The result of countless design iterations and a driving goal to make a hardshell jacket at home on the bike without sacrificing aesthetic, the RECON Hardshell Jacket is the premier piece in the new Velocio RECON collection. Featuring Polartec® Neoshell® 3-layer fabric throughout for the most breathable, weather resistant feel possible, the RECON Hardshell incorporates urban moto-inspired styling with 3D patterning for the perfect fit. At home in the harshest conditions on the road or taking a long reprieve at a coffee shop around town, this is an unrivaled piece designed for a rider looking for ride performance without compromising comfort or style.
The RECON Collection by Velocio is designed to be versatile, comfortable and durable across a variety of rides and conditions yet aesthetically clean enough to keep wearing when the pedaling stops. Cycling is about great stories. The difference in finding every turn in the adventure is how long one spends exploring.RECON marries the highest quality technical materials with modern design queues and a tailored cycling cut.
Velocio utilizes Polartec® NeoShell® fabric for its incredible performance: class-leading breathability and excellent protection.
Velocio’s RECON Hardshell Jacket was named winner of a 2015 APEX award by Polartec®, an award given annually to Polartec® fabric users displaying ingenuity in design and construction. Featuring Polartec® NeoShell®, the breathable cycling jacket for women takes styling cues from motorcycle jackets and bears a rideable design that can be functional off the bike as well.The jacket, part of the new Velocio RECON line, is available this fall and balances urban style and cycling performance. Highly breathable, 100% waterproof, Polartec® NeoShell® fabric is used throughout the jacket.
Designer Brad Sheehan says he looked to the design elements of a vintage motorcycle because of its classic style but it’s also function in a ‘cycling position’. “It allowed us to incorporate features into the cut of this jacket that make it work on the bike, while still giving it a versatile look that works off-bike.”
