7Mesh has always been pushing the envelope in fabric design. Now after years of development the brand has launched WTV (wind, thermal, ventilation) to provide all-out comfort through chilly conditions.
With WTV, 7Mesh has focused on air permeability, creating a fabric that can regulate the movement of air, water, and water vapour for warmth while allowing for ventilation to avoid overheating.
WTV is made out of a two-part construction with a high-stretch outer and a loft-insulated interior with brushed yarns with the aim of trapping warm air. 7Mesh says that, in use, the trapped warm air sits at a higher pressure than cooler air outside of the fabric and that differential helps balance the system by pushing some of the warm air and moisture out.
The four garments on offer that makes use of the new WTV fabric, have been developed and tested over thousands of miles throughout Squamish BC's winter conditions. As for those models, the Seton Jersey and Seton Vest feature a trim fit for fast-moving cyclists. Then there's the Chilco Anorak and Chilco Vest that are cut with a looser fit, ideal for off-road riders who appreciate versatility.
Prices for 7Mesh's new WTV start at £130 for the vest models and go up to £170 for the jersey and anorak.
