Flying Changes Technical Fabric

  Our high quality Italian advanced technical fabric has been developed exclusively for us. It has been tried and tested for us by elite riders at test events, under  extreme conditions and further undergone controlled scientific testing in heat control chambers.

 Lightweight, breathable and so comfortable to wear you hardly know you are wearing a coat at all. The high cotton content, as a natural fibre, also ensures it does not create unpleasant odours in the way many synthetic fabrics do. 

This is by far our most popular fabric - suitable for all climates. The actual structure, is a closely guarded secret but this, in combination with our high quality tailoring, ensures it hangs like a traditional cloth whilst worn.
