Description

Details

Think of this race cape, like you do your tyre pump, repair kit and Hoo Ha Ride Glide - how could you possibly ride without them right?  PLAN B is the handy must-have for unpredicted showers and brisk descents, shielding you from all things wet and windy.  A lovely way to beat the British downpour.

Morvélo's PLAN B Race Cape is made from a 2 ply waterproof fabric, which makes cycling in the rain a little more bearable.  Plus, the 2 ply membrane acts like a windproof barrier which stops harsh winds from blowing through - no more goose-bump chill and chattering teeth!  Whoop.

Its unique super soft feel is enough to make sure you don't leave the house without it!  PLAN B's aerodynamic fit keeps rustling winds to a minimum without the annoyance of any baggy bits whilst rear vents allow the jacket to breath, so you don't get too warm and can stay dry.

Incredibly light enough to pack down and stash in its own pocket, take this Race Cape with you on every ride, year in year out, for peace of mind, warmth and style.

Ideal for:

  • Wind and rain protection
  • All year round cycling

Morvélo's PLAN B Race Cape has been treated with a Durable Water Repellant finish (DWR), which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.  Morvélo strongly advise that this coating needs to be replenished periodically, using treatments such as:  Grangers Spray-On, McNett Revivex, Nikwax TX-Direct or Tectron DWR Treatment.

Who's Behind It?

Oli Pepper and Dave Marcar are bike nuts to the core. They've spent most of their lives riding and racing all kinds of bikes, plus nearly as long in the worlds of graphic design and branding. In 2009, they decided to combine their passions and expertise and created Morvélo - to encompass cycling 'in all its forms'.

Since then, from their Brighton base, the firm has grown through private financing from their friends and customers - often one and the same! Today they are amongst the rising stars of the British cycling sector. They remain independently owned an proudly British, and so able to put their own distinctive mark on their ever expanding range of stunning cycling gear. They explore themes that combine cycling with wider influences from art, fashion, film and music. And they do it with real individuality and class. Their women's range is growing fast, and they have 'real' women as part of their team both to design and test all their products. Just some of the reasons why we like them so much!

On top of their great clothing, they are always looking to expand their influence within the cycling world more broadly - hence their collaborations with brands as iconic as the Tour de France, the Bicycle Academy and Look Mum No Hands, and cycling events. They are going places, and we're going with them...
