Specialized Element 1.0 Jacket 2017
Brought to you by The Bike Shop
In the shoulder seasons, you'll find that conditions are far from ideal, but not so intense that you'll form icicles on your beard whiskers. In these times of year, you'll find a solid minimalist jacket, like our Element 1.0 Jacket, will be the ideal piece for your ride.
The jacket is made from our Element™ Soft Shell material, which is both wind- & water-resistant, as well insulating. & as the 1.0 iteration of this jacket, this fabric is placed at the front of the torso in order to provide coverage & protection from the elements where it's needed most. The fabric is also extremely lightweight & malleable, so you'll experience the perfect amount of stretch in all of the right places throughout the motions of cycling. Essentially, the combination of materials & cut add up to a lightweight, minimal barrier between you & the elements, which is perfect for fair conditions or any fall/winter riding at a hard pace.
The Element 1.0 also includes additional weather-fighting properties, like a pop collar that prevents unwanted chills & moisture from entering the jacket via the neck opening. & lastly, three rear expansion pockets & one zippered security pocket at the back handle storage duties.
Element™ Soft Shell knit fabric is positioned at the front of the torso, & it provides exceptional levels of insulation & breathability, while also being quite adept at resisting both wind & water.

Pop collar seals out the cold & adds a little extra protection from the elements.
Reflective elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
DeflectUV 50+ protects the skin against harmful UV rays.
