For the most demanding winter conditions that send most cyclists into retreat mode—or back to the rollers—the Ultraz Jacket is ready to get on with it outside, right where you belong. At the wind-facing front panel, we used our NEOS Ultra textile—a lightweight 2L softshell with PU bonded membrane that’s water-resistant and 100% windproof—to ensure this element-facing section of your upper body remains fully protected from snow, rain, road spray, biting winds, and low temperatures. We then turned up the heat by mating this Ultra membrane with our highly insulating, breathable brushed RX, ensuring your core remains dry and warm. NEOS Light was added to the tops of the arms and shoulders, with a light brushed treatment on the interior for added protection and comfort.
By strategically applying two types of NEOS membranes to the Ultraz, we’ve ensured you get the right amount of protection where you need it, while simultaneously maintaining breathability and increasing weight-savings throughout. The position our bodies take on the bike—combined with the intended riding conditions—inform these material selections, which is why you’ll notice breathable paneling on the undersides of the arms and back. It’s all done with intent, knowing that deep-winter riding calls for absolute attention to detail in how your apparel fits and functions.
