Warm breathable Knee warmers with Castelli's advanced Nano silicone treatment for fantastic water resistance. NanoFlex fabric behaves just like Thermoflex fabric in dry conditions, but provides unbelievable water repellency when it starts to rain.

"Like all castelli nanoflex products great in autumn / winter but excel in harsh wet conditions. Pair these with some NanoFlex pro bibshorts and a Gabba jacket and you will be set for any winter riding."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

A lighter weight glove for when the temperature is mild but you still need to keep the chill off your hands. Slim palm for excellent bar, brake lever and gear shift feel.

"Got this as a replacement to my SuperNano gloves and so far I have not been disappointed. They are very comfortable, hi-vis and good down to just under 5 degrees. They much warmer than the SuperNanos though so think my hand will overheat when the temperature is in double figures."

The SpeedRide is the specialist for fast riding on harder surfaces. Whether asphalt, gravel or forest paths, thanks to the diamond-coated tread, the tyre rolls off quickly and quietly.

Heavyweight, neoprene, overshoe for deep Winter use. Tough TPU skin means rain won’t penetrate and thick neoprene gives the best level of insulation against the cold.

RunningMan69's Questions
 
Are you a serious roadie? If you are then you probably shave your legs, measure what you eat, obsess about your training regimen, and you read everything you can about cycling. If this is you then you're a CycleOps Jet Fluid Pro trainer user.
 

Is this ok to store in the garage?

Hi - I am looking for a turbo trainer for winter sessions but will be keeping the trainer in the garage. As a consequence it must be ok to store it at sub-zero temperatures. Is that ok with this model? If not what would you recommend the CycleOps Magneto Pro?

 Summer Short Finger Cycling Gloves
Summer Short Finger Cycling Gloves
Technical Summer gloves with a tailored race fit and advanced Assos fabrics for hot weather performance. The shock absorbing padded palm provides cushioning on long rides and the velcro-less construction slips on and off with ease.
 

How/where is hand diameter measured?

Hand diameter is measured around your hand with a tape measure across your palm. You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed. Do not include your thumb :)
