The protective cyclist jacket is an essential item of clothing for cycling in good conditions. At Björka, we offer two types of clothing to protect you from bad weather, particularly wind and rain: the windproof vest and the waterproof jacket. Technical, our protective jackets are light, waterproof and breathable. Your comfort when you go out by bike is priceless to us. With or without sleeves, our jackets are compact so that they can be forgotten in the back pocket of your cycling jersey for example. Windproof vest and / or waterproof jacket, Björka lets you choose.
Imagine yourself riding the Tourmalet by bike in the middle of summer. It's hot and stormy… Despite everything, you had a lot of fun climbing the pass in 1h43 [for info, Thibaut Pinot has the record for the climb - 18.95 km - in 54'57]. You enjoy the magnificent view you have over the Pyrenees but the weather is more and more threatening ...
It starts to rain.
The waterproof jacket: the essential cycling textile for riding in the rain Its usefulness is obvious: to stay dry when it rains and you are on your bike. It is not always simple and sometimes contradictory. Indeed, the jacket should promote the evacuation of perspiration generated by the cyclist and prevent the rain from penetrating your cycling clothing. That's why our jackets are breathable and waterproof.
The wind picks up.
The windproof vest: useful cycling clothing Often sleeveless, the cycling wind vest is equipped with an integral zipper. Practical to put on - even when riding a bike - it protects against the wind and the mid-season freshness. The gilet is also often waterproof, although it does not offer the same waterproof protection as a jacket.
You are comfortably equipped. Your bike ride ends as it started. Well.
