Under armor thermals, and theseI have always been a warm to fair weather rider but since I am in Ohio now I would like to extend my riding season as much as possible into the winter. If you are doing the same, What gear did you use, what works or doesn't and at what temperature.
Heated gloves and grips? Ok that's to cold even for me to ride!
I use my Aplinestar perf leathers in the winter, I just wear thermal under wear, maybe it's just me but I'm fine on my entire body expect my hands but even then I can do 45F with no problem when it drops below that I wear my thermals and use my heated gloves.To revive this thread as I'm in the market for some base/mid/warm riding gear that will keep me warm below 50 degrees until it starts to snow (essentially trying to extend the riding reason). The goal is to not buy additional gear but to make existing pieces warm without spending a ton of money. As great of a trick as it is, stuffing newspaper isn't my ideal solution.
I have a 1 piece perforated Dainese suit that I would want to make usable. My thoughts were to get a 2 piece base layer undersuit, Rukka, Dainese, or Under Armor/Nike. Too many options so asking for suggestions from experience. Would be able to use for my textile jacket and pants as well.
Gloves, Dainese makes a glove you can put underneath. Not sure how much warmer it would be. Don't want heated gear nor grips unless absolutely have to.
Helmet, any balaclava(not the desert) should do?
