The most versatile piece in our entire Essential Collection. A friend you should have in your pocket all year round. Using a proprietary fabric UF Hybrid Shell, offer a vest made of high-density fabric with good wind resistance as well as thermal capabilities. The ideal protection needed in summer for long descents, on chilly summer early-morning rides or in mid-season or deep winter as an extra thermal layer.
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.
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.
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.
