Cold Weather Kit: Waterproofness, Warmth and Wind Protection are Keys to Riding in Wintertime

Vemar Jiano EVO TC Night Vision helmet

The likelihood of riding in the dark increases during winter, so better to make yourself more visible on the bike. Vemar's Night Vision lid absorbs the UV radiation of sunlight and then emits a glow that helps you stand out in low-light periods—plus the effect lasts for up to 8 hours. What's more, the modular lid is CE certified and comes with a 5 year warranty.

ICON PDX Waterproof Bib

Icon dubs this convenient accessory as 'rain gear that doesn't suck.' The PDX Bib's Tasloc ripstop waterproof material is cut into a high-backed, seam-sealed shell that goes on easy when dark skies threaten. Neat features include cargo pockets and removable stirrups, and the Bib's full-length leg zippers eliminate the 'one-legged roadside rain dance' all of us have experienced with other waterproof overpants. It's all finished with reflective graphic bits.

Rain Zip

Might as well pick up some Rain Zip if you've got a new shield. National Cycle's rain repellent treatment is specially formulated for their Quantum polycarbonate shields, but it's safe for all shields (even your face shield), causing water to bead up and blow off. The kit includes a 3 oz. bottle of Rain Zip, application cloth, and microfiber polishing cloth.

Eska Stream Waterproof Gloves

This classic-style ESKA Stream Waterproof glove for women not only repels moisture, it's also insulated. The top and the palm portions feature goat leather construction with leather reinforcements for better grip, and a gel pad supplies impact protection, while Softfill insulation keeps your digits toasty. The medium-length gauntlet will fit inside or outside jacket sleeves, and a Velcro wrist strap holds it all in place.

Lick's Model A Taillight

Upgrade your lighting with style. Lick's now offers its Classic Model A light assembly with a wet-look black powder coated finish, so you can add the perfect touch of nostalgia to your retro ride. Along with the brilliant red and amber face plate, each assembly comes with a clear lens and 12 volt bulb underneath for license plate illumination. You also get wire leads and accommodations for optional fender or side mounting hardware.

Alpinestars Tech ST All-weather Touring Jacket

You already know the Tech ST's 100 percent waterproof GORE-TEX outer shell will offer unsurpassed weather protection and breathability, but this all-weather all-star also rocks CE-certified elbow and shoulder protectors as well as chest and back pad compartments. Dig deeper for innovative features like 3-layer textile and leather construction with sealed waterproof seams and a Climate Control System with waterproof air intakes and rear exhaust zippers. Naturally, there's a removable thermal lining and detachable Windstopper collar with fleece lining.

Wind Splitter Vented Shield

The new Wind Splitter Vented Windshield from H-D Genuine Motor Accessories was developed (and tested in a wind tunnel) to relieve low pressure behind the windshield and reduce buffeting. An adjustable center vent matches air flow to the rider's height but the Wind Splitter also gives you the comfort of a larger windshield, while keeping road debris below your sight line. The hard-coated polycarbonate offers strength and scratch resistance, with a smoked finish to reduce glare. See website for Harley applications.

Hot Grips

No question, adding toasty heated grips to your bike can only increase your cool weather riding time, and Hot Grips is one of the best units going. Their ribbed pattern and molded material feels comfortable and is secure all year round. The kit comes with a complete wiring kit with resistor, switch, and installation instructions. Draws 24 watts on low and 36 watts on high. 4.75 in. X 7/8 in.
