Ok, it's official - winter is here, and for the next three months or so we're likely to experience some bitterly cold days. But, that’s no excuse not to hop on your Orro bike for a brisk weekend ride, commute to work or trip to the shops. With the right Fox Wilson gear, you can still enjoy cycling even when the temperature drops down to the single digits.

It’s all about layering

Start with a good base layer like our Cromwell T-shirt then add our stylish cycling hoodie: the Thurloe. This women's cycling top is excellent at combatting the elements. Made from Schoeller EXP 4.0 Merino wool, it features extended cuffs for maximum protection and its Thermoregulating. We also use a 3D knitting process which means there are no abrasion points and excellent ventilation. Not only practical, but the Thurloe hoodie also looks great too – no unwanted bulk here!

Next up is the Portman jacket. This stylish cycling jacket uses the best technical “WarmWool" providing superior wind and water protection and added breathability. This urban cycling jacket features a classic diamond quilt but with streamlined shoulders and seams to make sure you don’t go out looking puffed up like a snowman.

Bottoms up

So we’ve got your top half covered. Now to the bottom half and what could be better than our Chelsea cycling jeans. This piece of urban cycling clothing uses durable 3XDry Schoeller denim. This bespoke fabric is both water and stain resistant and features ActiveSilver – an anti-odour treatment.


The Chelsea women's cycling jeans not only feel great but they look great too. Cut in a modern skinny leg that doesn't go baggy after a long ride, so you arrive at your destination looking fabulous.
