Knowing how to make your cycling clothing waterproof again is a great skill to have. And when you see just how simple it is you’ll wonder why you have never tried it before…
Often, no matter how good a waterproof piece of clothing is, it will lose its effect after a while. So instead of investing in another jacket or pair of trousers with a hefty price tag, take a look at these products first because you might just be able to save yourself some pennies in the long-run.
Nikwax TX.Direct Spray-On
Nikwax produces a shed load of cleaning and waterproofing products that are really handy for cyclists. From sprays and washes specifically developed for fabrics used in the world of cycling (including softshells and wax cotton), there are two products that we strongly recommend you invest in.
Clothing can lose it’s breathability when it gets soaking wet, but the TX.Direct spray restores strong waterproofing and breathability back to your garments.
Simply spray it to the fabric and then leave it to air dry, it’s that simple. Just make sure you cover every piece of the garment, otherwise, the water will soon find its way in!
