Cycling Clothing in Winter for MTB and Road Bike
Mountainbike cycling clothing is perfectly well suitable for city, tour or your daily commute to work as well. MTB Winter Jackets allow sufficient space for wearing clothing underneath and some even feature hoods. MTB Winter Trousers are robust cover trousers made either completely from Softshell or at least feature a windproof membrane in the headwind area. They offer sufficient space for padded liner trousers or, on very cold days, for Winter Cycling Trousers.
MTB cycling clothing for winter often is completely waterproof and equipped with bonded seams. Because when riding in rough terrain your clothing requires protection not only from water but also from dirt. MTB fabrics in general are more robust so they do not rip immediately in case of an accident or when you get caught in small branches. Complete your MTB winter cycling clothing with waterproof and warm shoe covers and Winter Cycling Gloves and warm head wear. With such a complete outfit you can perfectly enjoy your trail in white winter landscapes.
The demand on winter cycling clothing is really high for performance oriented road bikers: clothing must feature an aerodynamic, tight fit, it should not restrict your freedom of movement, moisture and body heat must be able to escape easily, water and cold temperatures need to be kept out. And all that needs to be provided simultaneously … no wonder new specific fabrics and details are designed each and every season to meet these ever increasing demands. Often it is a mix of fabrics and features such as vents, bonded seams, Stretch panels and hems, Primaloft paddings, all kinds of Softshells and the classic, elastic Winterlycras that define the quality of winter cycling clothing. Different material thicknesses are used and specific materials are strategically placed. This way a wide range of road bike winter clothing is available for all temperature ranges and for any weather.
Whether for road bike, MTB, tour or city, Winter Cycling Clothing for Women only differs marginally from Winter Cycling Clothing for Men. The technical features are the same, print and fit of course are more feminine.
