SO, WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Cycling is a way of life for many people. It's like coffee culture, a smartphone or the Internet - growing in popularity every day and finding its way seamlessly into our lives. At Huez* we dream of a future, where bicycles are the most used transport in the city, and of a world where both sport and technology enable society to be happier and healthier then ever before.
In creating our clothing we look to technology and cutting edge design to improve the experience and make every ride even more enjoyable.
The product our customers are now crying out for is a great wind jacket that is both functional and stylish - so we decided to get super tech with it and design the whole jacket around a really amazing zip!
INTRODUCING THE STARMAN WIND JACKET
The Huez* Starman Wind jacket is cut from one of the lightest rip stop fabrics in the world at just 25gms.
Its unique quickburst functionality allows the garment to burst open when pulled at its center.
This removes the difficulty of finding a zip with cold hands or cumbersome gloves, but also ensures that your hands can be where they should be for longer - at the controls of the bike.
Our Huez* Star logo proudly sits on the sleeve and retro-reflects any light that hits it, so you'll be in safe hands. The rear of the garment has a large vent that serves the dual purpose of allowing any warm air out, but also easy access to jersey pockets.
Made in Portugal the quality of make on this jacket is second to none, with every functional detail considered.
And it packs down easily into its own little squashable bag which doubles as an inside pocket when worn.
OKAY OKAY, I'M SOLD - BUT WHAT COLOURS WILL YOU HAVE?
The Starman Wind Jacket will be available for you to order in two fantastic colours - Moss or Damson:
WHAT SIZE AM I?
Here's some information on what size jacket will best fit you - please note that the UK inches illustrate your body's chest circumference size and not the actual chest circumference of the jacket itself:
THE REWARDS SOUND GREAT, BUT WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE?
We're glad you asked - here are some images to whet your pledging appetite:
We have already put together a stylish collection of the essentials for cyclists, and have built an online platform on which to sell them. With your help the Starman Wind Jacket can be added to this platform and be made available to buy for cyclists all over the world.
We've made our website clean, clear and very shoppable and have even managed to include some really fun video to show how our clothes look on a bicycle.
OUR FINAL THOUGHT
We're asking for your help to create this unique product and continue to innovate clothing that helps us meet the goal of making the bicycle the most popular mode of transport in our society.
Thank you from all at Team Huez*.
