I ❤️ My: All-Season Ridewear

by 3

Amanda shares with us the kit that gets her through ride after ride, day after day, through all the seasons. I’m a big fan of layering and I like to travel light when mountain biking. In an ideal world I would have one set of kit for all seasons and just layer myself up like a lasagne as the days get colder… Thanks to the weather being so inconsistent and unpredictable in recent months, I seem to have nailed a kit list for all occasions.  Isobaa Merino 150 Short Sleeve Crew/180 Long Sleeve Price: £60.00 150 SS, £75.00 180 LS......

    I’ve always found that the merino doesn’t smell but the soft-shell around it can get a bit noxious/feral. It does get one a space at the bar though which is nice.

    I love merino. We once did an amazing ten-day cycling trip in Mongolia, where it was mainly hot. I did it wearing a grand total of two merino cycling jerseys, each for a five day stretch, and they absolutely brill.

    Where it’s not great is high-ish intensity stuff in the cold, as it doesn’t wick as well as manmade stuff so will hold damp a bit, which isn’t great when/if you have to stop for a bit.

    @IHN my experience with Merino was that it worked well under Paramo kit in excessive cold as the shell liner moved the damp out quite smartly. I agree that if one did high intensity activity and then stopped it was cold, but slowing down after hard work gave everything a chance to work properly (ice and mixed Scottish climbing/walking).
