Haute Route racers face extreme weather conditions and must adapt on the fly. It’s not only the summer heat, it’s also the driving rain and numbing cold—often in the same week and sometimes the same day. We set out to create a solution for Haute Route racers, knowing that if we can meet their demands, all cyclists can benefit.
Working with Arc’teryx, one of the most advanced, high-performance apparel makers in outdoor sports, we capitalized on their ultra-technical fabrics and attention to detail. The Cosmic Ultimate SL GTX Jacket uses a revolutionary Gore-Tex material with SHAKEDRY technology, which uses the laminate itself is the weather barrier. This makes it unbelievably lightweight and extremely breathable, giving you full protection from rain while preventing any overheating. Pair it with another piece such as our Cosmic Insulated SL Vest, and you have a system that is sleek and streamlined for maximum performance.
