That's where Altura's new Grid Collection comes in.  This exceptionally stylish new range of waterproof jackets and trousers is designed to offer all of the practical benefits you'll require to pedal to your workplace, while at the same time looking good enough to wear when you're not sitting on a saddle. 

With good looking, but superbly functional, pieces such as the Altura Grid Parka, Field Jacket and Half Zip Softshell Hoodie your outerwear should no longer be an excuse for not riding to work.
