Designed to suit the female form 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 delivers reliable performance when faced with downpours or chilly descents A dual cuff for a neater fit and to side of the garment is a large pocket 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 though out which are doubled stitched for durability. Storm proof zip and high collar to keep you protected when the skys open. The off-centre zip to reduce collar bulk of 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 can be used as a jacket replacement in Winter.
This, our 4th generation of this rain jacket and riders love them.
*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.
