I don’t know about you, but this weekend I had to pull on the thermals and dig out the baselayers because it was biting out there at the early hours. The clocks have gone back and the days are drawing in so it’s about time we reconsider our winter cycling wardrobe.
British cycling brand, Queen of the Mountains, set out to inspire and empower women to perform their best on the bike, and have fun doing it. The brainchild of creator, Alicia Bamford, the cycling apparel brand has gone strength-to-strength as they continually introduce stylish and practical cyclewear into the market.
TWC was lucky enough to get their hands on the new winter collection a little early this year and here’s how we got on…
Winter Merino Jersey
Merino wool technology has really come into full-force this year as we see many more brands utilise its unique properties.
Queen of the Mountains has developed a merino jersey for winter which is soft against the skin with a brushed textured finish on the outside. There are three spacious pockets in the rear with one waterproof zipped pocket on the side panel.
There’s a full-length zipper along with an elastic silicone hem to grip to the bibs, helping the jersey to stay in place.
Like with any merino wool product, great care needs to be taken when washing and drying the garment in order to preserve its shape and ideal properties. Be sure to check the care instructions before throwing it into the machine with all your other kit, bits and socks!
