Complementing the Performance collection you´ll find new Shimano gloves, overshoes, socks and headwear to keep your extremities happy when you’re out in the cold.
• The gloves include features such as 3M Thinsulate, Gore windstopper or Goretex waterproof technology, Poron palm padding for shock absorption, touch screen compatibility, reflective details, plus long-, mid- or short-cuff designs for wind, cold and rain. From the six new introductions four gloves are designed for the worse of winter´s wind or rain, for temperatures between -5°c to -10°c, and two gloves are for the early-season, designed for temperatures of 15°c-10°c and 5°c-0°c respectively.
• To protect the feet four new re-designed shoe covers provide varying degrees of warmth and waterproofing with features like tight Velcro closures, fully taped seams, reflective panels, and multiple layers of coated waterproof fabric designed to work perfectly with Shimano winter footwear (MW7, RW5 and MW5). Additionally a new toe cover provides a handy early- season option for racing, designed to match perfectly with Shimano’s S-PHYRE road racing footwear.
• More foot protection comes from features found in the two new Winter Socks. Thick pile fabrics offer heat retention whilst foot bridge cushioning, padded arch panels and left and right asymmetric designs are added to reduce foot fatigue.
• New headwear includes an over-helmet high-visibility wind and rain-blocking cover. Under-helmet options include the peaked Extreme Winter Cap, Windbreak or Thermal skull cap, or Thermal headband.
