Q36.5

Today, many cyclists also have the opportunity to travel to warm locations in the winter months to chalk up some quality winter miles.  One of our favourite winter get-aways is Mallorca, a Balearic Island off the coast of Spain.  Mallorca gave us the inspiration for these Essential pieces of Equipment.  The Cruise Equipment line was conceived to be a riding companion for various occasions when you need better insulation no matter what the conditions. It’s entirely made with a new fabric that we have developed the UF Active, a new way to conceive the Merino Wool which is a blend with polyamide to give more robustness and the fabric has undergone a durable water repellent treatment, to have the perfect insulation in mid-season also under wet conditions
