on a ride, we engineered the new Technical Riders Jacket with added stretch, a dropped tail and an ergonomically designed cuff. All of this gives you a super secure fit, and stops the jacket riding up anywhere, which can let in water and grime – which nobody wants when they’re out on a shred!
Make sure to keep an eye out during the EWS this season to see all our Technical Apparel being rocked by the speedy Scotsman, Lewis Buchanan. We can’t wait to see him pushing it all to its limits on the toughest trails around – bring on the mud.
That’s it for this round of Tech Tuesday. But there’s loads more rad Technical Apparel available now like our brand-new gilet, shorts, gloves, jerseys and socks – head right this way to get kitted up!
