** A note on fit: These jackets are perfect for women with broader shoulders and larger busts, with a slightly triangular shape that lends itself to a more top-heavy figure. **

VeloVixen's Climb and Conquer Refraction womens Winter Cycling Jacket, designed in conjunction with our friends at Stolen Goat, is a true thoroughbred to get you through the coldest days of any winter. We know of outings well below freezing where the Climb and Conquer women's cycling jacket has kept the lucky wearer smiling throughout!

It's so cosy and well insulated that on anything other than the coldest days you'll be able to wear the Climb and Conquer with just a base layer or summer jersey. It's perfect for crisp wintery conditions where the temperature remains consistently low throughout your ride. You won't even dread the odd downpour - it features water repellent fabric, but with seams and zips deliberately not sealed to keep it breathable and ensure you don't overheat.

The Refraction graphic is a stunning statement jacket with true individual character will get you noticed and seen in all the best ways.

The Tempest Protect fabric provides both a wind and waterproof shell to give you the confidence to keep you riding throughout the winter, on or off road. Its soft, fleece-like Roubaix lining adds versatility, allowing it to be paired with a base layer or summer jersey on even the coldest rides. Should conditions warm up, it'll remain comfortable against your skin if you need to wear on its own. The covered zip helps protect against wind and cold penetration.

The rear pockets are made of Pixel100 fabric. The subtle pinpricks of reflectivity are understated by day but reflect dramatically after dark, helping to keep you highly visible on the road.

The Camlock zip (with garage) is the best zip money can buy, ensuring the zip stays put and doesn't irritate. And a fourth, water resistant pocket means you can keep your valuables safe and dry and wave goodbye to ziplock bags forever!

  • Tempest Protect insulating windproof & waterproof fabric
  • Fleecy roubaix lining
  • Pixel100 reflective detailing on rear pockets
  • Triple back pockets
  • 4th waterproof stash pocket
  • Covered Camlock zip with garage
  • Headphone cable hole
  • Performance fit
  • Optimal temperature range between -5 to 8°c

 
 

Performance fit: this jacket is in keeping with the bodyline fit associated with Stolen Goat jerseys to minimise any flapping. If you are looking for a more relaxed fit to wear with more layers for low intensity rides, you will need to size up.

One size fits all.

Since we launched in 2012, just after the London Olympics, VeloVixen has become a byword for hand chosen gear that's been designed entirely for the female rider. And, we're often told, the benchmark for friendly, approachable, knowledgable customer service.

That's before you mention our broader commitment to the sport through our regular event appearances, popular blog and Facebook chat group, Strava group, open days and so much more.

We're still a proudly family-run small UK business based just outside Oxford, committed to offering what passionate, capable people like you actually want!

When it comes to putting our name on our own products, we need to be 100% convinced that we're offering something special. Once our original padded cycling knickers had proved themselves over the years we decided it was time to take things to another level - and that's when the full VeloVixen range that take such pride in was born.

We aim to dispatch all orders within 2-3 working days, often sooner. Within the UK we use Royal Mail's Tracked 48 service - you will receive a tracking code with your order.

Next Day Delivery (guaranteed by 12pm with Royal Mail) is available on some products when ordered before 1pm. This option will be shown next to the specific product when available.

If your particular size is not shown, feel free to contact us by email at contact@velovixen.com. Please note some deliveries may take longer if we need to order a product in.
