You are our lucky 4 winners of the winter essential kit and you'll be hearing from HTP soon. 

For everybody else, better luck next time, and thank you for entering.

Last week’s competition was all about staying warm and riding inside... but if you’re like me and you’d prefer to be outside battling the elements on your bike, then this week’s prizes from Hydra Tech Pro (HTP) will be right up your street.

HTP is giving away four packs of winter essential kit, consisting of the classy Pioggia overboots, Pioggia leg warmers, long sleeve base layer, and neck tube. Each pack is worth £132.47, and there are male and female options available.

Hydra Tech Pro’s aim is to create a wet weather cycling wear system; and with its cycling roots firmly in the soil of the North West of England, it’s no surprise that the brand understands the demands that being out on your bike in the cold and wet weather puts on your kit.

Pioggio Winter Overboots

Made with Windtex thermal fleece-lined fabric, which HTP says is waterproof and windproof, this overboot has been designed for those wet and windy winter rides. The Pioggia overboot provides windchill defence with a thermal fleece lining to ensure insulation, and combat the cold temperatures.

The overboot also features taped seams, a waterproof zipper, and a high cuff with silicone grippers which helps keep the rain and cold at bay. Along with water resistance and an aerodynamic fit, this boot also offers all the protection you will need for the coldest days, while still looking stylish.

Here are a couple of quotes: "These Pioggia Winter Overshoes are ideal those who crave kit in a race cut but want the warmth of a bulkier overshoe.

"With the thermal fleece lining on the inside – that is super-soft to touch – the close fit of these overshoes is really comfortable” .

Pioggia Leg Warmers

Designed and manufactured in the UK with the best Italian performance fabric, HTP says these leg warmers feature a perfectly ergonomic shaped fit, with silicone grippers on both the upper thigh and lower ankle. Unlike most leg warmers these have been designed to fit on top of the overboot, with the silicone gripper and snug fit ensuring the leg warmer remains in place throughout. HTP has also incorporated a dual-sided silicone leg gripper at the top to prevent unwanted movement.
