The AV Extreme is an incredibly lightweight jacket that provides the ultimate in warmth and protection from the elements.
Extreme Comfort in Extreme Conditions
Utilizing three independent layers, the wind and waterproof AV Extreme is designed to keep you comfortable in extreme cold and inclement weather and during high intensity training while allowing maximum breathability. When riding at a lower intensity it can be combined with an appropriate base layer and/or jersey to extend its usability.
The external shell of the AV Extreme Jacket uses eVent® DV Alpine™, a wind and waterproof membrane featuring eVent’s Direct Venting™ technology. Specifically engineered to keep you in the ‘dry zone’, a steady state of core temperature and humidity, DV Alpine™ controls the wild swings your body goes through to stay in balance during hard efforts in extreme conditions.
The Polartec® Alpha 60 mid layer, originally developed for the U.S. Special Forces, provides superior heat retention and moisture management while the innermost layer supports the outer layers and pulls moisture away from the body.
Who's it for?
For the rider who trains through the coldest winter months with frequent intense interval efforts and demands an aerodynamic, lightweight, and breathable jacket. The Aqua+Vento Extreme Winter Jacket is for any cyclist looking to maintain comfort in cold and wet winter weather.
The entire outer surface of the jacket receives a DWR treatment which adds an extra layer of water resistance to the garment. The treatment creates additional surface tension, suspending water beads to the outer fringe of the garment where it rolls off before having the opportunity to penetrate the fabric.
The outer layer of eVent® DV Alpine™ fabric is 100% breathable, waterproof and wind resistant due to the internal membrane that creates an impermeable barrier against the elements. eVent’s Direct Venting™ technology allows vapor to escape facilitating Core Temperature management by preventing overheating.
The mid-layer throughout the entire jacket is Alpha 60™, a highly breathable micro fleece originally developed for the U.S. Special Forces, with heat retaining fibers. This allows the jacket to use the rider’s body heat to create an insulating pocket of air to help maintain optimal core temperature.
The innermost layer of the jacket is a mesh that works to support the outer layers. It pulls moisture away from the body where it can escape through the breathable outer layers.
Reflective accents created via a revolutionary new refractive fabric, Pixel®, provides reflectivity without sacrificing the breathable qualities of the fabric.
