Welcome to the Winter Apparel Guide

When the mercury drops and some cyclists trade their road bikes for trainers, others look forward to the beauty and the solitude of winter riding. As any year-round rider can attest, the right clothing is the key to winter riding success, and a single poor choice can sap the enjoyment from an otherwise successful outing. In this guide, we’ve highlighted our favorite pieces and accessories by temperature range to ensure that your kit keeps you warm and dry during the most underrated riding season.

Jackets

Your jacket is the workhorse of your winter kit and an essential outer layer for the prepared winter rider. Responsible for blocking frigid wind and precipitation while keeping you warm—but not too warm—the right jacket will cover a wide range of conditions and should be selected with your area’s specific winter weather in mind.

Long Sleeve Jerseys

Depending on your location, a long sleeve jersey can serve as a warming mid layer in frigid temps or as a highly effective outer layer for warmer days and milder climes. Keep your intended use in mind, as features like water resistance and wind-blocking panels translate into additional comfort when worn in lieu of a jacket.

Baselayers

Although its importance is sometimes overlooked, a good baselayer is a critical component of a strong winter kit. Look for an appropriate amount of warmth for the temperatures in your area and demand excellent moisture-wicking properties—moisture management is essential for staying warm and comfortable in the cold.

Bib Tights

A great set of bib tights is a balancing act between appropriate weather protection, just enough warmth, and the same considerations that affect bib short choice such as fit, materials, and chamois. Although bib shorts and knee warmers typically get the nod on warm winter days, we consider bib tights a cornerstone of a well-stocked winter wardrobe.

Gloves

For seasoned winter riders, gloves are the subject of much debate as the correct amount of warmth and insulation varies both by your climate and your physiology. It’s worth the time to get this choice right. The perfect pair of gloves can expand the weather range of your kit.

Shoe Covers

The extremities are the first parts of the body to succumb to cold, which makes keeping your feet warm an essential piece of the puzzle. To get the best from any of these options, consider pairing with a set of shoes a half size larger than you’d typically wear. That extra room allows for better circulation which directly translates into extra warmth.

Cycling Caps

Much like gloves, the right winter cycling cap can expand the range of your kit. Insulation and wind-blocking materials retain maximum warmth, while a lightweight option keeps you from overheating on warmer days.
