Winter bike gear.
« on: 04 December 2019, 08:31:08 AM »
What do you use  in this cold weather ?
I have been using a keis premium heated sleeveless jacket run off the bike battery.
Halvarsons Merino wool base layer under the Keis.
If its really cold I use my Rukka down jacket on top of these .
Rukka Nivala Jacket ,and pants(with down liner) .
RTS Gortex boots with  long Merino socks,Dainese Gortex travel Gloves .
Shoei GT Air 2 Helmet .
This outfit has kept me warm and dry over the Alps and 3 British winters.
It did cost a lot but with a 6 year w'tee on the Rukka and Lifetime on Gortex  from leaking I guess its a good investment.
And they say a warm ridder is a safe rider!

Blimey, your riding gear costs more than my bike. All good choices but out of my league.

Rukka jacket & trousers - 3yrs old and can't remember the type. But as said, 6 yr guarantee from Infinity so good investment.
Rukka R Star twin chamber gloves with Bob Heath visor wipe
Siddi Adventure 2 boots
Shoei GT Air 2
Screwfix Baselayer & Micro Fleece
Oxford thermal socks
Fleece neck warmer.


All good, waterproof and toasty with heated grips.
Those are my principles...if you don't like them I have others.
