Anyone ridden Mallorca? Over in Cala D'or next week and thinking of hiring and cycling San Salvador plus a few of the routes through towns nearby.

How breathable is it? I have the Rapha pro team race cape from a few seasons ago and it's great at keeping the rain out but not very breathable so you boil in the bag

It’s as clear as night and day. Shakedry is by far the most breathable waterproof jacket solution for riding a bike, although with it you do sacrifice some durability. I wouldn’t purchase if you intend to ride in it off road, but it’s perfect for on road use.

Bear in mind Shakedry has no stretch, unlike the race cape, so fit might be slightly different.

Been religiously following the progress of Red Bull Rampage this year following the Hardline event - absolutely mental what these blokes do. Prep of the lines beforehand and the work that they put in is crazy.

That’s what I was using last year but lost one of them. That the absolute best?

Galibier's whole range is excellent. The foul weather gilet is a great bit of kit.
