The Mavic Aksium Thermo windproof cycling jacket keeps you warm making a great outer layer in cold conditions. This is the warmest softshell jacket that Mavic manufacture. New Warm Shell Race fabric is soft to the touch, keeps the wind out yet lets you breathe so you don’t overheat.
Mavic’s Aksium is designed with an ergonomic fit that offers extra room for improve movement whilst on the bike. A silicone waist ensures the Aksium doesn’t ride up exposing your lower back. Up top a fleece lined collar helps stop draughts without causing uncomfortable friction and rashes.
Reflective highlights improve road visibility, great for commuters, while an easy reach back and chest pocket allow you to stash away ride essentials.
I use this jacket over a short sleeved all round base layer and it keeps me warm at temperatures as low as 0 degrees C. Not as breathable as lighter weight jackets but this is offset when you only need 2 layers. Very good wind proofing. In my view it is best used in conditions up to 8 degrees C. I did order a size up as recommended, however, this particular jacket is quite a roomy fit and I could have fitted the size below as well.

What are cycling jackets?
Cycling jackets are designed to be the right shape for your position on the bike and are made of technical materials that will keep you comfortable as you ride.
Who needs a cycling jacket?
Cycling jackets have massive benefits over normal coats – they are warm but breathable, with lots of technical features like venting and zipped pockets.
What are the choices?
Cycling jackets are usually waterproof, windproof, or both. They range from close cut race jackets to practical, relaxed commuter coats.
What should I buy with it?
Some jackets have attachments for lights for extra visibility, so you might want to invest in some extras like this.
If you don’t want to look too much like a cyclist, there are loads of good looking casual style jackets that also look good off the bike. Most are still cut low at the back, for extra coverage and weather protection you need while cycling.
