Sportful Fiandre Light Norain £115
Constructed using panels of both Windshield 3L and Norain Light in key areas, the Fiandre Norain offers the rider the most benefit from each fabric’s properties.
Windshield 3L is a three-layer stretchy membrane that acts a wind barrier as well as offering an element of insulation and durable water repellency. It’s located on the top’s front, shoulders and upper arms.
The Sportful-exclusive Norain is a tried and trusted nanotech water-repellent treatment finish. As well as keeping you reasonably dry, the fabric is also warm, breathable and very stretchy, making it close fitting. When riding, there was no wind flap whatsoever.
The Fiandre Norain is a good addition to any cyclist’s between-seasons wardrobe, especially for those looking for performance clothing, as it ticks all the high-tech boxes: tight-fitting, breathable and with added element protection.
There is a significant role to play in ensuring the jersey’s longevity, however: Sportful recommends specialist detergents Grangers, Nikwax Tx-direct or Tectron DWR, for the upkeep of the Norain treatment.
