£170 Gore’s Wind­stop­per fab­ric has been the gold stan­dard of cy­cling-spe­cific ther­mal ma­te­ri­als for years, en­sur­ing the foun­da­tions of this good-look­ing San­tini jacket are strong and sta­ble. Why? It’s down to Gore’s triple-layer con­struc­tion, with a mem­brane bonded be­tween a com­fort­able polyester fleece on the in­side and an­other layer of polyester on the out­side. This lay­er­ing comes at a light weight and, says the blurb, is in its el­e­ment be­tween 5°-18°C. Our test­ing echoes this, and this would per­form eas­ily into the depths of win­ter with a good base and mid-layer be­neath. The Beta stays dry for rides of around 75mins, even dur­ing in­clement rides. The elas­tane of­fers good lev­els of free­dom, so mov­ing with you as you al­ter­nate be­tween drops, hoods and tops, while three deep rear pock­ets, a rear zipped one and slick aes­thetic com­plete an im­pres­sive pack­age. zy­
