A true hybrid piece of equipment is designed with a compact (200g) versatility that makes it a hybrid of winter jersey and light winter jacket, an indispensable go-to piece and riding companion for 3 seasons a year, and particularly on rides which foresee variable conditions. While the UF HybridShell is employed in core heat zones and the areas most affected by wind chill, the fast drying UF L1 fabric is employed in the back and underside of the forearms.
Garments constructed with RSR (Regional Sweat Rate) body mapping will be breathable in differing degrees throughout the garment according to scientific research data collected regarding the various regional sweat rates of the athlete’s body. This more strategic use of breathable panels and varying densities allows for the construction of the lowest volume garment as well as the most stable body temperature during activity.
A pre-shape fit garment is cut to have the least resistance to the athlete’s body when in the position it assumes while riding. Riders will notice that pre-shaped garments will, when hung unworn from a hanger, naturally fall towards a riding position. This means that while the wearer may feel a minor degree of strain or notice small creases in the garment when standing upright and not on the bike he or she will be most comfortable and aerodynamic and have greatest ease of motion when riding.
This high level of versatility is achieved by astute combination of two key fabrics: the first is our proprietary UFHybridShell fabric, an insulating ribbed fleece material woven with such an extraordinary density as to give the fabric windblocking values which come close to those of laminated shell windstopper fabrics. In fact the name HybridShell is given by the fabric’s ability to mimic the characteristics of a fabric with a membrane (shell) while still maintaining the advantages of breathability and elasticity (for fit) of woven fabrics.This material has also undergone a treatment before being woven for water resistance and fast drying times. While the UFHybridShell is employed in core heat zones and the areas most affected by wind chill (chest, upper back, upper arms and front of forearms), the fast drying UFL1 fabric is employed in the back and underside of the forearms.
