The mornings are darker and the temperature is slowly dropping. Still the rider rises, clips in and pedals through the darkness guided by the light.
While the seasons may be changing, there is no need to change your riding habits. With the correct, functional clothing by MWCC, riders will remain warm and comfortable throughout the ride.
All of our riding collection has been tested on the cobbles of Flanders. With the wind and rain continually testing the product that we deliver to you, to ensure that it performs without compromise for the most discerning riders.
As fellow riders we understand that being prepared for the conditions helps you get out the door when your mind is saying no. For that reason we provide a multitude of options to cater for all of your riding styles and conditions. All of the products on offer provide a luxurious balance of versatility and style with the essential characteristic of MWCC.
Readers can access the MWCC Galleria via: https://aucustom.champ-sys.com/teamstore/?WinterDirectOrder until 8 April.
The winter products have been designed to provide you with items that will last you a number of years.
“My go to piece is the wind vest. Perfect as the conditions cool, I can start my ride with it on and then pop it in my back pocket once warmed up. Then in winter, I use it as another layer over my long sleeve.” – Jim, MWCC Club President
As the temperature cools think about layering your outfits. Throughout autumn start with a base layer, before adding your jersey, arm warmers and a wind vest. This allows you to easily remove clothing as the temperature is more than pleasant by mid morning.
As we move further towards and into winter, start with a base layer before reaching for the CS Tech long sleeve fleece jersey, for those who are particularly susceptible to the cold consider a thermoshield jacket. Add fleece knee warmers, shoe covers, a cycling cap and long fingered gloves – that will get you through the coldest of Sydney mornings. All available through our store or currently in stock.
‘From the World Tour to West Head, the world’s most demanding races – require the highest standard of clothing’
The Apex jerseys are for riders wanting a World Tour tested jersey, a jersey that has ridden Grand Tours and would be at home on West Head. The Apex Jerseys are designed for marginal gains, tailored specifically for an extremely close fit, allowing minimal air resistant to create an aerodynamic product.
A variety of different fabrics are used throughout the jersey. The shoulder, sleeves and rear panels feature a dimple fabric specifically designed for minimum drag. The same one-way “shark” fabric used on Olympic speed suits.
There are two jersey options in the Apex Collection – the standard Apex Jersey and an aero jersey. If you are moving from a standard Performance jersey, we would recommend that you go up one size. The Apex jerseys have been designed for the profile of a professional rider, please consider this when selecting your size. They are a tighter fit than the performance jerseys.
The Apex Bibs have been designed to provide a fine balance between all day comfort and maximum performance. The Apex bib short is a very close, tight fitting bib short. Constructed with carbon thread in specific areas to ensure maximum compression which leads to optimal comfort and power output. As a result the bibs are suitable for intense criteriums or multi stage tours.
“A cycling cap under the helmet always. In summer for the sweat, in winter it keeps me warm. Particularly because I am partially bald” – Dave Watkinson, Fat Old Roadies Leader
Our most popular collection for the last few years, this podium winning collection has been the standard that MWCC has set, it has been our highest selling jersey and bib combination. If you have made a prior purchase from the club directly, this has been a Performance Jersey in a Race Cut and Performance bibs with the additional leg length and Gran Fondo chamois.
All jerseys for 2017 come with a zippered water resistant gear pocket with a reflective strip on the rear of the jersey.
The Performance bib are your standard cut of bib shorts, providing firm support where required and whether you are leading the group into Palm Beach on the Coast to Toast or on a recovery spin, these will be your ‘go to’ bibs. We recommend the additional leg length and Gran Fondo chamois.
HOW TO ORDER
Please note that all previous orders have been completed in a ‘race cut’ for the jerseys, please refer to the inside collar of your prior jerseys for reference. MWCC have always ordered the additional leg length in the bibs, this results in a bib short approximately one inch above the knee. Our preference is the Gran Fondo Chamois.
Orders can be placed until 8 April and will be delivered 4 weeks post this date.
