This Beta will be Your Alpha Jacket.
If you are looking for one jacket to get you through the bulk of your winter riding, Santini's Beta Winter jacket is worth a look. Constructed from Windstopper Fuga fabric, it's windproof, water-resistant and provides excellent insulating protection from the cold so you can say no to the trainer and yes to getting your Flahute card stamped. The combination of fabrics provides optimal protection from the elements without the need for bulky layers and as such, the garment features an anatomic cut that is more jersey than jacket and it feels perfect when reaching for the bars.
The piece of kit is engineered for comfort and is designed to keep you dry and comfortable in temps ranging from 18 to 41-degrees Fahrenheit. Shielding you from the elements is a tall order on its own, but the material is also very breathable so it pulls moisture away from your skin preventing you from overheating on long climbs. Jacquard elastic on the bottom holds the jacket firmly in place trapping heat and preventing any unwanted drafts from entering the jacket.
If the skies open up, you'll be glad that your phone and valuables are stashed in the rainproof zippered pocket. Flanking that pocket are three large pockets to store calories for big days, extra warmers, and any other essentials to help you slog through the worse Mother Nature has to offer. Reflective piping on the back and on the sleeves help motorist take notice in the fleeting light.
High quality fabrics are used throughout so the jacket remains durable after many outings and washes. Made in Italy, this jacket is available in black, yellow flou, and red in 6 sizes ranging from SM-3XL.
