The 2013 winter season is creeping up fast with the shorter days and colder nights. For those of us who seem to get out and bare the cold, being prepared and equipped can really make rides enjoyable.
Below are a few recommendations we have for your winter riding needs:
BLACKBURN SPLASHBOARD COMBO: When its wet out there, these fenders really help protect against mud and water so that you don't have a happy trail running up your back. They mount securely and easily on most framesets. Attaches on the downtube and seatpost.
SPECIALIZED XC LITE GLOVES: If you want to ride in the cold and still able to feel your hands while riding, these gloves are a must. The grip texture on the fingers is head debossed into the fabric for added longevity and all-weather performance. With a slip on cuff for a snug fit, it still has a ventilated upper mesh so that your hands don't get too hot and sweaty. It feels just right.
CRAFT PXC THERMAL TOP JACKET: Both form and function are really seen in this jacket, it wins in style points as well as practical points. The brushed fabric inside the jacket helps regulate temperature in cold conditions. When it gets too hot, there is a two way front zipper for ventilation. The fit for this is thoroughly designed to be the most comfortable when riding with its ergonomically placed seams.
CITY GROUNDS ARM AND KNEE WARMERS: We have arm and knee warmers that will hug you so hard that it's too hot to handle. Made here in the USA by Endo Customs, these arm and knee warmers really do its justice in the cold. Great for base layering, just to wear, sleeping, and cycling - duh.
ALTERNATIVE APPAREL BRIDGEPORT JACKET: Sometimes you just want to have a coat to ride your bike to the store, the bar, around the block. Sometimes you do not need to look pro and fully geared. The Alternative Apparel Bridgeport jacket brings a worn in a vintage style and comfort for the cold bearing days. The 14 wale Corduroy jacket features a detachable, contrasting drawstring hood and plenty of pockets.
CYCLEOPS MAGNETO TRAINER: There is no excuse that it is too cold to ride outside because now you can ride and train indoors with this great trainer that uses Power band technology for distinct resistance levels. The resistance level varies automatically based on the rider's cadence and wheel speed. Wow, its like having a real life cycling coach!
