"I do have problems keeping my feet warm on cold days. These socks seem pretty effective. I've used them on their own when the temperature is around 4/5 degrees and layered with thinner dhb socks when colder."
The Windslam Jersey offers effective windchill defence and all the features you need whilst out on the bike, making it the perfect layer for cool, crisp Autumn/Winter road rides. Engineered to a streamlined profile.
"First wore this on a chilly spring morning and it performed well. The body is certainly windproof but I found it a bit cool around the upper arms, but that is only because I'm used to total windstop. I would say that this will really come into its own when temperatures are 7/8C plus. Have to say, I'm very impressed with dub stuff - very good value and quality."
"I always like the high-vis gear because it makes so much sense from safety point of view - this jersey looks good and you can be seen. It works very effectively, is comfortable in hot conditions and seems to have some wind proofing qualities as well. I'm after another one!"

dhb 8cm Light Weight Cycling Sock Bundle - 3 Pack
Get kitted out with the newest 8cm unisex cycling socks from dhb. The 8cm Light Weight Cycling Socks Bundle contains three pairs in different colours so you can match your socks to your kit theme.
"These are the first cycling specific sock I have bought and from the reviews I had read, I did think they might be warmer than they actually are. That is not to say they are not good. In cool temperatures and probably normal summer conditions in the UK, I think they will be absolutely fine. They represent very good value and I am pleased with them."
"I'd been really unsure about which tight to go for and then a friend recommended these. Pleased with the fit and used them for the first time on a very windy January day. They were very good. They kept me warm and I found them so much more comfortable and efficient compared to cycling shorts under Ron Hills. Not sure how robust they will be as I have no experience with dub gear and I would like more reflective features but they do seem very good value for money and obviously perform well."
The GatorSkin Folding is the UK's favourite training tyre (formerly known as Ultra GatorSkin). With its DuraSkin™-anti-cut fabric and PolyX Breaker® also makes it suitable for commuting through to sportives as well as training.
A warm and elastic cycling cap that fits comfortably under your helmet. The Universal cap features a Windstopper Softshell front panel for effective windchill protection on cold winter training rides and chilly commutes.
"Up till now I had been using a buff as a helmet cap, but this soft-shell cap is so much better. Obviously it is a better fit but the best thing is the windstopper strip - it cuts out that chilling wind onto your temples. Well impressed."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

Croozer Road Front Mudguard
Elegant mud protection with the convenience of a fast fit, tool free mounting system.
"Bought as a set with the Swan rear mudguard. This is quite easy to fit and does not interfere with cables. However it does not protect lower legs as much as had hoped for. In hindsight I would only buy the Swan guard. The rubber ties do look a bit lightweight and I wonder how long they will last."
Warm and lightweight cycling tights with a Thermoflex fabric construction for insulation and comfort on while you build your base miles over the winter. Featuring a Kiss3 seatpad and Giro3 ankle grippers.
Are they effective in temperatures around 0?
How effective are they in the cold, windy weather that is typical of northern England in Jan/Feb? Really struggling to make my mind up on winter tights!

These are called thermo tights but are they as effective against the cold as Windstopper tights?
