AS befits a brand with road race heritage, the Mavic Cyclone jacket is very athletic in its cut.

The Cyclone's fit is ultra close and as such it not only has no flapping, excess fabric, but keeps you warm thanks to a well sealed internal environment with little excess air volume to heat up.

The chest, shoulders and arms have the windproof Tech Dry ST fabric so the parts of you that are exposed to the wind are well protected. The rear panel is a more breathable fabric to aid thermoregulation.

As well as a good fit, the jacket's finish is good and the sculpted zip shape keeps the solid metal zipper away from your neck and chin when in a lower riding position.
