December 26, 2016

Feeling ready to get off the sofa, hit the road and put in some miles? Velovixen have put together their best kit to help ensure you stay warm and dry. Lets go…

Café du Cycliste Cosette Base Layer


Technical but incredibly cosy, with the perfect balance of breathability and insulation, the Café du Cycliste Cosette is the perfect merino-blend base layer. We love the grey marl and black colour block style and the nice collar detailing – perfection!
Cost: £69.00

Morvelo Dasch range


The whole of the Morvelo Dasch range is great, but our favourite piece is this versatile gilet. It will shield you from spray and light showers, block winds that stand in your way, remove excess heat and carry your many cycling goodies in its four pockets.
Cost: £80

Showers Pass Double Century RTX Waterproof Jacket


This ultra-light cycling jacket is perfect for wet weather commutes, a days ride and general everyday use. It’s fully waterproof, but can still fold up to be stashed in a back pocket. The fabric wicks moisture and lifts the membrane layer off the skin, providing a softer, dryer feel – without adding all the bulk. Its waterproof and has a durable water repellent finish to provide the best protection against the wet weather.
Cost: £125

Sealskinz All Weather Gloves (Black/Hi-Vis Yellow)


These Sealskinz All Weather Gloves are fully waterproof and windproof, yet still breathable (so you won’t get sweaty). The soft and durable AX Suede Quattro palm has foam pressure point padding for increased grip and comfort and the inner lining won’t cause a fuss by moving around. Extended cuffs eliminate horrid drafts whilst riding and you can use the PU wiper on the thumb to wipe away sweat and snot (you will do it – everyone does!).
Cost: £45.00

Sealskinz Oversock


The Sealskinz Oversock is a lightweight performance cover for your cycling shoes – so you don’t end up with soggy, cold (wet wrinkly) feet.  Made using StretchDry technology, these socks provide 100% waterproof-ness, act like a shield against the wind and at the same time, let your feet breathe. Simply pull the sock over your cycling shoe and adjust to achieve a streamlined and comfortable fit.
