Our guide to essentials for cyclocross, winter road cycling & mountain biking;
Kids Arm Warmers that fit!
Slip-on sleeves to turn a short-sleeved jersey into a long-sleeved version. Perfect for cool mornings in Autumn & Winter. Great for early/late season Triathlon & Duathlon too. Removed in seconds, stashed in a back pocket if the temperature goes up. A range of colours to suit your existing Club/Team jersey, in child-specific sizes that fit. £10 a pair.
Thermal Leggings and Tights
A pair of Winter Bib Tights is essential for cold days, cx racing, road riding or MTB. Its critical to reduce the effect of windchill on a bike. Winter Bib Tights are great for this. Another key garment are ETC Warm-Up Tights, to warm a rider just before a race (or use as leg warmers) zipped to fit or remove without taking shoes off.
MTB & Cyclocross Shoes
Our range of Kids MTB & Cyclocross shoes from UK size 13 (Euro 32) upwards include the Northwave Hammer, Scorpius and Elisir to the Spiuk Rocca. Off-road design with reinforced heelpiece and toe caps, plus rubber lined anti-slip sole means they perform on all surfaces. Spiuk’s also have screw-in studs for muddier conditions.
Cyclists love their socks. They are pretty important, those little toes will suffer from the cold windchill if not protected. We have some great Winter kids specific socks and lovely Belgium dragon designs (the home of Cyclocrosss!) all in a great choice of colours, with Compression versions too.
Rain Capes and Jackets
Keeping wind & rain out is important, but so is proudly displaying your team jersey whilst racing – the Clear Funkier Cape is perfect – compact, stowable and see-through so your Club jersey & race number are still visible. We also have the waterproof Polaris Aqualite & Funkier Attack jackets.
Skull Caps, Neck Warmers & Bobble Hats
It’s those last little bits of exposed skin, that get the coldest. Simple items to cover up the face, head and neck. A Skull Cap with ear covers and a generous Neck Warmer to cover the remaining neck and face area. Keep them toastie warm and outside having fun. Bobble Hats are just too cool for school!
Crucial to keeping the cold out is the technique of Layering. On the coldest days, long-sleeved jerseys under a jacket are important. Add arm warmers as necessary. Long-sleeved cycling jerseys from Funkier and, Polaris in a range of sizes and colours for Autumn and Winter cycling.
Sunglasses and Saddle Guards
With the sun low in Autumn and Winter, it’s important to protect young eyes. But you don’t want to be borrowing Dad’s Ray-Ban’s! We have a range of child-specific sunglasses that fit little heads properly from the fixed lense UVEX to the multi-lense BBB. Another useful little thing to keep you clean and looking cool is a Saddle Guard...
Long-fingered, thermal lined gloves are a must to stop little fingers from freezing in a cold wind, but they still need to be thin enough to allow the necessary dexterity to operate brakes and gears. We have kids warm winter gloves (including waterproof) from Polaris, Giro, Chiba and Outer Edge.
