Riding in the winter is more enjoyable than you might think — as long as you dress for it. From head to toe, these new winter gear items will keep you warm and toasty in the harshest of conditions.
Head: Assos Fuguhelm Cap — $110
The face, head and ears are the areas most sensitive to extreme temperatures. On the bike, cold wind and rain can make things quite uncomfortable. This cap was built for below-freezing temperatures, and it’s one of the warmest and most comfortable we’ve tried. What makes it unique is that it’s also reasonably thin despite the fleece lining and will fit under a helmet easily. One little detail that will make a big difference are the two internal loops for your eyewear, which keep the arms of your glasses from acting like an open vent for cold air.
