For you, a dip in temperature and snow in the air certainly don't signify the end of the cycling season. Whether your strategy for riding year-round includes wrapping your featherweight road rims in 28mm winter boots, or swapping your road bike out entirely for your mud-ready 'cross steed come September, the Gore Bike Wear Men's Oxygen GWS Jacket should be what you're wearing over your jersey. Slim fitting and delivering the reliability of Gore's proven Windstopper fabrics, the Oxygen will keep you pushing the pace through the colder months. To start, Gore equips the jacket to withstand a potent late fall cocktail of wind, rain, sleet, and snow showers by constructing the shell with its venerable Windstopper fabric. Water-resistant and completely windproof, the softshell fabric will move with you from your hoods to your drops and back again without feeling restrictive. Inside, a plush fleece lining acts as lightweight insulation, sitting cleanly over a baselayer or thermal jersey and establishing a lofted layer of warmth around your body, while continuing to wick moisture away from your skin as you heat up. For the days that warm up more than expected, Gore adds two zippered vents for airflow and builds the jacket with a full-length zipper to allow for more temperature adjustment as needed. An elastic hem and longer back hem of the jacket ensure it will stay in place while you're on the bike, while the three standard pockets and single zippered pocket provide the same amount of space as your favorite jersey for stowing bonk-preventing ride fuel and other must-haves.
