Fast protection for bad weather crusades

VAUDE bike rain cape for city dwellers

The VAUDE Cyclist Cape is always on call when it's cold outside or the weather shifts from one moment to the next. It’s windproof and warm, and reliably blocks out rain - with two practical kangaroo pockets, it has everything a rain poncho really needs.

Cyclists know the situation too well: you’ve been casually mall shopping or just sitting around with friends and decide to ride home. Boom! While you weren’t looking, Mother Nature decided to open her floodgates and it’s raining or snowing. VAUDE has designed its Cyclist Cape for just such occasions. It is 100% windproof, keeps wetness where it belongs, and is quickly pulled over when inhospitable conditions are to be faced.

Thanks to taped seams at high stressed areas, the cape can withstand even longer rain showers; two large kangaroo pockets offer ample space for everything that has to be carried home. VAUDE has also equipped the Cyclist Cape with inserts made of Primaloft® Black Insulation Eco in the chest and shoulder areas, to ensure effective thermal retention at the upper body.

Comfortable protection for urban biking

If you are already on your bike, the Cyclist Cape also provides fast weather protection. You don't need to change clothes - just throw over the cape, even if you’re already wearing a backpack and helmet. The cape has a shoulder strap system that can be adjusted to closely fit your body. A generous pleat in the back ensures sufficient mobility while riding. In addition, reflective elements provide more visibility on the road - a valuable asset especially in low-light conditions. Last but not least, capes are trendy and ponchos are in! VAUDE takes this into account with its fresh, eye-catching design, making the Cyclist Cape a shoo-in to become your favourite cycling crusader!
