WE ARE PROUD TO INTRODUCE THE FORTITUDE – THIS IS OUR HIGHEST SPECIFICATION LAMINATED SPORTS TOURING TEXTILE GARMENT WHICH HAS BEEN DESIGNED WITH COMFORT AT ITS CORE.
Made from a super tough durable fabric, the technically advanced construction of this jacket offers 100% waterproofing, superior levels of breathability, CE certified protection and abrasion resistance, making it adaptable to all riding conditions.
Designed to offer the ultimate protection against the weather, the Fortitude jacket is made from a super tough 750 denier, 225gsm laminated brushed nylon which offers a soft, abrasion and tear resistant finish. The W2 laminated outer shell features a reproofable DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating to prevent the jacket absorbing water. The DWR is the first barrier against the weather and means that any water will bounce off the jacket, keeping the fabric dry.
The jacket’s W2 laminated construction boasts a waterproof rating of over 10,000mm/cm2 (Hydrostatic Head) for superior levels of water repellence, breathability and high performance. This means the fabric could hold a 1cm2 column of water that is 10 metres tall before water leaks through!
Additionally, the jacket has a breathability rating 10,000g/m2/24h. This means 10,000 grams of moisture vapor can pass through a square metre of the fabric over a 24-hour period – keeping the rider dry.
Rider comfort is at the heart of this jacket and the high specification continues inside the jacket with the addition of the HDWool® lining. Made in Yorkshire, HDWool® is a highly breathable and natural form of temperature regulation which keeps the rider cooler in the heat and warm in the cold. It’s simple to care for and is odour resistant.
Supporting this are two direct-to-body vents with water resistant MAX zips and magnetised, rubberised storm flap keep the rider well ventilated when open.
In addition, pop stud, hook & loop fastener and MAX zip opening at the front of the jacket come with an Amara zip cover for added comfort and prevents rubbing against the body.
PASSIVE AND ACTIVE SAFETY
The reinforced shoulders are made with 270 gsm, 80% nylon with a built-in reflective thread offering superb levels of visibility when riding. Additionally, the hard-wearing fabric further supports the shoulder and has a very low co-efficiency friction due to the weight of the fabric again adding to the safety. Other features include a large dot matrix reflective logo on the rear of the jacket and reflective panels on the arms for high rider visibility.
