Finisseur Core Peloton Windbreaker Jacket
A windbreaker jacket is always a must-have for the cyclist who wants to enjoy their passion all year round. Although they may seem irrelevant, since they do not have the same technology or technical fabrics as winter garments, for example, they do still play a really important role in making us feel comfortable on the bike when the wind blows hard.
In order to explain these benefits in more detail, we tested the Finisseur Core Peloton Windbreaker Jacket, simple, lightweight and very compact with outstanding performance.
This jacket does not exceed 145g in size L. This can give us an idea of its lightness and the feeling you get when wearing it, or rather, that you don’t get, because you hardly notice that you’re wearing it because of just how light it is.
This lightness is due to its construction, based on a thin 100% polyester fabric that keeps the wind out and protects us from possible chills.
For the wind, not for the cold
It should be noted that this jacket is very thin and therefore, it is only designed to protect us from the wind. Its fabric does not have filaments or a technical layer that retains the temperature, therefore, this jacket is not warm, it does not protect us from the cold.
The wind is responsible for the thermal sensation when we ride a bike at high speed and even with a moderate or warm ambient temperature, we can feel cold. This also occurs when our skin is wet with sweat and we face a descent on the road, for example, where high speeds are reached. In this situation, the wind, again, makes it feel much colder than it really is. To avoid this effect produced by the wind, there are practical garments such as the Finisseur Core Peloton Windproof Jacket that you can also carry folded in any pocket of your jersey, hydration backpack or other place where you carry your belongings on the bike.
Finally, a windproof jacket like this one is relatively breathable. Its fabric does not let the wind through and to some extent, also hinders the passage of air from inside to outside of the garment, therefore, if we generate some sweat, we can feel a little overwhelmed with it by not sweating too much. That is why its use is more limited to descents or moments in which we pedal softly or only when we face a lot of wind.
A more than suited fit
The pattern design of the jacket is rather close fitting. It is close-fitting, but not extremely so, as this garment will always be worn over other garments such as a jersey or thin winter jacket, for example. For this reason, we do not recommend choosing a size that is too tight for your body dimensions. It is not necessary to choose two sizes bigger than what we usually wear, otherwise, it would create air pockets and a certain sail effect when pedalling against the wind. The most sensible thing to do is to choose the size that we usually wear in our clothes, without trying to choose a smaller size because we want to go too tight or a larger one because we want to go too loose.
The Finisseur Core Peloton Windbreaker Jacket has simple but very effective elastic cuffs to prevent air from entering through the sleeve cuffs, as well as elastic at the waist for the same purpose.
Who it is for?
For those who are looking for a garment that will protect them from the wind on long descents on the road, to avoid getting cold on windy autumn or spring days. A garment that you can carry in your pocket, that is light and comfortable.
