Extra protection from wet and windy weather is always at hand with the ultra-light and packable oneten Vento II vest.
A punishing training schedule, a packed competitive calendar or a simple love of epic Sunday spins – long hours in the saddle demand clothing that can rise to the challenge and meet the needs of your body.
Need extra protection from the elements in a package convenient enough to carry on every ride?
Meet the improved oneten Vento II vest, offering great protection from wind and showers but ultra-light and easily stowable in a jersey pocket, saddlebag or cycle pack.
It’s the perfect way to keep the chill at bay while warming up, on long descents or when ride conditions are changeable.
Innovation – evolved
Engineered from the same micro-denier polyamide fabric as the first-generation Vento, we’ve added stretch polyester mesh side panels to the Vento II for improved breathability and ventilation as well as a better fit, while also improving shower resistance on the main body fabric.
Cut for comfort
We've made the Vento II vest with a cycle-specific cut: high at the front for wind protection; 3D shaped panels and seams for aero fit; a longer back for aero positioning; arm and neck holes placed slightly forward and down and an extended tail for lower back coverage.
To prevent irritation the Vento II features minimal 3D seaming and direct-print logos and care labels, while soft and flexible tape bindings on the arm openings, collar and rear hem ensure a snug, aerodynamic fit over your mid-layer jersey, without flapping or chafing.
On the practical side of things the Vento II features a full-length custom front zipper with textured gripper for ease of use while wearing gloves, and comes in translucent white to keep you visible to other road or trail users. Meanwhile custom oneten sew-in reflective tabs and flouro yellow side panels improve low-light visibility for early/late commutes or training sessions.
Who is it for?
We've designed the Vento II vest as an essential staple for riders of all levels and disciplines, on-road and off.
Stowed handily in a jersey pocket, trail backpack or commuter's pannier the Vento II is invaluable for any rider seeking an additional level of security and comfort against the bite of the wind in changeable conditions.
Worn with the oneten Intimo base layer as well as a suitable mid layer such as the oneten Primavera long-sleeve or Giro II short-sleeve jerseys, the Vento II makes sure you have insurance against changing conditions always within reach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Veelo Good value
Well ventilated and definitely keeps you warm enough on summer rides on descents. You might want to get a size down though, as my size is very flappy and unaero.
Otherwise, good quality material, compact when folded, but the zipper catches and the seams are undoing themselves a bit.
