Cut for comfort in the riding position, our all new Tourmalet is the garment you reach for when the forecast looks grim but the ride looks mighty. Fully taped seaming and windproof body fabric deliver reliable performance when faced with downpours or chilly descents. A dual cuff for a neater fit, a large pocket off to one side for ease of access with gloves on and a drop tail to prevent a soaking from road spray. The front zip has a storm flap to provide extra protection for the two way YKK® zip, and despite all of these features the jacket still weighs less than 300 grams.
Our new Tourmalet evolved from the new HydraStop 2.9+ membrane. The advances in fabric technology meant we could provide even more protection with the new materials 20k/20k* and our Tourmalet would remain packable. We retained the celebrated fit and taped seams thoughout which are doubled stitched for durability. A storm proof zip and high collar keep you protected when the skies open. The off-centre zip is to reduce collar bulk if worn over jerseys. The sky blue finish with reflective highlights keep you visible. Can be worn over a base layer in spring and summer. Add a long sleeve jersey and it can be used as a jacket replacement in Winter.
This is our 4th generation of this rain jacket and riders love it.
Manufacturers typically describe the waterproof/breathability of each fabric by using two sets of numbers. The first number, in millimeters (mm) represents how waterproof the fabric is. This is 20,000 or 20k. The second number represents how breathable a fabric is. This is expressed in grams and represents how much moisture vapour (warm air/sweat) can pass through one square meter of the fabric (from the inside to the outside) in 24 hours.

The garment is standard fit to be worn all day over jersey. There is no extra flap material but is designed for space for air to circulate. Tighter fitting rain capes like our Tempest, are ideally worn for a shorter duration when a shower is encountered or a descent ridden. The Tourmalet can be worn for 30 minute shower or all day protection.
