2018 flint - Shell

In the colder, wetter months the bike shell has be perfect to out biking in the elements only the UK can throw at you and still be dry, warm yet not sweaty.
Rain runs straight off the jacket, wind doesn’t affect you when biking while wearing the shell which is a big positive for me I can take most elements but biking in windy conditions isn’t nice. At the same time as being waterproof the shell is also breathable so once you’ve got into the ride and start to get warm you don’t get over the top warm and sweaty as it is breathable as well.

As with all the other tops Aussie Grit Apparel do there is a silicon band around the bottom at the back to prevent it from riding up when moving around and the waterproof auto-locking zips which features on all of the range and they are very effective.

Another great feature is you like listening to music while on a ride is that the pocket on the front of the jacket has a laser cut eyelet inside for your earphone or headphone cable to go.

As keeping safe while biking is a big deal Aussie Grit Apparel have put reflective highlights on the front and back.
