Capo Padrone SL Wind Jacket

A versatile, full-featured and highly technical wind jacket designed with low-light safety in mind.

When visibility is important – at dawn or dusk, on dark days, in a tunnel – our Padrone SL Wind Jacket makes sure you get seen. Meanwhile, unique fabrics and 19-panel anatomic construction assure the superior performance and fit you demand. Windproof and water-resistant Element 4 360° luminescent membrane ensures high impact visibility from every angle. Our P-10 membrane is positioned on the rear lateral and lower sleeve panels and delivers 360º luminescence with perforations for added ventilation.

Super Roubaix® SL is carefully positioned at the lower sleeve, cuff and side panel for lightweight thermal insulation. Capo Jacquard waist elastic assures a sleek, no-gap finish. Comfortable in the 40-60°F range with a thermal base layer.

Two-way 6mm zipper with lockable slider and garage. Three rear pockets to keep your energy bars and essential gear handy.

SHOT will also be supporting Chris Froome next season. Furthermore, in 2017, with SHOT, Sidi will be the official supplier of new Team Bahrain-Merida, as well as Team Katusha Alpecin and Team Astana.

RPM No-Rain Jacket

The new No-Rain Jacket is perfect for wet weather. The breathable, wind-and water-resistant material shields the body from rain. This protective jacket is also aerodynamic, thanks in part to a silicone band sewn around the waist, which guarantees better adherence. A long, covered, separable zipper and three convenient rear pockets with reflective edges are details that make this new RPM product unique.
