What to Wear – The 2016 CX Version

It’s cyclocross season, friends. There are a lot of important decisions to make in ‘cross – from what equipment to roll with to how to best tackle a course… One decision you don’t need to make is what to wear – either on-course or during your training rides.

Our staff recommendations for cyclocross racing also apply to your fall road rides, when conditions can be iffy and the weather can turn on a dime. Be ready for everything from rain and mud to snow and sleet by gearing up for this fall cyclocross season.

The Pro Adrenaline Race Cape was designed with race day in mind. Race number visibility means that your bib number is visible through the jacket. It’s also great for non-race day rides with any threat of rain. It’s lightweight and packs up into your jersey pocket to be available when you need it. The breathable material ensures you won’t steam up with hard efforts when you do need it.
