    Cycling Vest L1 Essential olive green

    The first cycling Gilet was introduced in the 1980s, shortly after the advent of laminated ‘shell’ fabrics.

    From the very beginning this piece of clothing was imagined and developed specifically for Professional riders as the maximum expression of versatility and essentiality; a true ‘emergency friend’ capable of offering a broad range of protective features with minimum volume. Over time the Gilet has conjugated itself into two distinct categories: the windproof/rainproof Gilet and the thermal Gilet, used as protection against the cold.

    The Q36.5 gilet eliminates the distinction between the two categories with a hybrid 4-season 137g piece of equipment. This is achieved primarily through the use of the UF Hybrid Shell material, a thermal ribbed fleece material which, while constructed without a membrane (which would confer wind or waterproofing qualities) is woven, on its outer side, with such an extraordinarily high density so as to create a wind resistance comparable to that of a traditional soft shell fabric, while maintaining a high degree of breathability.

    Sensitive riders will immediately appreciate the advantages on long descents, where the sweat soaked jersey is able to wick through the gilet and properly dry, an entirely novel sensation for riders used to the gilets currently available on the market.

    The material has also undergone a treatment before being woven (as opposed to a ‘finish’ employed on the fabric, choice which allow the threads to maintain their natural characteristics) for water resistance and fast drying times.

    Cut on the same fit block as the Short Sleeve L1 jersey.  No rear pockets but two invisible slits for accessing rear pockets of jersey or jacket worn underneath.

    Cam Lock 3mm Reflex.

UF Hybrid Shell

The UF Hybrid Shell takes its name from the fabric’s ability to mimic the performance of a laminated shell fabric without the use of a membrane, using high density weaving techniques (an expertise which Q36.5 has been the first – and as yet only brand – to develop in the cycling clothing sector) to produce a natural windbreaker barrier with extremely low fabric weight and volume (190 g/m²). This allows for jackets to maintain excellent breathability (extremely important in high intensity physical activity such as cycling) and the stretch needed to preserve the ergogenic and compressive fit that is so characteristic of the entire Q36.5 range.

Ergogenic pattern

An Ergogenic Pattern garment has been designed in such a way as that all panels and fabrics are tuned to support specific musculature groups during sporting activity. Garments designed with Ergogenic Patterns will be distinguished by their extremely snug but not constrictive feel and increased stability during the pedalling motion, as the fabric, cut and panel alignment support a balanced position and accordingly reduce muscular fatigue on longer or more intense rides.

Silver thread

The introduction of the silver thread may be understood as a further fine-tuning of the fabric’s original raison d’être in which the extraordinary natural properties of this material are carefully exploited in a performance-wear context. When activity becomes intense and the body emits an excess of heat and moisture with must be dealt with through conduction, evaporation and convection, the fabric instead benefits from silver’s high thermal conductivity. The pure silver thread’s greatest performance advantage is not given by its anti-bacterial or conductive qualities but by it qualities of protection from electrostatic and magnetic interference (the so-called “electrosmog” pollution of electromagnetic radiation resulting from wireless technology and mains electricity). The protection offered by the silver thread from these waves allow the active muscles to operate with less “distractions”, further refining the ergogenic function of Q36.5’s high density woven fabrics.
