Altura have launched a ‘Performance Layering System’ to help riders maintain their optimal core body temperature throughout autumn and winter.
The North Yorkshire-based firm, now approaching 20 years in the business, have also debuted their autumn/winter 2016 collection, with a wide range of clothing from the top-of-the-line Podium Elite series, mid-range Peloton line-up, entry-level Active collection, and Urban line-up, as well as the women’s-specific Road Series and Urban Collection.
Altura’s Performance Layering System essentially takes three of their flagship pieces, using three different fabric technologies to help the rider stay warm and dry. Altura Dry moves sweat away from the skin, Altura Thermo provides insulation and warmth, and Altura Shield offers protection from wind and rain. Altura say the lightweight layers are designed to complement each other, allowing the rider to either strip or build layers to maintain core body temperature and achieve their “most comfortable ride performance yet”.
