(The Gear Loop) - Velobici, purveyors of high-end and handmade cycling garments designed and manufactured in England, has added a thermal range of clothing to keep hardy road riders looking cool but staying warm this winter.

According to the company, the Hugo Thermal jersey and bib shorts feature heat regulating properties and weather resistance for riding in cooler conditions.


Although still boasting the same classic styling and heritage silhouettes, the thermal jersey is made from a two-layer thermal performance fabric, dubbed VB/Pro TI1. This material, developed in-house, helps the body to adapt to a wider temperature range, ensuring riders don’t overheat or get too cold.

There’s a matching set of bib shorts, too, which compliment the sage colourway of the jersey and pack the same two-layer construction for heat-trapping properties. VB also adds in its own 3D cell chamois pad for comfort over long rides.

A colour complimentary Hugo Thermal Base Layer is also available for hardcore riders pedalling into the cooler months, which features flat lock seams and a rear drop-back hem to make sure all the key body parts are covered and comfortable.

The kit isn’t cheap, with the water and wind resistant jersey coming in at £220, the bib shorts costing £220 and the base layer setting riders back £70. Check out the Velobici website if you’re feeling flush.
