Seven highlights from Kalf’s new autumn/winter clothing range

The British-based brand launches its debut autumn/winter collection

When we got our hands on some Kalf kit this summer, we were incredibly impressed with the quality packed into such good value garments, whether it be the Flux Chevron jersey and bib shorts, or the windproof Flux Transition jersey – but now the British brand has launched its first range for the darker seasons.

Again, the garments are to be sold exclusively in Evans Cycles stores, and they aim to repeat the high quality feel and construction of the spring/summer pieces while maintaining a competitive price point.

The range includes a full ensemble of kit that a cyclist might need for winter, from arm and leg warmers to full-blown thermal tights and gloves. We’ve had a look at the pieces that have caught our eye.

Kalf Club Thermal Men’s Bib Tights (£100)

For the deep winter months when warmers simply won’t do, it’s time to break out the bib tights. The Kalf Thermal Bib Tights feature a made-in-Italy thermal Roubaix fabric for warmth and comfort, while it’s also said to be resistant to high humidity in the form of freezing mist and fog.

The back of the tights features an iridescent Kalf logo

The top half boasts a zip-up section that covers the midriff, while the seams are placed across the entirety of the leg for reduced chance of chafing, according to Kalf. The backs of the legs also feature Kalf’s distinctive chevron design in a reflective print, while an Italian ‘Elastic Interface’ chamois provides the padding.

Kalf Thermal Men’s Jersey (£75)

The new thermal jersey also features an Italian thermal Roubaix fabric for warmth and softness against the skin, while the cut is said to be slightly looser than Kalf’s usual dimensions so that the rider can layer up.

Three large pockets adorn the rear with a reflective Kalf logo printed over the top, while a chevron design in reflective print features on the arm cuffs. The jersey is available in a plain black, or a svelte purple colourway.

Kalf Merino Neckwarmer and Beanie (£20 each)

Kalf is also launching a full range of accessories made of a merino wool-polyester blend for breathable, odour-free warmth. Alongside a range of thicker socks, the brand is also releasing a neckwarmer and beanie skull cap to help accessorise your look.

The collection also includes a range of accessories, including this beanie

The benefits of merino are well-versed, while the neckwarmer and beanie (available separately) help keep draughts out and essential heat in on long winter rides. The neckwarmer also features a reflective tab for additional visibility, while the beanie is constructed with an integrated thermal headband. Also available in black or purple.

Kalf Men’s Zero° Gloves (£40)

A good winter ensemble isn’t complete without a quality set of gloves to shield your hands from the freezing elements. The Zero° gloves are intended to meet this need with a C100 Thinsulate insulation, and a waterproof outer for additional protection.

The Zero gloves are designed to keep your hands warm all the way to the cafe stop

Other features include neoprene cuffs to keep out draughts and water ingress, a ‘smart touch’ index finger for touchscreen use, and a reflective band over the top of the knuckles for increased visibility. Kalf will also offer a set of ‘Five’ gloves for slightly milder conditions.

Kalf Thermal Arm and Leg Warmers (£20 & £30)

Finally, for when the weather simply doesn’t know what it wants to do, Kalf has launched a set of arm and leg warmers (available separately). They both feature thermal Roubaix fabric with flatlock stitching, and an ergonomic fit around the joints for a natural position on your limbs while riding.

Both also feature the distinctive chevron design in reflective print for added visibility, while the legs have a zip at the hems to assist easy donning and removal.
