What To Wear For Winter riding

Winter's Here and We've Got You Covered From Head To Toe


The weather has taken the usual seasonal turn for the worse. It's snowing outside, but that's no reason not to go out on your bike and enjoy yourself. When it's cold the first place that it hits you on the bike is in your hands and feet, then it spreads to your head and pretty much soon after that it starts working its way through to your core, and then that's any ride well and truly knackered. Well, fear not, at Planet X we have an incredible new range of winter clothing that will keep you warm, dry and happy on your bike.

Keeping your hands warm is the first stage in the game and we've updated our gloves this season to make them warmer, dryer and more windproof than ever before. We think they offer the best value for money in the whole of cycling and we sell thousands of pairs every winter, so there's a pretty good chance that we're right.

Crab Hand 100% Waterproof Glove

Our warmest Planet X 365 winter glove, breathable, windproof and fully insulated, ideal for club runs, deep winter endurance rides, winter training rides where nothing but the best will do to keep the cold from your hands. Built using a 3 layer system with a Hipora waterproof membrane these are simply superb. Ride with confidence even when the temperature plummets below zero our Crab Hands will keep you warm and dry.

Planet X 365 Convertible Race Gloves

The perfect multipurpose, all season glove. Whether you need a thin running glove, a shower proof winter glove, or a general cycling glove, this one has it all. Improved for 2017 we've chosen a silicon gripper process that's more durable, we've beefed up the stitching on the waterproof finger mitt cover and snazzed the colour options up a little as well. We invented the convertible cycling glove at Planet X and no one does it better than us. Fleecy, stretchy, terry thumb wipe and with a waterproof roll-away mitt cover- what more could you want?

Toe Covers and Overshoes

If it's nuclear cold outside then we always go for the full overshoe option, especially if it's wet. Our Planet X Neoprene overshoes continue to be a best-seller, season after season. Warm, weatherproof and highly insulating these keep out the worst of the weather, and you can't go wrong for next to a tenner.

For those days when it's not into the minus numbers on the thermometer, we have Carnac's excellent Neoprene Toe Covers, quick and easy to fit these keep the wind and weather on the outside while keeping you toasty on the inside. If you are a warm bodied sort these may be all you ever need.


Planet X 365 Baselayers




Whether you like a vest, short sleeve or long sleeve baselayers, we have you covered. Made from seamless Prolen Dryfast the Planet X 365 baselayers are simply unbeatable. They have been our best selling clothing item for years for good reason- we aren't asking £80, we aren't asking £60, not even £40, the best value and performing baselayers you can ride start at under £20. Compression fitting, warm, highly wicking and perfect for any outdoor activity what's not to love. 


Magma Convertible Jacket


The race is on to keep you warm and dry as you push yourself to the limit and that’s why we’ve created the Magma Convertible Jacket. Built from windproof softshell fabric and cut with an athletic race fit the Magma is designed for riders who want the warmth of a long sleeve race jacket with the ability to convert to a short sleeve jersey in an instant. Chameleon-like, weatherproof and packed with technical details the Magma will shield you from the worst of the wind and the rain when the weather is foul but quickly converts into a short sleeved race jersey when the sun comes out.

With a 5K breathable and 5K waterproof rating, featuring full-length YKK zips, 3 stash pockets, weatherproof rear pocket and retro-reflective detailing the Magma offers the serious cyclist everything they need.


Reactor + 3-Season Cycling Jersey


The Reactor+ Jersey is what every cyclist needs. Totally windproof and utterly breathable it's designed to keep you cool and dry while protecting you from a little seasonal drizzle. Cut for recreational riding the Reactor feels perfect next to your skin on summer mornings and delivers maximum warmth for colder rides when paired with our 365 Base layers.

The Reactor + jersey is made from a blend of strategically placed, windproof softshell fabric and highly breathable Lycra panel. All front facing areas on the Reactor are softshell, to protect you from the chill winds and to keep the drizzle off. The back of the arms and the lower back are made from a high stretch Lycra fabric that provides great breathability for all out efforts, allowing you to stay dry on the long drags up steep climbs.

If you believe that the Devil is in the details then you'll love the Reactor+ almost as much as the Magma. Three rear pockets, one with a weatherproof side zip keep your essentials nice and dry while a tall, fleece lined neck helps to keep out the drafts. A Neoprene gripper waistband helps to keep everything in place as you ride and a pair of mesh lined pit zips are there to help you moderate ventilation. The Reactor+ Jersey is a serious bit of cycling kit, versatile and practical it's ideal for all cyclists who prefer a more generously fitting Jersey vs a full-on race fit.


Hydrocore Windproof Breathable Jacket


If it's too cold for the Reactor+ Jersey then it's time to step up to the Hydrocore Windproof Breathable Jacket. With the addition of a plush fleece lining and improved water resistance on the shoulders and arms the Hydrocore might be all you need to get through the winter on your bike. Totally windproof, highly breathable and able to protect you from the worst of the rain, only our Echostorm 2 Jacket offers more protection from the elements.


Carnac Podio, On-One Weaver and Planet X Apres Softshell Jackets


3 jackets, one incredible design. It’s not often that everyone in the Planet X office agrees on anything, but we’ve all got our names on the list for one of these jackets.

Our new Softshell jackets are the ultimate post-ride clobber, in fact, in the middle of winter, they’re the perfect jackets full stop! Warm, windproof and waterproof there's nothing more welcoming when the weather turns cold. With multiple pockets, zipped pits and a full sized hood that can be worn over a helmet, they’re supremely versatile.

Our luxurious Duck's Back protection combines a Teflon surface treatment with a Softshell fabric, PU membrane, and fleece liner to create something truly special. Packed with features that will make them all firm favourites. Whether you've been riding or not our Podio, Weaver and Apres Softshell jackets are simply top notch.

Don't just save if for bike sessions, though, we've been wearing these out in all conditions and nothing else comes close. They’re our new favourite jackets, a smash hit down the pub and perfect for those never-ending weekend dog walks.


Atmoshield Jacket and Gilet


The Atmoshield Jacket is a new take on the tried and tested race cape. The Atmoshield Jacket is made from our unique Showerflex fabric. Offering 3-ways stretch, 100% windproofing and heavy duty showerproof ability the Atmoshield Jacket is perfect for those cooler days and early mornings on the bike. Designed without the weight and bulk of fully taped seams the Atmoshield moulds to your body like a second skin while keeping you dry. Designed for fast riding and maximum comfort the Atmoshield uses new materials technology to deliver outstanding performance.

The Atmoshield Gilet uses the same Showerflex fabric and low volume design to deliver incredible performance for riders who want to stay warm by eliminating windchill. If you get caught in a passing shower you’ll be pleased that our Showerflex fabric keeps the rain on the outside so you can concentrate on your riding.

The Atmoshield Gilet is perfect for early morning Autumn rides in variable conditions allowing you to stay one step ahead of the weather.

The new Autumn Winter outerwear range from Planet X is simply the best line-up of jackets we’ve ever released. Packed with smart design touches and advanced technical fabrics they offer value for money that we think can’t be beaten.
