2XU Sub Zero 360 Cycle Vest - Men's
2XU Sub Zero 360 Cycle Vest - Men's:
Competitive Cyclist is based in Utah, with offices in Park City and Salt Lake City. As such, we totally lucked into some of the best climbing terrain in the world. Grinding up Little Cottonwood Canyon's 9.2% average grade over 8.38 miles (virtually the same profile as the famed Alpe d'Huez) while the leaves are changing in the fall is one of the greatest experiences a cyclist can have. And when we do ride it during cool months, we always take along something like the 2XU Sub Zero 360 Cycle Vest so we don't freeze on the way down.
The main fabric in this vest, 16:13 XStretch Breathe, is indicative of the lengths that 2XU is willing to go to in search of solutions to the obstacles athletes face. It's a three-layer material that brings breathability, water-resistance, and an accommodating stretch to the jacket. Spend twenty minutes on a winter ride with it, and you'll understand why it headlines the cast of materials in the Australian manufacturer's top cold-weather kit.
2XU uses panels of SMD Thermo Brushed fabric on the shoulders, sides, and back, which provide insulation, a gentle, fleecy touch to the skin, and also flexes for movement. The extra breathability of SMD Thermo Brushed comes at the expense of 13:16 XStretch Breathe's superior water-resistance, so 2XU only incorporates it in areas of the jacket where breathability is more desirable than being element-proof.
The Sub Zero 360 includes a zippered chest pocket and three rear pockets, the outmost of which are slanted for easier access. An inner collar provides more seal against the wet chill of winter, a full zip allows for quick venting on climbs or during hard efforts, and reflective trimming helps keep you visible in all directions during low-light rides.
The 2XU Sub Zero 360 Cycle Vest is available in six sizes ranging from X-Small to XX-Large in the colors Concrete Grey/neon red and Slate/neon yellow.
