In the UK the Trans Euro Trail covers over 2000 miles from Newcastle in the north east to Dover down on the south coast. As the snow melted early in 2019, Steve Stout and John Paul Dixon jumped on their lightweight adv bikes and headed off on a two week adventure. It was a great way to put the new ADV Spec clothing through its paces. Here’s how they got on…

ADV SPEC TRAIL WATERPROOF SHELL
Designed for those of us who want to ride far and light this unique jacket was designed to provide a lightweight fully waterproof and vented shell for use on the bike, for those evenings huddled around a damp campfire or for those off-bike exploration days.
The main body fabric was designed by Adventure Spec specifically for this garment range and is a lightweight 3-layer ripstop technical fabric. Working alongside this to keep you safe in the event of drops and slides (also unique to AS) is a 3-layer DuPont™ Kevlar® reinforced material on the elbows, shoulder and hips. These fabrics ensure the jacket is light, tough and abrasion resistant.
To keep the weight down we kept the features list very simple.
A packaway hood specifically designed to work under helmets helps stop water from pouring down your neck on those long wet days in the saddle, as well as keeping you warm and dry around the campfire or whilst out shopping for your next meal.
A set of closable underarm vents to keep the airflow cooling your core whilst the rest of the shell keeps you dry.
A single chest pocket on the RIGHT breast of the jacket, meaning you can access it with your left hand so that your right hand stays firmly on the throttle/brake (exactly where you always want it to be!).
3 Layer lightweight ripstop waterproof breathable fabric
Du Pont Kevlar® reinforced fabric in key abrasion zones
Roll away hood
Underarm ventilation zips
One ‘Throttle Friendly’ chest pocket
Reflective panels to aid visibility in poor light
