Guard Nimbus by Santini, the cyclist's wardrobe!

Having a jacket so that we can protect ourselves from the rain and the wind with the maximum guarantees, is already possible and also… necessary! if you are a cyclist

From Triathlon News we analyze GUARD NIMBUS by Santini: the essential wardrobe since it is one of the 3 layers required for our departures in autumn and winter, valid for temperatures between 5º and 15º degrees

Ideal for the rain

The Guard Nimbus jacket is designed for average temperatures and to protect us from rain and / or wind.

With a very light and soft fabric, adapts to the body like a second skin, keeping our own temperature inside while perspiring.

As we can see in the photo, it comes in two models, as a jacket and as a vest.

Our impressions

It delivers what it promises and exceeds!

From Triathlon News we have tested both models, both vest and jacket with very good impressions.

Small in size and very light Santini knows how to take care of every detail, and it shows when cyclists manufacture solutions for cyclists, the result is always maximum quality and comfort.

Guard Ninbus is of course an essential for anyone who practices cycling regularly since according to our experience it perfectly protects from the wind and keeps our body temperature stable.

The only "but" we could find is that, if you sweat a lot on a long climb, does not evaporate sweat instantly, if not little by little it is disappearing, but we also have to say that at no time have we had a feeling of discomfort because of it, since it perspires quickly and much better than other models that we have tested previously.

We also had the chance to try it one day of light rain of "mist" that slid perfectly through the jacket without getting the inside wet.


Conclusion? Well, for us it has already become an essential "wardrobe" for our road or MTB outings.
