As the season transitions into spring and then summer, it can be difficult to get your cycling clothing just right. Either you’re too hot, too cold and it doesn’t help if you live in an ever-changing climate, like the UK.
Not all commuters and urban riders like the feel of compression lycra and blinding high-vis clothing when they ride, it’s a personal preference. Luckily, there are a number of awesome technical jerseys and garments which look cool and casual while featuring a number of tech benefits.
Howies have long been making functional, stylish activewear as well as comfortable casual wear for the outdoor adventurer. They’ve introduced a limited number of spring/summer items in their collection, and we’ve been trying them out.
Howies Kawai Merino Jersey
Merino wool is fantastic to cycle in. It’s light, breathable, keeps you warm, soft to the skin and helps with odour control. It ticks more boxes than you knew you had, and the Kawai jersey is no exception.
This short sleeve jersey has been inspired by traditional Japanese cycling fashion. Carefully knitted, this top is striking with bold horizontal lines across the chest and around the back.
