Get the Gear! Cold Weather Cycling Gear

Deal of the Day on Pearl Izumi Winter Apparel

In case you hadn't noticed, winter is upon us. For skiers, snowboarders and snowshoers, that's great news. But for cyclists, it means time to start sweating it out indoors (hello, spin class!), laying low and losing months worth of training, or riding out into the cold, wet misery of sleet- and slush-slicked roads.

Don the right gear, though, and the misery is, well, a little less miserable. In fact, depending on where you live, you may be able to ride in relative comfort right through the worst of winter (barring excessive snow and ice, in which case you may want to consider a fatbike). Then, when the spring meltdown announces the start of racing season, your legs won't meltdown with the rest of the competition.

Now is a good time to change out your winter riding kit, with a solid sale on California-based Pearl Izumi goods (up to 50% off!) over at Put together your ultimate cold-weather uniform with these sale items (plus 100-plus more discounted men's and women's pieces):
