One way to really fend off the seasonal winter blues is to combat the chill factor with super cosy warm cycling wear. Fortunately, there’s been a surge of new thermal performance wear for women to ride in, no matter the weather.
We know that keeping warm on the bike is a big factor for most riders. So with our ongoing efforts to keep you motivated this month, we’ve been reviewing some seriously warm kit to give you that little boost to get on the saddle.
British brand, Altura, are definitely a company that caught our interest. Their women’s cycling range is not only attractive and well constructed, but it’s also designed by female cyclists, for female cyclists. The Altura women are so dedicated to producing quality cycle wear that they head out on weekly rides with one another to assess kit and develop new ideas.
We’ve been out riding in Altura’s Synchro road kit recently, racking up the miles on the colder days and assessing its thermal claims. So how did we get on?
