CYCLING IN THE RAIN // MADE EASY // ORKAAN CAPSULE

Cycling in the rain & battling the elements day in day out, on short rides or Gran Fondo’s? You need a simple answer to the question we each ask ourselves before every ride… “what will the weather do whilst I’m riding?”

waterproof cycling tops and bottoms

This question is very difficult to answer. You may travel far and wide over the course of your ride, over different altitudes and landscapes. As such, the temperature can easily swing +/- 10 degrees over the course of a ride, and the conditions can go from dry as a bone to soaking wet over the space of 1 kilometre. Cycling in the rain isn’t much fun if you get caught short.

Traditional thinking involves “layering up”. But this has some major drawbacks –

  1. As soon as one of those layers gets soaking wet, or you aren’t quick enough to get that rain cape out your back pocket then you’re already wet, cold and miserable.
  2. Secondly, it means carrying all these things around with bulging pockets all day long, carrying stuff that you may or may not even need. That’s uncomfortable, heavy and incredibly inefficient.
  3. Finally – the system is only as strong as the weakest link. Unless you seek out the best quality of each and every item in that selection of layers then you are likely to still get wet and cold, and/or you are very likely to experience the “boil-in-the-bag” effect as you get soaking wet from sweating under all those layers that don’t breathe too well. All those layers are going to get mighty expensive!
