How to keep finding
that motivation to ride
Unless you are lucky enough to live in a particularly warm region, you are likely facing several weeks of chilly weather before the really cold blasts hit. Autumn can be a wonderful time of year to be on your bike, but you have to start every ride prepared for the conditions. You’re in luck though, since Isadore is based in a part of the world that definitely has to deal with seriously cold conditions. We have the experience and expertise to design lots of options to get you through all stages of the cooler seasons.
No such thing as a cold Merino
It’s no secret that we love Merino wool here. This magical material can be used year round depending on weight, weave, and fabric mixture. For colder days, we have multiple Merino-based long sleeve jersey options that can be used from mild autumn till deep winter. Pair one of our Signature Long Sleeve Jerseys with the right Merino baselayer, and it will get you through chilly rides in October through to early December days. With Signature Thermal Bibs and Bib Tights to choose for your bottoms, our Essentials Line can turn this Autumn into your best riding block.
How to stay warm at high intensities
Though we recommend our Echelon Long
Sleeve Jersey can be worn down to temperatures around 10° C, it’s important to keep in mind that this is our high performance, race-ready line. That means that the Echelon LS Jersey has been designed using materials that are intended for high pace rides where the body will emit a lot of heat. Though insulated, it has a breathability that makes it ideal for your toughest Autumn rides. Throw on a jacket or gilet from the Echelon Line to keep comfy on especially windy days or long descents.
Sustainable kit to keep warm
For the moment our Alternative Line made entirely from recycled materials is just a portion of our clothing selection. But our long term goal is to create a Collection that will cover you head to toe in products made from 100% recycled materials. Each season we add more and more, and now we’ve included the new Alternative Long Sleeve Winter Jersey with thicker insulation and a Long Sleeve Baselayer for additional protection. So it's just a matter of choosing the right jersey for your own temperature comfort.
Keeping the extremities warm
You can have your core covered in wonderfully warm kit, but your ride will still suck if you can’t keep your head, hands, or feet warm. Adding the right accessories to your outfit may be just about the most important choice you make pre-ride in the colder months. Our selection of cold weather accessories will make sure you never have to turn around mid-ride because of painfully numb feet or hands.
