Let's be honest, cycling in the colder seasons can feel like a bit of a chore. But it doesn't have to be. We believe the key to enjoying riding at this time of year is being prepared. It's why we've devoted the past four years to developing a cold weather range that gives you the tools to take on whatever those stubborn months have in store. Combining everything we know about comfort and fit with the best technical fabrics around, this range of carefully-considered pieces is made to protect you against the elements, so you can continue enjoying the sport you love all year round.
“Our Thermal 2 jersey is the perfect cold weather staple. An updated version of our original Thermal jersey, the Thermal 2 incorporates a brand new, stretchier brushed lycra which allows for better movement and breathability. The inside is soft and fleece-like, making it great at keeping warm air close to your body. Wear it on its own on mild cooler mild days or layer under a windproof vest or shield jacket when there's a greater wind chill.
The Italian fabric in this jersey is also 100% recycled. Each one is made from approximately 14 1.5litre plastic bottles which have been repurposed into yarn.”

The technical fabrics in our jerseys are designed for movement, and will naturally stretch. It's why you may find you fit into more than one size bracket. So to help you find the best fit for you, we recommend you follow the steps below.
How To Measure Up
- CHEST: Start by measuring your chest all the way around at the fullest part with your arms by your sides. Don't rely on your shirt or suit size. Then use this number to see which size options you fall into from our size chart below.
WAIST: Next, measure your waist all the way around at the fullest part. This'll usually be around your belly button. Don't rely on your jeans or trousers size. Then use this number to see where you fall on our size chart. If your chest and waist measurements put you in two different size brackets, we'd recommend opting for the larger size.
SLEEVE AND ZIP LENGTH: Use the numbers in the sleeve and zip length columns to work out how each size will fit on you, and make sure you're happy with the lengths. Keep in mind that our Long Sleeve Thermal Jersey has a dropped collar, so the zip will start about where your collar bones meet.
FIT: Consider how you want your kit to fit. Do you like it quite close fitting? Or prefer it a little looser? Make sure your chosen size reflects how you like to wear it.
- TRYING ON: When trying on your new jersey, we recommend you do so with a pair of cycling shorts or tights as this will give you the most accurate gauge of how it’s going to feel when you’re on your bike. And remember that ultimately, our kit is designed to be worn on a bike – not up right in front of a mirror. So while we ask you not to actually use the kit when trying on, it’s a good idea to position yourself in your regular riding position and see how it feels.
STILL IN DOUBT? GET IN TOUCH: If you're still unsure, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to assist you. We'll always start by asking if you've measured yourself and where your measurements put you on our size chart, so it's definitely worth doing this first. We may then be able to offer a bit of extra guidance on how it'll fit.

FYI, the sizing of our Thermal Long Sleeve Jerseys changed in 2020. If you bought a jersey before September 2020 and like the fit, have a read of our blog to find out more info on our sizing changes.
While we do our best to accurately display the true colours of our garments in all photography on our website, sometimes the actual colour may vary in real life. This is because every monitor has a different capability to display colours, and that everyone sees these colours differently.
