Vest or Jacket, You Decide.
The falling leaves and shorter days mark autumn, and for many riders, that’s enough to call it a season. We actually prefer to ride during this time of year as the temps are mild and the countryside views are extraordinary. Of course, having the right gear makes the ride and Mavic's Ksyrium Elite Convertible Jacket is a unique piece of kit that is perfect for starting chilly rides. This midweight softshell offers wind protection and breathability that converts into a vest with great fit and versatile protection for spring and fall rides. When things warm up, the sleeves are removable so you can keep your core happy without overheating.
Dressing right for the shoulder seasons is challenging because climbing, descending, and tempo tax you in different ways that can have you sweating buckets one minute and freezing the next. In a stroke of genius, Mavic designed the Mavic's Ksyrium Elite Convertible Jacket with zippered inset sleeve construction allowing sleeves to be removed for conversion into a vest. Dump the sleeves at the base of a climb, and enjoy the comfort of not running hot on the way up. At the summit, put them back on and block the chill as you plummet into the valley below. This is the perfect combination of comfort and versatility.
The Ksyrium is made with its Ride Wick Warm fabric that has a very soft feel and provides wind protection and breathability thanks to a fine, three-layer membrane with high-stretch. A locking asymmetrical zipper is easier to raise and lower while in the saddle, prevents chin irritation, and lets you increase ventilation as needed. A soft zipper garage, ergonomic collar with fleece lining protects your neck.
Mavic engineered the Ksyrium Elite Convertible Jacket with plenty of additional features to keep you comfortable and organized on your ride. Ergonomic and roomier cut lines enhance the range of motion and allow for easy layering. Reflective highlights help keep you visible on early morning and late afternoon rides. There are three rear pockets designed for easy access for ride essentials, along with a zippered front chest pocket for valuables. The wide elastic around the waist comfortably keeps the jersey from riding up or sagging down preventing any unwanted drafts.
