These are the thinnest and subsequently, the most suitable socks in the Seal Skinz range for cycling. Ideal for cross, touring, winter training and mountain biking they keep feet bone dry and temperate without encroaching on performance cycling footwear’s snug fit. Every winter wardrobe should have a pair.
Made in the UK from wind and waterproof, breathable Coolmax, Seal Skinz hi Viz socks wouldn’t be my choice for performance road or cross racing but are just the ticket for three-seasons mountain biking, touring beyond the beaten track and more general outdoor use.
A winter all rounder, Endura’s Strike are equally suited to winter road and cross duties thanks to their blend of high quality waterproof construction, breathable membrane and classic understated detailing.
Sugio’s new jacket is part of their H.O.V. (Human Operated Vehicle) range designed for the fashion conscious commuter certainly fulfils what they set out to do: design a top with “technical performance with casual city style, a more leisurely, every-day look that easily switches from cycling trail to street cafe”
Cannondale’s new men’s Metro jacket provides an all year round outer layer for the avid short to mid distance commuter keen on battling through the elements come what may. If commuting in uniform or civvies is your bag, then this may just be the bag for you.
Polaris Neo-Lite overshoes are stylish take on the traditional overshoes. Frozen feet can make any ride a misery and once you’ve tried a pair of overshoes you’ll wonder how you ever coped without. But let’s face it: overshoes aren’t the most glamorous piece of kit. They’re usually made from thick neoprene and have all the style of a furry granny boot.
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?
Where most seatpacks are fabric-based affairs, the Ortlief Mudracer has a thermoformed semi-hard shell to keep out the elements. If you've got stuff you need to take on a ride, and you need to keep it dry this is the seatpack for you.
The Mudpack's weather protection starts with a full zip protected by a silicon rubber flap which pulls down to keep water and debris out. Inside there's a zippered pocket at the top that's just big enough for a phone, and a soft padded main compartment that'll swallow a spare tube, a basic toolkit and some energy bars.
With a healthy dollop of Scotchlite on all sides these overshoes are certainly a worthwhile addition to your night armoury, and the fact that your feet are constantly moving makes them even more visible. The fabric is a thin fleece with a waterproof PVC coating; it's stretchy, but not as stretchy as Neoprene, nor as warm. It is very windproof though, which is a bonus.
