Rab, owned by Equip Outdoor Technologies, Ltd., reported it would launch its first adventure bike collection this spring, called Cinder.
Tim Fish, equip product director, said, “Off-road cycling adventures require immense versatility, dealing with terrain, pace and fickle weather. We have over 40 years of knowledge and experience crafting clothing and equipment to manage these conditions. This season, we’re introducing a new cycling collection, combining that experience with a finely tuned fit to enable adventure and exploration.”
Cinder includes 31 styles for men and women and features advanced technologies—from waterproofs that keep the wearer fully protected but allow your skin to breathe to layers that work in harmony to regulate a person’s microclimate at a molecular level, the new designs with body-mapped materials balance protection and freedom of movement.
The Cinder Phantom Jacket for men and women is a lightweight, waterproof jacket for cyclists. Weighing less than 100g, it’s packable and breathable with a silicone grip drop hem, ride-refined sleeves and a frame attachable stuff sack. The light Pertex Shield 2.5 layer fabric offers stretch, weather protection and breathability, built with a fusion of face fabrics and a breathable, microporous waterproof coating.
The Cinder Kinetic Jacket is a stretch waterproof biking jacket. It is the next evolution in Rab’s Kinetic range with Proflex 3-layer fabric for breathable, lightweight protection. A Rab innovation, Proflex sandwiches a PU hydrophilic membrane between two high-gauge knit fabrics. The construction allows Rab to make ‘softshell’ jackets with the waterproof protection of a traditional hardshell.
Cinder Bibs, Cargo and Liner Shorts use an Elastic Interface gravel-specific chamois, suited for a wide demographic of users, offering consistent comfort over distance, days and all-terrain. Lightweight, breathable, and secure, its cell structure offers elastic recovery due to Elastic Interface.
