The Lab is our content series that delves deep into the design, innovation, and product detail behind our superior sportswear. To mark the launch of the new Rubicon - an exciting evolution of The Carlos - Anna Graham our Head of Design explains how this signature running jacket has been redesigned and evolved to enhance performance.
The Rubicon has been reengineered to withstand even more adverse weather conditions than its predecessor. By using carefully crafted nanotechnology within the fabric, the jacket achieves incredible water resistance (water is repelled on contact), and is dirt resistant.
The Rubicon is exceptionally lightweight and has a microporous membrane that allows the jacket to be optimally breathable. This prevents athletes from overheating during wear and workouts, no matter how intense.
In reference to design, The Rubicon retains the classic silhouette. It’s cut for maximum ease of movement, which enables athletes to run and train at maximum intensity, with absolute freedom of movement. A running jacket that any athlete can truly rely on, in any conditions.
One of the lightest jackets on the market, the Rubicon weighs a mere 105 GSM, taking wet weather performance to another level. The bonded ergonomic hood provides full coverage whilst the three-layer membrane provides unrivalled waterproof protection. Two side-zipped pockets give ample storage, and the jacket packs down into its own pocket, making it the ultimate versatile garment.
