The Wires Stolen Goat Orkaan Jersey suits temperatures from 6 to 16C, meaning it comes into its own in changeable conditions. The Orkaan is designed to act as a sealed capsule to minimise the discomforts of wind and rain and help you remain at a comfortable temperature in changeable conditions.
The water and wind repellent fabric retains a good level of breathability that can easily be compromised by thicker fully waterproof apparel. The jersey allows your body to control its temperature while the wind resistant shell stops the cold air from penetrating. There’s no risk of overheating on the climbs before freezing on the descents thanks to the Orkaan’s clever design.
The soft fleece-like Roubaix lining means it is comfortable against the skin when worn in isolation. Only at the lowest end of the temperature scale would you need to consider a base layer.
The covered zip helps protect against wind and cold penetration, a key benefit on those lengthy descents or the coldest of ride temperatures.
The rear pockets are made of Pixel100 fabric. Subtle in design, its a fabric that packs a punch in adverse conditions and deteriorating light. It offers greater visibility by reflecting light from car headlights should you find yourself getting caught out by low light conditions or want to increase your visibility at night.
Great cycling kit can be ruined with a cheap zip. The YKK camlock is the best zip money can buy, allowing riders to fix a position without fear of it loosening with movement or the airflow from a descent. Another key feature is the zip garage. A simple and ingenious detail at the top of the zip that you wont notice until you wear a jersey that doesnt have it. Any jersey, particularly close fitting, with the zip fully closed can be uncomfortable; but the zip garage houses the zip minimising any discomfort to your neck.
The fourth water resistant stash pocket has a zip to save you losing valuables if you go over a big bump. It also protects vulnerable items like credit cards from potential damage.
