Waterproof Cycling Clothes

Rain can stop you riding, and certainly arriving in style. Bedraggled isn’t in fashion. So we’ve created breathable, waterproof & water resistant cycling clothes that work hard in the wet, so you can arrive in style.

There's different levels of 'waterproof-ness' and 'water-resistancy' though. If you aren't clued up on the numbered waterproof rating system, it can be a little confusing. This guide to our waterproof cycling clothes will help work out what you need.


Waterproof Garments

All waterproof garments are made from fabric with a waterproof membrane. The 'waterproof-ness' of this membrane is described using a numbered rating system. Put simply, the higher the number, the more waterproof the fabric. A fabric that is rated between 6k - 15k WP will be waterproof under light to moderate rain. Think showers but not deluges. A fabric that is rated over 15k WP will be waterproof under heavy rain.

The garment also needs to have sealed seams and waterproof zips to be classed as a 'waterproof'. The breathability is important too, and uses a similar numbered rating system. Like with waterproofing, the higher the number, the more breathable the fabric is. The outer fabric may also have been treated with a water repellent, such as DWR, which stands for Durable Water Repellent. This prevents the outer fabric from becoming saturated with water. This is what causes the water to bead and roll off our jackets.

Water Resistant Garments

Our water-resistant & water-repellent garments do not have a waterproof membrane, but they are treated with a water-repellent material, such as DWR. This means that in the rain, water will bead on the fabric and roll off, preventing it from seeping through. However, if you're in very heavy rain for an extended period of time, eventually the wet may get through.
