Road Bike Gilets
A gilet is one of the most versatile pieces of cycling clothing and is most commonly worn by road cyclists. They're quick and easy to put on making them ideal for descents or if the wind picks up. A road gilet can also be folded up and stored away in your jersey pocket when the sun comes out and the temperature picks up.
The best gilets are lightweight, windproof and in some cases even water-resistant. You'll often find that the back is made from a mesh fabric to allow heat to dissipate which is especially useful when climbing. The best time of year to pack a jersey in your pocket is during Spring or Autumn. It could be cold in the morning when you set off and warm in the afternoon, or the weather could turn and you're left wishing you had an extra layer of protection. With the very best cycling gilets from the likes of Castelli, Sportful, Santini and PBK at ProBikeKit you won't be short of choice.
