Mavic Frost winter shoes in stock!

Even with a full complement of winter clothing, our extremities are still susceptible to the cold. Regardless of whether we have a warm body and legs, if our face, hands and feet are feeling the chill, cycling is miserable – and in particular, feet. The body naturally channels heat and blood flow to the important parts of the body, so it is up to ourselves to ensure our feet are well looked after.

Mavic Frost

Fortunately, those clever chaps at Mavic have come up with the Mavic Frost – their take on the winter cycling shoe. The Frost features fully waterproof construction, featuring a GORE-TEX membrane that acts as a breathable, waterproof barrier around the foot. This is important as cold moisture within the shoe can be a main cause of cold toes and feet whilst cycling. The Frost also has a neoprene ankle gusset that helps keep out the water and maintain warmth without restricting flexibility and movement.

In addition to these winter features, the Frost features several of the features found in Mavic’s high end shoes such as their Ergo Fit 2D insole, Energy Composite Outsole that creates a light and thin outsole without losing power transfer, and three reliable hook and loop straps.

The downside is that Mavic Frost boots aren’t easy to get hold of in smaller sizes, and women are especially prone to cold feet. Fortunately, Cycle Art has a good range of sizes in the Mavic Frost in store.

All year round rider Chris is currently using a pair – so expect a full review on our review website shortly.

Turbo Trainer Sale

Kurt Kinetic Rock n Roll

We all do it. Hours upon hours of staring at the garage door or out the window of the spare room. Countless miles of cycling yet never getting anywhere. Some of us have headphones. Some, a TV on the wall. Others occupy their mind by staring at the numbers being spat back at them by their computer. Regardless of how, why or where, it’s an unnecessary evil – but one that can make the difference between a good season and bad.

As the weather goes from bad to worse, and with warnings of the heaviest snow in decades, more of us will be taking to the turbo rather than risking the elements.

Never fear – Cycle Art has a great range of turbo trainers to make your indoor training that little more bearable. Not only that, we’ll be doing 15% off RRP until Christmas.

As our sister shop Bicycle Repair Man prepares to switch to a GBS (Giant Brand Store), all their non-Giant stock must come over to us at Cycle Art. Unfortunately, we only have so much floor space, and with new 2014 models coming in all the time, we need to make space!
