Winter welcome â€“ cold weather clothing
You can’t fight it, in fact you might as well embrace it, winter is well and truly on the way. Riders all over the UK have been feeling a nip in the air and have begun the much-loathed process of sorting out their winter bikes and kit.
If you’ve been caught out by the changing of the season and are looking to bolster your armoury of autumnal items, look no further than our men’s and women’s selection of cold weather gear.
Offering brilliant protection from the elements and delivering superb visibility at the same time – the Deflect Reflect Hybrid Jacket is a fantastic choice for autumn and winter wear. This is quite simply the most advanced jacket Specilaized has ever made, knocking spots off the competition and keeping you dry, snug and safe no matter what the weather throws at you.
The jacket is made with our exclusive Deflect fabric, offering unparalleled protection from the elements and fantastic breathability, while it also features Schoeller® 3M® reflective material to boost visibility. Other smart features include a longer cut at the back to protect you from road spray and unzippable arms for when the clouds part and the temperature climbs. It’s available for both men and women.
Our Element bib tights are designed to keep you warm when riding in cold weather, while still giving you the comfort and performance support of a pair of high quality bib shorts.
For women we offer the Element SL Pro, made of strong but lightweight fabric that’s stretchable and abrasion-resistant. The straps are made with soft Lombardia fleece, for improved comfort and warmth, while the comfortable padding is designed specifically for women to give you the most comfortable ride possible.
The Element SL Race bib tights offer the same fleece straps and tough main fabric as the women’s SL Pro option, plus reflective ankle zips for high visibility and easy on-off. Temperature regulating padding makes for a comfortable ride, every time you pull the tights on.
Is it just us, or are your hands always the first part of the body to suffer when riding in cold conditions? Perhaps it’s the fact they’s positioned full in the wind, or that they’re kept still for periods of time between braking and gear changing – whatever the reason, fingers tend to feel the chill quickly, and more acutely than other body parts. That’s why a decent pair of gloves is absolutely essential – ideally ones that are waterproof too, given then tendency towards torrential rain in the UK in the winter months.
The Deflect H2O Gloves are the most effective waterproof gloves we make – they’re warm and breathable, as well as including tech features like touch-screen-compatible fingertips so you don’t have to remove the gloves to check your texts. They’re available in black, or neon orange for that extra bit of low-light visibility.
