Entry-level clothing range available from the end of February

If you’re just starting out in cycling and are after some good value kit to get you out on the road without breaking the bank, then Boardman’s updated clothing range could well be the way to go.

Available online and in store at Halfords from the end of February, the Boardman range includes all the basic pieces of kit in both men’s and women’s versions. So that means jerseys, shorts (both with and without bibs), jackets, gloves, socks, and caps are all included, with different cuts for different men and women.

The Removable Sleeve Jacket is probably the highlight of the range

Possibly the highlight of the range is the Boardman Removable Sleeve jacket (£44.99), which does exactly what it says on the tin, with sleeves which can be removed using zips to enable you to turn it into a thermal gilet for when things aren’t quite so chilly. Boardman also says that the fabric is windproof and breathable, with reflective stitching for a little added visibility.

However, if you’re just after the bare necessities for riding in summer, then the basic cycle jersey and shorts cost just £29.99 each, so you can be out and about in matching kit for less than the price of a pair of Assos leg warmers.
