Ride through the winter with a similar lightweight feeling as your summer kit. The SanRemo Thermosuit combines a Trasparente Jersey, Sorpasso tights and the most advanced fabric technologies for full weatherproof coverage and total comfort.
"So took the plunge, bit the bullet and bought one of these.... Was I happy?
Yes, extremely happy. What a change. I used to wear dhb roubaix but was unhappy with a dodgy seat pad that would after 20 miles make me feel like sitting on a bed of needles might be more comfortable, and suffering with extreme cold. So I decided a more expensive item was in order. The moment I put it on I realised this was a brilliant idea. Warmth and comfort are vital to winter riding, this does just that, it keeps you warm, wind proofed and fantastically comfortable. It has fleece lining on both the legs, back and arms and is very well designed. Bearing in mind I decided to test it in nice strong gusting winds of up to 40 mph I think its safe to say it passed the windproofing element with flying colours. I managed to spill a bit of drink down me (embarrassing moment) while riding, the water simply beaded off which I was very impressed with, not sure if its fully waterproof that is no doubt subject to debate. If you're thinking of getting this and are unsure as I was whether it would be comfortable and more importantly worth it, let me tell you it was! Probably a good idea to get a base layer as well, and probably a decent jacket when the real extreme cold weather sets in but anything 6 degrees C and above you're probably alright with just the suit.
Looks pretty smart too I might add. Of course the yellow one is popular and look more stylish but I went for the white/red/black so people can see my arms a bit clearer when indicating while night riding which I do a lot both during summer and winter, it did the job and more importantly I felt safe and seen.
Happy customer :)"

CNP Elite Hydro Max Gel (Box of 24) 60g
CNP Elite Hydro Max Gel is a groundbreaking gel developed with Team Sky and British Cycling to provide easy to use energy for athletes who struggle to consume traditional gels.
"Thought i'd give these a trial and see how I got on. I was using High five Energy gels before hand, the first thing I noticed about these was they were lighter and less concentrated than High five Energy gels. However, In my own estimation and looking at figures I did not see any real performance change at all during activity, in fact I performed less well than I did beforehand but we all know that can be due to a variety of factors so I won't rule them completly out, if Team Sky and Team GB use them then CNP are doing something right. But what works for one person may not work for another and I think its important to bare that in my mind when buying anything really.
Saying that I must point out, if you don't like thick/concentrated energy gels this is a very good choice in that its very light compared to other counterparts."
"So I got some rapha shorts, and normal detergent I felt would ruin them, so I used some of this stuff, came up brilliant, found a rather nasty looking pair of cycling shorts in my cupboard gave them a go came up looking new. Does the job! Shall buy again"
"Whilst a little on the expensive side experience told me you get what you pay for. After horrible experience with Gatorade recovery drinks I thought i'd give the chocolate flavour a go. 10/10 for taste brilliant stuff, and I didn't feel 'hungover' either after what was a considerably long ride. Great product!"
Pros: High Quality
