Cooling Down

There’s no denying that we’re heading into the last lap of 2020 now. It’s feeling distinctly crisper in the morning and evenings and the jersey and shorts combo of summer is now being beefed up with additional layers, extra coverage and a little more insulation. Autumn offers some great riding, with the right kit you can stay in the comfort zone and head out onto leaf covered lanes or gravel tracks to get your on/off road miles in.

We’ve gathered together a selection of some of our favourites from our brand new autumn range. No matter what road you’re on, we have the kit you need.

Pro SL PrimaLoft® Gilet II
The Pro SL PrimaLoft® Gilet was an instant classic – the perfect amount of PrimaLoft® GOLD insulation, just where you need it, in a form that packs up into a back pocket friendly bundle when you don’t need it. We gave the gilet a redesign last year to make it even better and we have new colours options for 2020. Pair it with a waterproof shell for wet weather warmth. Available for women and men.

Pro SL PrimaLoft® Jacket II
For colder, rather than cooler days the Pro SL PrimaLoft® Jacket is made for days when you can see how hard you’re working with your exhalations visible in your slipstream. Lightweight windproof shells panels deflect the wind, whilst stretch panels allow you the full range of movement. We’ve deployed PrimaLoft® GOLD insulation to keep you an ideal operating temperature. Check out the new Pumpkin colour – all treats, no tricks.

Pro SL Bibtights II
Leading the way in our revamped bibtight selection, our Pro SLs are the definitive winter longs. Based on our best selling and market leading bibshorts, they’re highly engineered with a Thermoroubaix fabric that’s been treated with a PFC free water repellent coating meaning they’re both warm and able to shrug off road spray. The Pro SLs (available for women and men) are back up by a pair of super-domestique in bibtights from our Windchill and FS260-Pro ranges that have also been re-jigged for autumn.

Women’s Xtract Roubaix L/S Jersey 
Simple is often better and our Women’s Roubaix Jacket has always been a prime example of this approach to design. It’s brilliant as an outer layer or dry, cool days or as a mid-layer on wet and cold ones. Two new colours join the line-up for 2020, including an eye-popping Hi-Viz Coral.

Strike Glove 
The Strike is the all-rounder in our glove family – waterproof, but without being bulky. We’ve given this favourite a makeover for autumn, with a new contemporary looking and wide choice of colours. Available for women and men.

Road Overshoe 
We know a thing or two about overshoes, having been in the game for decades and we have the right overshoes for the wrong weather. Our Road Overshoes are yet another best-seller to receive a redesign. Same superb use of neoprene to protect your feet from cold and rain and as hard wearing as ever.

Kids Nemo Glove 
Nothing spoils a family ride than kids with cold hands, so we’ve added a mini version of our latest Nemo gloves to our kids collection. Super stretchy neoprene that’s easy to get on and off and you might find them being used for snowball making when we hit winter too…

Bandwith and Jagged Socks 
We’re still a good way away from full on winter, so there is still time to show off your #sockgame with these crackers – add a splash of colour and bold patterns to your outfit.
