We like to keep you updated on the latest Special Buys from Aldi, which frequently feature discounted cycle clothing, and the latest offer takes place this Thursday. This time they’re offering a range of Performance cycle clothing including winter jackets, bib tights, base layers and socks.
For the first time Aldi have produced this video showcasing some of the new garments and their features. It's rather slick and, well quite impressive really.
The Performance Cycling Jacket costs £29.99 and looks to be brimfull of features to keep you keep you cool, warm and dry where you need to be. Aldi don’t go into a huge amount of detail on their website, but we can tell you it’s made from a PerEffect material with what appears from the photo a slim cut. The panels are 3D cut with key moisture zones - okay, okay, mesh panels - to improve ventilation, a tall collar, OptiFit waist and cuffs and a full-length YKK zipper. It’s available in black/grey or black/blue in sizes m-xl.
Pair the jacket with these Performance Cycling Bib Pants for £29.99 for the complete winter cycling outfit. Constructed from a softshell fabric and featuring a Coolmax anti-bacterial silver finished insert and a short YKK front zipper. There are flat seams throughout for improved comfort and foot loop. There are lots of reflective details and “glow in the dark” piping to help you stand out in the dark.
Socks are an important part of any cycling outfit, and these Performance Cycling Wool Socks for just £3.99 look really good. Along with an ergonomic fit, they have toe and heel pads for added protection, a “movability pad” at the top of the foot and ankle padding. They’re available in various colours and sizes from 4 to 11.
We’ll end with the Performance Base Layer, available in a long sleeve top and pants. They’re both made from a compression PerEffect fabric with what Aldi call a 3D cut and moisture zones and what we'd call 'mesh panels' to aid breathability where you need it most.

We sent Caroline along to the last Aldi sale to check out the offers and you can read her impressions in this article. The best bit of advice it seems is to get there early and they only have limited stock and when it’s gone, it’s gone. If you do go along and grab a couple of items, let us know what you think of it.
