At road.cc every product is thoroughly tested for as long as it takes to get a proper insight into how well it works. Our reviewers are experienced cyclists that we trust to be objective. While we strive to ensure that opinions expressed are backed up by facts, reviews are by their nature an informed opinion, not a definitive verdict. We don't intentionally try to break anything (except locks) but we do try to look for weak points in any design. The overall score is not just an average of the other scores: it reflects both a product's function and value – with value determined by how a product compares with items of similar spec, quality, and price.
Good scores are more common than bad, because fortunately good products are more common than bad.
Innovative features and sleek design help Cannondale's Morphis Shell jacket stand out from the rest. Its versatility ensures a great investment.
This jacket has rather cool magnetic poppers which enable super ‘quick release’ from jacket to gilet, and back again. The sleeves detach as a whole; making it so quick and easy, you won’t even have to stop moving. You can act out any ‘Full Monty’ aspirations you may harbour, at the same time as keeping thermo-regulated! What more could you ask for?
The Morphis Shell is windproof and waterproof, breathable and packs down small. The jacket-gilet combo means it’s useful for any season. Made from 69% Nylon and 31% Polyurethane, it’s suitable for training and commuting, but you may get a bit sticky during intense sessions, due only to the fact that waterproof fabric in general is less breathable than other materials.
The overall look is bang-on; stylish, well-designed - a bit different: what you’d expect from a Cannondale product. White reflective material is an original and safe choice, and looks really smart.
In addition, it has lots of zipped pockets for secure storage (rear, chest and hand), and a reflective trim on the front zipper and the back, for greater visibility. It’s also adjustable at the hem.
The only downside is the single-layered waxy-feel sleeves: you’ll need a long-sleeved base layer underneath for maximum comfort.
