Aldi are offering a load of winter cycle clothing in their latest Special Buys this Thursday (26th September), including a winter cycling jacket costing £16 and winter gloves for £5.
As is the usual deal with Aldi’s Special Buys, they have a limited stock so you need to be quick if you want to bag a bargain. Best to be at your local store nice and early then, to avoid disappointment.
They’ve got lots on offer this time, with plenty of winter clothing. The Winter Cycling Jacket (pictured above), costing £15.99, uses a 3-layer softshell material with a brushed fleece liner for added comfort and insulation. The outer layer is claimed to be waterproof and windproof, it’s probably water resistant at best, as most soft shells are. There’s plenty of reflective details, pockets galore and an elasticated waist with a dropped tail. It’s available in men and women’s sizes and colour options
The Cycling Rain Jacket costs £19.99 and is made from a waterproof and windproof material. There’s a full-length YKK zipper, vents in the side panels, elasticated cuffs, zipped chest and rear pockets and reflective details. Available in pink for women (yes, really) and yellow for men in various sizes.
A good base layer is the foundation of any cycling outfit at this time of year, and the £15.99 Merino Base Layer Top and Bottoms look just the job. You get all the good benefits of the natural material - anti-microbial, breathable, warm, doesn’t smell and is soft next to the skin.
Gloves are another cornerstone of autumn/winter cycling outerwear, and these Winter Cycling Gloves looks good considering they cost just £4.99. They’re lined for warmth and comfort, have reflective details, foam padding, Terry cloth on the thumb and anti-slip details on the palm and fingers.
What else is there? Ooh plenty, including LED lights (£2.99), waterproof cycling trousers (£9.99), reflective bands (£4.99), merino shirt (£14.99), ergonomic cycling socks (£3.29) and lots more. Head over to Aldi to see the full range of offers.
