Similar to Therminal materials, the Element surface also uses water repellence waterproofing technology.
Deflect is mainly windproof technical material for cycling wears. A large number of applications against the cold wind clothing, because the material density is very large, can be very effective against strong winds, very useful for seasonal, or climbing cycling ride to use. Deflect the design is very clever, jacket sealing is very good, but also think of high breathability. Any clothing with this sign indicates that he can easily fold to a small size in addition to the wind and basic waterproofing effect, and can be placed in the pocket behind the riding suit to prepare for contingencies.

Gore-tex windstopper is different from any of the above-mentioned wind resistant materials. It is divided into three, Soft-shell, pack lite and Active shell, most high-end brands are used Active shell and Pack lite, the former is the latest design, with better ventilation and insulation. The latter can be folded into a very small size design.
The waterproof function for cycling wears, one is Gore-tex waterproof, another is Water repellence. They have the following basic differences, the former is 99% of the waterproof material, can withstand long rain baptism, which is a short repairable waterproof function, High-tech fiber of the different preparation of the form of natural waterproof layer, but it is not a long waterproof, need to use a specific washing material for maintenance.
