Riding in Autumn and Winter can be ‘character building’. Fortune favours the brave in the Northern Hemisphere at this time of year. Gone are the fast rolling dry trails, replaced by increasingly technical riding thanks to the moist conditions under pedal. Its no time to be ducking out and missing riding, if you are prepared with the correct riding gear. You can embrace the season and get out and enjoy the wildness.
Our premium Blackline collection has established itself as a firm favorite in the riders' arsenal for tackling winter conditions. For the colder months it's all about layering to regulate your temperature for your ride.
Pair our award winning Blackline trail pants with a merino baselayer and lightweight jerseys. Pack a Blackline Wind or Waterproof jacket in your stash bib shorts and don some merino socks and Blackline winter gloves to to complete the look.
For 2022/ 23 we've expanded our technical line up to include new jackets and some fresh colourways. On top of this we now offer more sizing options for men, women and youths.
Layering for winter is somewhat of an enigma, so we enlisted Nukeproof-Sram Factory racing ace Kelan Grant and partner Fay O'Connor to show us how its done. As residents of Northern Ireland, they are specialists in embracing "challenging" conditions. Check out below how to prepare for the best that winter can throw at you. .
