The Louis Garneau Speedzone X-Lite Gilet is one of the lightest gilets on the market. At only 60g for a medium size, this gilet offers a light protection and great practicality. The patent-pending hole in the back allows access to jersey pockets and keeps race numbers visible, and the gilet can be compressed and stored in a pocket directly in its collar. The front of the gilet is made with XLite-19 fabric, an ultra light, breathable and wind breaking nylon weave that has good abrasion resistance properties thanks to a ripstop construction. A DWR waxed finish repels water to keep you protected from the elements. At the back and side, the XLite Mesh provides optimal ventilation and comfort thanks to a stretchable and tear-resistant microfiber construction.
