Now’s the Time to Stock Up On Winter Cycling Essentials
From now until Nov. 27 (Cyber Monday), Competitive Cyclist is having its Big Brand Sale, a massive selection of discounted cycling gear from some of the online retailer’s “most coveted brands.” The sale includes products from Pearl Izumi, Shimano, POC, Yakima and more. Probably half of the products fall under the category of winter cycling gear — thermal jerseys, leg warmers, gloves, booties and so on. Below are five pieces of steeply discounted winter cycling gear that caught our attention.
P.R.O. Escape Thermal Jersey by Pearl Izumi $118+
Save up to $49: Blocks wind and traps heat. Best used in 40-60 degree Farenheit weather. Fits slightly less snug than a summer jersey so as to allow base layers underneath.
Select Escape Thermal Cycling Bib Tights by Pearl Izumi $75+
Save up to $50: All the benefits of a summer bib, but with an insulating fabric that’ll keep you warm well into the low 40s.
PRO Barrier WxB Shoe Covers by Pearl Izumi $25+
Save up to $25: Block debris, cold wind and splashes of watery slush, while improving lower body warmth with a fleece liner.
Universal GT Thermo Gloves by Gore Bike Wear $54+
Save up to $26: Insulated, waterproof Gore-Tex. ‘Nuff said.
Select Barrier Pullover Jacket by Pearl Izumi $45
Save $30: Because a thermal jersey can only get you so far. Pull this on when pleasant winter rides get nasty.
