Top Autumn Cycle Gear

Top Autumn Cycle Gear

With dark nights and chilly mornings, much of the challenge in cycling through Autumn lies in getting on the bike in the first place. But as a Norwegian cycling friend once told us “there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad preparation”. We asked friends and cyclists from the industry for  their top piece of gear to prepare for the Autumn commute.

HIPLOK DXC MAXIMUM SECURITY D-LOCK WITH CLIP + RIDE

Chosen By: Francesca Smith, Marketing & PR Director, Hiplok

“Our SUPERBRIGHT Series of wearable chains steals a lot of the limelight this time of year and quite right – they are great locks. But recently, with the cycling racks at work and the station, I’ve swapped my chain for D-lok and wouldn’t be without our maximum security DXC this winter. Security is a given with a 14mm Gold Sold Secure rated shackle and anti-rotational locking tabs but it’s size is super practical and the integrated cable is really useful for wheels and helmet. Plus of course, it’s reflectivity means I’ve been clipping it on to my bag strap to make me extra visible on my commute home.” 

HUEZ MOONRIDER GILET

“The Huez Moonrider Gilet is perfect for those shorter days, created for those who desire style and performance in equal measures. Made from a unique French fabric, the small golf ball like dimples retro-reflect light from every conceivable angel, make in the gilet astonishingly bright at night. The laminated mesh construction gives the garment 4-way stretch, a soft touch and waterproofness.

 The Moonrider also features our Quickburst zip, which allows riders to pop the garment open, ensuring they’re the fist in the peloton to cool down. This allows the gilet to be removed at lightning speed, meaning less time wasted while on the move.”

EXPOSURE STRADA 1200 FRONT BIKE LIGHT

Chosen By: James Gadd, Digital Copywriter, Cycle Republic

“The beam pattern gives a great view of the road and verges without dazzling oncoming drivers, and it’s powerful enough to let you take a detour through country lanes when you want to avoid the seasonal boredom. It’s almost like having a car headlight, which gives you loads of extra confidence when you’re out riding, and the status display helps you keep an eye on how much battery life you have left. Finally, the cable free design means it’s easy to fit and remove the light as needed.”
