Constructed from a lightweight, breathable 3D mesh, the race vest features an endurance on-bike anatomic fit for unrivalled stability and all-day comfort. Two stretch mesh pockets provide on-the-bike storage and access for food, drinks and mid-ride essentials, while a zippered device pocket keeps your smartphone close to hand. Two large pockets on the back provide further storage and feature Racing Series high-contrast reflective print and a light attachment point for enhanced visibility in all light conditions.
The hydration pack is available in two sizes to enable the perfect fit for all body shapes. Adjustable sternum straps ensure a comfortable fit, with further side adjustment to ensure there is no unwanted movement while riding. Hydration hose organisation loops and a magnetic clip keep the hose nearby, yet out of the way.

The Racing Hydration Vest comes in two sizes to accommodate riders of all shapes and has been designed with all-day comfort in mind. For choosing your size, we recommend measuring your chest circumference whilst wearing your regular riding gear. With your arms relaxed at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest with a flexible measuring tape. For riders that fit both sizes, we recommend sizing down.

|L/XL||96cm / 38in||125cm / 49in|
DESIGNED FOR FIT
The Racing Hydration Vest is designed around an endurance on-bike anatomic fit, with the goal of being comfortable, secure and stable over many hours in the drops or on aerobars.
The neckline is cut low to avoid chafing or getting in the way of a helmet in an aero tuck, also falling below the neckline of most jerseys to avoid rubbing on any seams.
The front is shaped to be comfortable while in the drops, fitting high enough up the torso to avoid causing any chafing or impeding movement and the rear is high enough to ensure riders can still access their jersey pockets.
The sides are shaped to avoid any chafing around the arms, using an open construction and stretchy materials that provide a secure fit without restricting breathing.

FITTING THE RACING HYDRATION VEST
When fitting the Racing Hydration vest, adjust the sternum straps first until the vest fits comfortably over the chest. Once these are in position, the side straps can be tightened until the vest is stable.
The flexible mesh side and elasticated strap design ensure the vest is not restrictive even when cinched tightly.
