The ideal kit varies a lot over the winter months - not just between cyclists, but each rider's needs will vary again depending upon the ride planned and temperature that day.

While the best winter cycling jackets are great for keeping warm when tapping out the miles, with their high loft and thick weather barrier protection fabrics, when you start picking up the tempo you’ll want something a little more slimline and breathable but still warm, like the Rapha Pro Team Long Sleeve thermal jersey.
