some of our favourites
Night Vision Waterproof Jacket
The Night Vision waterproof jacket is the most recognisable part of the range. It has become famous among commuters for offering 360 degree reflectivity thanks to Altura's NightVisionâ„¢ technology and integrated rear light, while shrugging off the most torrential of downpours. Developed to get you seen in the darkest nights, you can trust NightVisionâ„¢ to get you noticed by any driver on the road. A unique two -ayer fabric, Ergofitâ„¢ pattern and technical venting ensure that you stay comfortable and cool no matter the conditions. For cycling in the city there is no better way to protect yourself from the elements and ensure that you arrive at your destination dry and contented. Available in a range of bright, visible colours, the Night Vision jacket is perfect for both men and women who want to look good, be safe and stay dry while cycling.
Peloton Progel Bib Shorts
Featuring Altura's ever-popular and fantastically comfortable ProGel 3D pad, the Peloton Progel bib shorts are firm favourites of ours. Cool and comfortable enough for a full day in the saddle, these shorts incorporate Altura's Dry technology, which moves moisture away from your skin, keeping you at the perfect temperature to perform and concentrate on the road ahead. Mesh zones keep the shorts breathable, while subtle reflective details give you piece of mind on rides that extend further into the evening than originally planned. Finished classically in black the Peloton Progel bibs are smart enough for the Sunday club run, however the multi-panelled fabric will withstand the rigour of daily use. Antibacterial properties stop the shorts from smelling and keep you fresh no matter how hard you ride. And the best bit? They're reduced at the moment in our sale!
Classic Crochet Mitt
Altura are known for their extremely technical products, however this doesn't mean they compromise on style. The Classic Crochet Mitt is a nod to the early days of cycling, blending modern materials with timeless styling. High-density foam padding absorbs vibrations to keep you comfortable, while stretch panels and a Velcro cuff keep everything in place. A microfibre panel lets you quickly wipe sweat or dirt from your eyes and stay focused, while the crochet back is naturally ventilated - making the mitts a perfect pair of summer gloves that will add a touch of style to any cyclist's wardrobe.
Core Windproof Gilet
An essential for the transition from spring into summer, the Core Windproof Gilet adds an extra layer of protection over a jersey on wet or colder mornings and evenings. Combining functionality and quality, Altura have produced this softshell gilet to keep wind and rain from bringing your core temperature down. Slim-fitting and stylish enough to wear on or off the bike, the gilet is comfortable and has zipped pockets to keep valuables safe and secure.
