Ride green when grey with Trek’s all-new winter apparel. In the past, riding in the winter meant wearing all your gear at once. Now, it’s 3 maybe 4 layers max. I’ve compared the latest gear from brands like Gore to athleisure wear because of how comfortable it is. Trek offers similar comfort and performance in women’s and men’s sizes.
Earlier this year, Trek released sustainable kit for the summer and now they’ve extended the line to winter. Like the summer kit, the lines are clean and classic. It’s also sustainably sourced and made with recycled materials. The pieces are bluesign product verified and STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX. Trek sent me samples of the tights, jacket, and jersey. Plus a pair of wool socks.

In the Methow Valley where it’s 10 degrees today, I’ll stick with my trusted Gore setup. For the Seattle area where it barely dips below freezing, I’m happy to have another choice and appreciate the effort Trek has made to reduce its carbon footprint and mine.
