The new lines are all specific for dealing with adverse conditions on the road, with reflectives, thermal and weatherproofing protection all featuring prominently.
Mavic have updated their Cosmic Pro H2O thermal winter jacket, which has a teflon treatment, reflective detailing and five pockets for storing ride essentials - coming with a big old £230 price tag. They've also expanded their women's-specific Sequence range, and there's a new convertible jacket (with removable sleeves), bib tights and jerseys available.
The new £150 Cosmic Elite Vision shoes takes an already popular line and add in reflective details for riding in low light. Mavic say the black and silver synthetic construction creates 360° visibility when illuminated without sacrificing any breathability.
We'll be looking to test some of the new kit soon, so keep an eye on our reviews section in the coming months...
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
