Rab Launches Cinder Range For Adventure Biking
Rab, owned by Equip Outdoor Technologies, Ltd., reported it would launch its first adventure bike collection this spring, called Cinder.
Tim Fish, equip product director, said, “Off-road cycling adventures require immense versatility, dealing with terrain, pace and fickle weather. We have over 40 years of knowledge and experience crafting clothing and equipment to manage these conditions. This season, we’re introducing a new cycling collection, combining that experience with a finely tuned fit to enable adventure and exploration.”
Cinder includes 31 styles for men and women and features advanced technologies—from waterproofs to layers that regulate a wearer’s microclimate at a molecular level, and designs with body-mapped materials to balance protection and freedom of movement.
- The Cinder Phantom Jacket for men and women is lightweight and waterproof for cycling. Weighing less than 100g, it’s packable and breathable with a silicone grip drop hem, ride-refined sleeves and a frame attachable stuff sack. The light Pertex Shield 2.5-layer fabric offers stretch, weather protection and breathability, built with a fusion of face fabrics and a breathable, microporous waterproof coating.
- The Cinder Kinetic Jacket is a stretch waterproof biking jacket. It is the next evolution in Rab’s Kinetic range with Proflex 3-layer fabric for breathable, lightweight protection. A Rab innovation, Proflex sandwiches a PU hydrophilic membrane between two high-gauge knit fabrics. The construction allows Rab to make softshell jackets with the waterproof protection of a traditional hardshell.
- Cinder Bibs, Cargo and Liner Shorts use an Elastic Interface gravel-specific chamois, suited for a wide range of users, offers comfort over distance and in all-terrain. Lightweight and breathable, the cell structure offers elastic recovery due to Elastic Interface.
