When the glorious British weather comes out to play, it's a good idea to be prepared for whatever it may throw at you. The winter weather is slowly creeping its way into those chilly morning rides, and the new SealSkinz Winter range is here to help.
SealSkinz are one of the industry leading brands for all-weather performance accessories. In mountain biking, you'll rarely see a rider without a pair of their long waterproof socks on. They use innovative ideas and cutting-edge technology to produce incredible protection against the elements.
Not only have they released a number of new pieces to save your numb fingers and toes from those frosty rides, but they've incorporated new safety technology too...
SealSkinz Winter Halo Gloves
These gloves do it all. They're waterproof, windproof and breathable which is ideal for both commuters and road cyclists. In addition to this, they have a set of high powered white LED’s built into the shell on the back of the hand for added visibility.
Using a simple operating system, in the form of a button located in the cuff, you're able to switch between flashing and continuous modes. These LED lights are visible from 300 metres away, and they deliver up to 200 hours of run time from the replaceable CR2032 battery.
The design of the glove itself is rugged and dexterous. It benefits from pressure point padding for comfort, silicone palm for increased grip and tabs on the index finger and thumb for use with touch-screen devices - Never miss a Strava moment!
If you're a runner or triathlete, SealSkinz has a Halo running glove which incorporates the same LED technology. Click here for more information.

SealSkinz Winter Halo Overshoes
Sealskinz has created the first ever road cycling overshoe which incorporates 4Lumen LED technology to increase rider visibility in low light.
The light operates in three modes: fast flash, slow flash and continuous. The rider can simply switch between these modes using a push button. The light sits in a pouch at the heel to provide visibility from the rear for up to 500 meters. It can last up to 240 hours, and is powered by a replaceable CR2032 battery.
Available in two versions, the Neoprene Halo Overshoe is designed for cleated cycling shoes and the Lightweight Halo Overshoe has an open underfoot. Suitable for all footwear, this overshoe is perfect for all cyclists.
Sizes: Small - X.Large
