With a little planning and the right choice in gear, cold-weather riding can actually be very enjoyable.
We trawled through the range of Bontrager’s cold-weather riding gear and picked out a collection of their new and finest jackets, warmers, gloves, socks, casquettes and more.
Bontrager Classic Cycling Cap
This cotton construct casquette bumps up your comfort factor by adding a layer of warmth on those chilly outings. It fits under all helmets and the peak is designed to be worn up or down – as conditions demand – to protect your eyes from the sun and rain.
Bontrager Softshell Shoe Cover
A softshell, water-resistant and wind-proof shoe cover that will keep you rolling in comfort. We recommend them for those days when the temperatures are around 15° or lower. They fit dial or buckle closure systems on road or mountain bike shoes. If your chilly season rides are mostly on the road then checkout the high visibility yellow option.
Bontrager Windshell Toe Cover
Made from a windshell material they shelter your toes from the cold. We recommend these for temperatures around 18° or lower and once you’ve tried them you will wonder how (and why!) you ever rode without them.
Bontrager Thermal Arm Warmer
The staple of any seasoned riders gear collection. Available in four sizes, the Profila Thermal fabric traps in heat and wicks out moisture. You will love the soft, comfortable feel of the jacquard gripper which stops the warmers from sliding down.
Bontrager Thermal Knee Warmer
As a rule of thumb, when the temperature dips under 20° you should consider using warmers to protect your knees from the cold and from injuries. With a left / right specific design for comfort and an inner gripper to keep them in position, these unisex thermal knee warmers promise to keep you warm and dry.
Bontrager Thermal Leg Warmers
Your legs won’t even know it’s winter. The breathable, moisture-wicking fabric traps body heat to keep you toasty on those chilly rides. We love the comfort of the soft brushed interior and the wide gripper band with a silicone insert which keeps them in position. If temperatures creep up during your ride they are easy to roll down and stash in your pockets.
Bontrager Circuit Windshell Gloves
A windproof, water-resistant and lightweight glove with silicone inserts to improve grip in wet conditions. Thermal inserts and longer cuffs will keep you warm and comfortable when the weather is iffy. You will love the touchscreen-compatible fingertips. Available in black or visibility yellow.
Bontrager Race 5″ Wool Socks
A long (13cm) Merino Wool sock to keep you toasty from autumn, through winter and well into spring. The extra length helps when layering with leg warmers and is on trend for mountain or road riding. Available in grey or black.
Bontrager Vella Women’s Thermal Glove
We just love these multi-purpose thermal gloves that keep you warm on the bike or when running errands. The seamless palm improves comfort and the longer cuff will keep you warm no matter the weather. Available in pink or blue.
Bontrager Vella Women’s Thermal Long Sleeve Jersey
A light grey fitted cut in a stretchy fabric bumps up your comfort and warmth on cooler rides. The front half zip helps with ventilation when climbing and a full zip across a pocket on the rear panel stores items securely. We love the drop-in security pocket which hides and holds your phone securely.
Bontrager Vella Convertible Women’s Windshell Jacket
A lightweight and water repellent fabric jacket with removable sleeves so you can wear it as a vest. The Vella has a zipped rear pocket which is ideal for stowing the sleeves plus a relaxed fit for improved comfort.
Bontrager Circuit Softshell Jacket
The fit is flattering and the fabric has stretch for that un-restricted feel. This jacket is ideal for layering up or layering down for road riding or shredding the trails right through winter. A little thermal fabric around the cuffs and armpits improves breathability.
Bontrager Circuit Stormshell Jacket
When it’s raining cats and dogs – this is the one. The beauty of this Stormshell is it’s lightweight feel with maximum waterproof rating – Bontrager’s highest. Available in four sizes and two colour options.
Bontrager Circuit Windshell Jacket
Take the nip out of the air with this lightweight windshell which is absolutely crucial for out of summer rolls. The cut is semi-fitted with a drop-tail design and adjustable hem cord. We love the reflective detailing and its water repellent properties. Available in three colours.
Bontrager Velocis Thermal Long Sleeve Jersey
For long or short rides this thermal long-sleeved jersey, in a fitted cut, is the business. Why? – because the full-length zip, breathable fabric and three open pockets are all you need to keep on stomping no matter the weather.
