SuperRoubaix® Carbon adds the inherent beneficial properties of carbon to the tried and true ultimate winter material. The carbon element controls the stretch in the fabric, enabling muscle isolation to delay the onset of fatigue. Carbon also repels atmospheric electronic interference from cell phone towers and power lines that negatively affect performance on the bike.
HD44 Light™ is a combination of a High Density Weave + WindTex + a Lighter Density Weave. HD44 on the outside provides a smooth aerodynamic surface. The middle WindTex membrane is a well known industry standard in wind blocking technology. Smooth HD22 is the innermost layer that has both an antibacterial and wicking treatment to quickly move moisture away from the body, and maintain a costant inner climate.
