With fresh shipments from Sealskinz, Santini, and Showers Pass, we’ve got new winter riding gear to kit cold weather cyclists from top to toes. We’ve covered the bases: windproof caps and helmet covers, storm-repellent jackets and pants, overshoes for any condition, and socks and gloves to protect precious digits.
The middle of the winter can make enjoyable summer cycling feel like a distant dream. Thank goodness cyclocross is here to save us! As the 2023 Cyclocross World Championships at Hoogerheide approach, the start lists become increasingly interesting. Who is racing, who is skipping the race to focus on the Classics, and who is peaking at the right time? Some of our favorites are lining up to make this an amazing year to watch.
The Santini Vega Xtreme jacket is an exciting addition to our stock of winter riding apparel, and presents a pinnacle piece of high performance outerwear for serious year-round cyclists. Santini's Vega line of cold climate cycling apparel is designed so you can ride in the harshest weather conditions.
Layering garments in cold weather has always been an integral part of maintaining a comfortable body temperature. However, thanks to advancements in modern fabrics, we're now able to layer a little differently - we're able to wear fewer layers. Fewer layers means feeling less bulky in winter wear, and for athletes, the ability to move more freely when every movement counts. Today, Italian base layer manufacturer Outwet, is leading these advancements with their garments.
Winter Socks, for many cyclists, are a key piece of the winter cycling kit as frozen toes can cut long training rides for crucial base miles short. Gone are the days when simply layering thick socks would suffice. Today, making socks waterproof has become an impressive combination of fabric technology and quality craftsmanship.
