An afternoon drizzle won't keep you off the bike when your kit includes the Giro New Road Women's Rain Jacket. Rain, fog, and mist will roll right off the 2. 5 layer waterproof membrane, while the fully taped seams prevent dampness from penetrating through microscopic seam joints, even if it's raining hard and you're riding fast. The real beauty of the New Road, though, is its breathability. Rated to 20,000 grams per square meter, it will transfer water vapor as quickly as it manifests, so you never feel clammy or sticky. A subtle back vent helps further with air circulation, and the stretchy fabric has a soft hand, so it won't rustle you into insanity when you're putting in soggy hours in the saddle. Finally, unlike traditional rain jackets, the New Road has a droppZed back hem that's expressly designed to keep you covered when you're stretched out on the handlebars, so you can keep gaps to a minimum and focus on riding, not on your increasingly soggy baselayers.
