For those who brave the elements to train or commute all winter, there is one thing that truly makes all the difference, staying warm. On a bike you cannot, or don't want to, wear huge coats and gear that weighs you down. One of the best ways to keep yourself warm without being weighed down, is with thermal baselayers. This is why Pearl Izumi created their cycling specific thermal baselayers, allowing for maximum warmth, comfort, and mobility.
The Pearl Izumi Thermal Zip Neck Baselayer is specifically designed to meet the needs of cyclists in the most demanding conditions. The P.R.O. Transfer dry fabric offers some of the best moisture transfer and odor control on the market, while the 8" zipper lets you cool down quick, when you need it most.

One of the best and easiest ways to improve your riding, is to know how you're performing.

The problem is, most cycling computers are $100s and so confusing you need to read a dictionary size manual to understand how to use it.
