Something you don't need to be told: a chilly wind can suck the heat out of your bones and turn riding into a miserable slog. Something you may not know: Mavic's Aksium Men's Jacket is specifically designed to protect you from the wind, so you can ride through icy gusts without turning into an ice cube. The secret is in the Wind SL fabric, which is simultaneously superlight and highly wind resistant, so you can stuff it into a jersey pocket and always have it handy for fast descents or gusty mountain passes. Wind SL also provides light rain protection, so misty days and drizzle won't ruin your ride, and has strategic Air Mesh panels to increase cooling and ventilation. Elastic binding at the cuffs and dropped back hem provide full coverage and a fit that won't flap, while reflective details help you stay safe and a zippered back pocket keeps your essentials within easy reach.
