Mountain bike tours in any weather: no problem for an MTB jacket

Mountainbike Jackets

High-quality MTB jackets by Vaude, Endura or GORE Bike Wear provide optimal protection against cold and headwind on rough terrain cycling tours. Real lightweights, these cycling jackets are designed to adapt to your every move during high-performance cycling. Featuring an extended back area, the jacket ensures sufficient protection and warmth even when riding in a sporty position. Similar to windproof jackets and windbreakers, cycling jackets are to provide cyclists with optimal protection against cold headwind. For this purpose, a variety of windproof and waterproof materials is used.

Ideal materials used in MTB jackets are functional textiles that provide perfect protection against harsh weather conditions while being breathable and ensuring optimal ventilation when cycling. A good choice is a hardshell jacket with Gore-Tex membrane or a softshell jacket with Gore windstopper. While a waterproof jacket ensures perfect weather protection, a softshell MTB jacket provides increased breathability.

Mountain bike jackets with high breathability and optimal weather protection

You might want to opt for practical MTB vests on warmer days. However, while ensuring great ventilation, a sleeveless vest won't provide you with the same weather protection as a long sleeve jacket. Coming with built-in back protectors, some short sleeve vests go perfectly with MTB jerseys or MTB jackets.

Mountain bikers prefer different jackets for cycling, depending on the recommended use and their individual riding style. Downhill jackets, for instance, need to be robust and have a wide fit providing sufficient space for protectors underneath the MTB jacket. A rather small pack size and little weight are crucial on MTB tours. Depending on the biker's ambition, an MTB jacket needs to provide higher or lower breathability. If you are planning on climbing to high altitudes, you should definitely make sure you have sufficient ventilation. A cycling jacket's most important features, however, are a perfect fit and outstanding mobility. When choosing your perfect jacket, make sure it has the right length and leaves your shoulders with sufficient mobility while cycling.
