Review : : Polar Buff

Buff PolarSay hello to the Polar Buff which is fast becoming my best winter friend whilst training during these cold months in the UK.  This winter head and neck gear is lined with Polartec fleece at the base for extra warmth.  This will keep your neck, ears, head and chin warm in a variety of guises all demonstrated in Buff’s Ways to Wear video.

When extended over the head it will keep the warmth in and the wind off the ears whilst fitting snugly under your helmet.

A great product for its versatility and warmth keeping you comfortable to get on the with the hard work of pushing the pedals.  This will be an essential piece of kit on the colder days when cycling from London to Cannes.

Review : : Sportful R&D Wind Jersey

Sportful Long Sleeved Wind Jersey

Sportful R&D Long Sleeve Wind Jersey

I recently acquired this jersey and it has now been put through a couple of hundred miles.

I love the luminous yellow mesh which conceals the Polartec Alpha fabric on the inside front panels. Wickedly breathability.

It performed amazingly on a Yorkshire training weekend two weeks where cold temperatures and bitter wind were accompanied by occasional rain showers. Not a waterproof jacket but light rain will bead on the surface rather than soaking in.

Where this lightweight jersey really excels is during brisk tempo on cold rides. During periods of higher output there’s great airflow and excellent breathability. The jersey will also dry out quickly getting you back into comfort.

Flexibility is the word which sums up this jersey.

Like the elasticated waistband and easily accessible side pocket (on addition to three regular).

This jersey is the first piece of my kit to make the | kit bag | for Cycle To MIPIM
