SEASONAL SUGGESTIONS

PREPARE FOR CHILLY STARTS

Wear removable layers like gilets, warmers and gloves, then take them off when it warms up.

BE READY FOR RAIN

Always carry a waterproof jacket or gilet that packs down into a jersey pocket, ready for the rain.

STAY BRIGHT IN LOW LIGHT

For early starts, reflective garments help ensure you’re visible even in low light conditions.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

LAYERING

It pays to prepare with one or two extra layers in spring. Build on firm foundations with a breathable, sweat-wicking base layer beneath your jersey and add removable layers like jackets, gilets, gloves, arm warmers and leg warmers for a fully configurable outfit.

PACKABILITY

To shrug off sudden showers and ward off the worst of the wind, always make space for a packable jacket or gilet that can be stowed in a pocket, pulled out and put on when needed.

VISIBILITY

When riding early in the morning or later in the evening, it’s important to make sure you’re visible. Pick from our broad range of products with reflective detailing to make sure you stand out.
