The new lines are all specific for dealing with adverse conditions on the road, with reflectives, thermal and weatherproofing protection all featuring prominently.
Mavic have updated their Cosmic Pro H2O thermal winter jacket, which has a teflon treatment, reflective detailing and five pockets for storing ride essentials - coming with a big old £230 price tag. They've also expanded their women's-specific Sequence range, and there's a new convertible jacket (with removable sleeves), bib tights and jerseys available.
The new £150 Cosmic Elite Vision shoes takes an already popular line and add in reflective details for riding in low light. Mavic say the black and silver synthetic construction creates 360° visibility when illuminated without sacrificing any breathability.
We'll be looking to test some of the new kit soon, so keep an eye on our reviews section in the coming months...
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
